Abstract

The role of minimally invasive, laparoscopic hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has been reported by several centers around the world, mainly to palliate intractable ascites in patients with extensive peritoneal surface malignancies who are not candidates for a complete cytoreduction. In this paper, we report on the first case of combined laparoscopic cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC with curative intent in a patient with limited peritoneal mesothelioma.
