Abstract: Objectives: We demonstrate a case report of the patient who suffered from advanced gastric cancer and was treated by means of surgery and HIPEC.
Background: Gastric cancer is a therapeutic challenge in the European countries due to late diagnosis, advanced stages of the disease in time of diagnosis and early recurrence in cases where a radical surgery is possible.
Method: The patient with an advanced gastric cancer (pT3N2M1 – peritoneal and ovarian metastases) was treated by means of radical surgery in combination with hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) and early postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (EPIC). Surgical treatment was followed by a standard chemotherapy. Due to recurrence, there was the second look surgery one year later again with HIPEC procedure.
Results: Patient survived 32 months after diagnosis and despite intraperitoneal recurrence she never developed clinically significant ascites and she never suffered from intestinal obstruction.
Conclusion: This case demonstrate a potential benefit of new oncosurgical approach –radical surgery + HIPEC + EPIC in the treatment of gastric cancers (Tab. 2, Fig. 6, Graph 4, Ref. 18).
