Abstract

Peritoneal metastases from colon cancer are a particularly challenging disease process given the limited response to systemic chemotherapy. In patients with isolated peritoneal metastases, cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy offers a potential treatment option to these patients with limited peritoneal metastases as long as a complete cytoreduction is achieved. Decision about a patient's candidacy for this treatment modality should be undertaken by a multidisciplinary group at expert centers.
