HIPEC (Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy) is a procedure used in cancers that are spread in the surface of the peritoneal cavity. Heated sterile solution with added chemotherapy (up to 420C) is circulated in the abdomen during approximately 90 minutes with the goal of killing any hidden tumor cells. It is applied directly following peritonectomy or Cytoreductive surgery.

Why use this technique

HIPEC treatment provides surgeons with the ability to apply high doses of chemotherapy directly into the peritoneal cavity without significant toxicity to the remainder of the body. The effects of the heat may increase the efficacy of the treatment. In this way the normal side effect of chemotherapy can be avoided.
