Identifying the incidence of respiratory complications following diaphragmatic cytoreduction and hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy

ConclusionsOnly 3.2% of patients developed a symptomatic respiratory complication following CRS and HIPEC. A pleural effusion was identified in almost all patients requiring a diaphragmatic peritonectomy as part of their CRS; however, less than one in ten of these patients required pleural drainage. Prophylactic insertion of a pleural drainage tube is, therefore, not indicated following CRS and HIPEC.

CONCLUSION: Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy for isolated low-volume colorectal peritoneal metastases are not safe and effective, with low morbidity. It offers selected patients a highly favorable overall and relapse-free survival.

In conclusion, these malignancies should be considered a single entity during treatment. IMPACT STATEMENT What is already known on this subject? Epithelial ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecological cancer in women worldwide. There are different histological types including ovarian, tubal and peritoneal carcinomas in which malignant cells form in the tissue covering the ovary or lining the fallopian tube of peritoneum. Recent data have supported the view that these malignancies should be considered a single entity and should be treated the same way. What the results of this study add? In the present study, we ...

CONCLUSIONS: PIPAC offers a novel treatment option for patients with PM. Our data show that PIPAC is safe and well-tolerated. Ascites production can be controlled by PIPAC in patients with intestinal cancer. Further studies are required to document the significance of PIPAC within palliative therapy concepts.

ConclusionInitial tumor load has not been found associated with PFS after complete surgery. Adipocytes-enriched areas and right mesocolic areas involvement were associated with poor prognosis in patients receiving primary debulking surgery. Larger-scale studies are needed to assess whether initial tumor load has a prognostic impact even after complete cytoreductive surgery is achieved.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To characterize the frequency and risk factors of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) in patients undergoing open radical cystectomy (RC). METHODS: We identified 3,285 patients with urothelial carcinoma treated with RC for curative intent between 1980 and 2016. At last follow-up, 72.1% (2,370/3,285) of patients had died, with a median follow-up of 8.6 years (Interquartile Range, (IQR) 3.7, 14.1). PC was defined as any recurrence involving the omentum, small bowel, and mesentery. Overall-specific survival (OSS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) was evaluated using Kaplan-Meier methodology and l...
