Abstract: OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of treatment of diffuse malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (DMPM) by cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) at a single center.
METHODS: We conducted a retrospective single-center observational cohort study of consecutive patients with DMPM treated by CRS-HIPEC at the Department of Surgery I of the University Hospital in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
RESULTS: Data on a total of 16 patients were processed. The study group of 16 patients had six (37.5 %) women. The mean age was approximately 62 years. Complete cytoreduction was achieved in all patients (100 %) (CC0: 75 %, CC1: 25 %). All patients underwent a closed form of HIPEC with cisplatin and doxorubicin for 90 min. The mean hospital stay was 13.5 days, including 4.38 days in the ICU (13.5 ± 5.07 and 4.38 ± 1.49, respectively). Major postoperative complications (CD grades 3–4) occurred in four patients (25 %). In-hospital mortality was 6.25 %. In the study group, the median overall survival was 20 months, and the median disease-free survival was 10.3 months.
CONCLUSIONS: Also under the conditions at our specialized center, CRS-HIPEC is considered as an effective, affordable, and safe therapy with OS, DFS, morbidity, and mortality rates comparable to those reported in the literature (Tab. 5, Fig. 2, Ref. 28). Text in PDF www.elis.sk
