About this book

This book provides surgeons and oncologists with a well-founded and detailed overview of the available treatment options for peritoneal malignancy and differential selection of the appropriate forms of therapy. Systemic chemotherapy options are also considered, as are surgical cytoreduction (CRS) and all forms of intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) especially hyperthermic IPC (HIPEC), and immunotherapy, including specific procedures such as PIPAC.

Subsequent chapters address perioperative care, complications and recurrences, as well as psycho-oncological, palliative medical and nursing care. The process of parietal and visceral peritonectomy in the large and small intestine is additionally illustrated by three video clips accessible online. Covering a broad range of aspects, including peritoneal metastasis and intraperitoneal chemotherapy, the book offers a valuable tool for surgeons, oncologists and anesthesiologists alike.
