Expediency of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy in patients with ovarian cancer. Discussion aspects

August 26, 2021

Treatment for advanced ovarian cancer usually involves cytoreductive surgery and systemic chemotherapy in combination with targeted. The results of treatment are still disappointing and rate of mortality 9.0 per 100,000 female population, regardless of age. This led to the study of new treatments, namely, hyperthermic intra-abdominal chemotherapy in combination with cytoreductive. We have analyzed various studies and studies based on which the use of HIPEC combination with cytoreduction recurrence-free survival for patients with advanced ovarian cancer by 3.5 months and the overall survival rate by 11.8 months.
