BACKGROUND Peritoneal tumor dissemination arising from colorectal cancer, appendiceal cancer, gastric cancer, gynecologic malignancies or peritoneal mesothelioma is a common sign of advanced tumor stage or disease recurrence and mostly associated with poor prognosis. METHODS AND RESULTS In the present review article preoperative workup, surgical(More)
BACKGROUND In selected patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer prognosis can be improved by cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). METHODS Between September 1995 and February 1999, 19 patients (mean age 52 years, range 30-72 years) with peritoneal carcinomatosis from primary or recurrent epithelial(More)
Peritoneal carcinomatosis is regarded as a common sign of advanced tumor stage, tumor progression or local recurrence of appendiceal and colorectal cancer and is generally associated with poor prognosis. Although survival of patients with advanced stage CRC has markedly improved over the last 20 years with systemic treatment, comprising combination(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess pancreatic fistula rate and secondary endpoints after pancreatogastrostomy (PG) versus pancreatojejunostomy (PJ) for reconstruction in pancreatoduodenectomy in the setting of a multicenter randomized controlled trial. BACKGROUND PJ and PG are established methods for reconstruction in pancreatoduodenectomy. Recent prospective trials(More)
Peritoneal seedings of a colorectal tumor represent the second most frequent site of metastasis (after the liver). In the era of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-only chemotherapy, the prognosis was poor for colorectal cancer with peritoneal metastases. Within the last few years, new chemotherapeutic and targeted agents have improved the prognosis; however, the(More)
Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) provide an effective treatment option for selected patients with colorectal peritoneal metastasis with encouraging survival results. Many different drug combinations and HIPEC regimens including bidirectional, i.e. synchronous intravenous and intraperitoneal, drug application(More)
In the past, peritoneal metastases (PM) were considered as a final stage of cancer, and patients were offered a palliative chemotherapy or at best supportive care. In the early 1990s, some surgeons developed a new therapeutic alternative based on the combined treatment. In this curative intent, the macroscopic disease was treated with cytoreductive surgery(More)
Living liver donation is a possible immediate option for decreasing the shortage of liver allografts worldwide. Risks related to the donation make this procedure ethically controversial. Study groups of medical students (N= 330) from three different nations were analyzed with a complex questionnaire, and data were subjected to multiparameter analysis. The(More)
