HIPEC Technique


HIPEC Technique: After all visible tumor has been removed, the abdominal cavity is rinsed with heated chemotherapy. Tubes are applied in the abdominal cavity to bring heated fluid from a reservoir to the abdomen and to aspirate it again in a closed circuit. As soon as the desired temperature has been reached, the chemotherapy is being added to the fluid.

For delivery of the chemotherapy bath, there is one inflow tube and 3 outflow tubes connected to a heater and pump which circulated the heated solution at a high flow rate.
