Overview

Some types of cancers are very difficult to treat, particularly the ones located in the abdominal cavity. HIPEC experts say the heat makes the chemotherapy more powerful at killing these cancer cells and hence there is a specially devised HIPEC machine which delivers HIPEC at constant temperature. Hence HIPEC is a regional focussed chemotherapy which kills cancer cells maximally without much systemic/general side effects as seen in systemic chemotherapy.
