BACKGROUND Laparoscopy is indicated in many patients with abdominal and pelvic malignancy. If cancer cells are present within the peritoneal space, there is a possibility for port site metastases to develop. METHODS The pathophysiology for occurrence of port site metastases was reviewed. Technical modifications to reduce the incidence of these abdominal wall sites for disease progression were suggested. RESULTS Evacuation of all gases and all fluid from the peritoneal space through the…

Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma. Case-report demonstrating pitfalls of diagnostic laparoscopy.
TLDR
If a malignant source of ascites is suspected and a diagnosis is not obtained by paracentesis, laparoscopy should be used to establish a diagnosis, however, trocars should only be placed along the midline of the abdominal wall so that port sites can be excised at the time of cytoreductive surgery.
Port site metastases after minimally invasive resection for colorectal cancer: A retrospective study of 13 patients.
TLDR
Port site metastases do occur after minimally invasive colon resection, and they were present concomitantly with peritoneal metastases in 13 patients who had CRS/HIPEC.
The Utility of Diagnostic Laparoscopy in Patients Being Evaluated for Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Peritoneal Chemotherapy
TLDR
Laroscopic assessment of PC is a useful tool to assess the complete resectability of peritoneal surface disease in patients for whom there is inadequate information concerning disease extent and also helps selected patients to avoid an unnecessary laparotomy.

TLDR
Prospective data regarding the incidence of trochar site disease is not available but it does continue to occur and this unintended adverse consequence of laparoscopy may be reduced by limiting trochar sites to the midline.
Abdominal computed tomographic scan in the selection of patients with mucinous peritoneal carcinomatosis for cytoreductive surgery.
TLDR
This study shows that selection criteria for patients with mucinous peritoneal carcinomatosis are available on a preoperative CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis and predicts the probability of a complete resection.
Port site metastases after laparoscopic colorectal surgery for cure of malignancy
TLDR
The evidence to date to support prospective randomized trials of laparoscopic colectomy for cure of carcinoma is discussed.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic impact of routinely use of staging laparoscopy (S-LPS) in patients with primary advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (AEOC). METHODS All women were submitted to
Rectus abdominis muscle transplant for repair of abdominal wall defects required for cancer resections: Case report
  • P. Sugarbaker
  • Medicine
    International journal of surgery case reports
  • 2019
TLDR
In patients with abdominal or pelvic cancer, mesh repair of a hernia may be contraindicated and a rectus abdominus muscle transplant can be used to repair a large contralateral abdominal wall hernia defect.
Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy in Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
Among patients with stage III epithelial ovarian cancer, the addition of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) to interval cytoreductive surgery resulted in longer recurrence‐free survival and overall survival than surgery alone and did not result in higher rates of side effects.
Circumferential cutaneous traction for exposure of the layers of the abdominal wall
TLDR
Current techniques for retraction do not provide visualization of the abdominal wall, and clear exposure of the operative field at all stages of a surgical procedure is a requirement of an optimal intervention.
