BACKGROUND Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) combined with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) can prolong survival in selected patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). However, there is little data on patients' recovery process after this complex treatment. This study aimed to describe the in-hospital postoperative recovery and factors related(More)
Patients with peritoneal or local metastases from colorectal cancer have a poor prognosis. However, aggressive treatments by debulking surgery and infusional intraperitoneal (i.p.) chemotherapy have been tried and appear to benefit selected patients. We assayed the effects of debulking surgery and i.p. chemotherapy with respect to survival and compared the(More)
BACKGROUND To adequately perform peritonectomy, the use of an electrocautery device at a high voltage is recommended. The aim of this study was to analyse the amount of airborne and ultrafine particles (UFP) generated during peritonectomy and to compare this with standard colon and rectal cancer surgery (CRC). METHOD UFP was measured approximately 2-3 cm(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical excision is the standard treatment for chronic pilonidal disease, but all excisional techniques are associated with tissue loss, risk of wound break down, and chronic healing problems. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare sinus excision and primary closure vs a laying open technique in a prospective randomized trial. DESIGN,(More)
In a defined population between 1973 and 1992 151 patients with irresectable metastatic or local rectal cancer were identified. Eighty-one patients underwent resection of the primary tumour (group 1) whereas the primary tumour was left in situ in 70 patients (group 2). During the same time period, 444 patients underwent curative resection. The median(More)
To evaluate the perfusate and systemic kinetics of oxaliplatin during hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) using a selective analytical technique. HIPEC was carried out in eight patients by the open abdomen coliseum technique for 30 min at 41.5-43°C with an average of 427 mg/m2 of oxaliplatin in 5% dextrose solution. Blood and perfusate samples(More)
BACKGROUND Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is fatal without special combined cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC). This study was designed to identify factors that may increase the risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality from combined CRS and IPC interventions for PC. Survival based on primary tumour type and extent of(More)
PURPOSE The influence of septic complications on long-term prognosis after surgery for rectal cancer is controversial. This study was performed to investigate whether an abdominal or perineal septic complication was associated with rectal cancer recurrence. METHODS A total of 228 patients who had undergone curative resection for rectal cancer from 1973 to(More)

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare debulking surgery and cytoreductive surgery (CRS) in patients with Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) regarding efficacy and safety. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data were extracted from medical records and treatment outcomes were analyzed for all 152 patients with PMP who were scheduled for debulking surgery and(More)
