Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC)

Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Advantages

  • Successful treatment and cure for advanced cancers which were considered incurable in the past.
  • Several studies internationally have now reported that in properly selected cancer patients, HIPEC treatment can improve a person's overall life expectancy and quality of life.
  • Studies further report that a combination of cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC may be more effective and beneficial than chemotherapy or surgery alone
  • HIPEC allows higher doses of chemotherapy to be administered in the abdomen and hence direct killing effect on tumor cells.
  • Heated chemotherapy improves the blood supply into the abdominal tissues and improves penetration of chemotherapeutic drug into the cancers cells which allows the drug to be effective in killing the cancer cells.
  • Intra-abdominal instillation of chemotherapy reduces exposure of the rest of the body to chemotherapy and reduces the systemic complications.
