Overview

HIPEC is a novel technique in which those abdominal malignancies are treated which were previously thought to be untreatable and were only offered palliative care. The indication of HIPEC is therefore very specific and it is meant for those cancer cases of abdomen in which the disease has spread only inside the abdomen and not through the blood or lymphatic. In these patients, the cancer is seen in the form of multiple small sand like particles over the inner layer of the abdominal cavity called as the peritoneal sheath. Such type of spread is usually seen in the following cancers:

  • Primary peritoneal cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Appendicular cancer
  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei.
  • Colorectal malignancy
  • Some of Pancreatic and Gastric cancers.
