Introduction/Background The usage of cytoreductive surgery combined with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for advanced gynecological cancers is increasing. HIPEC has been widely investigated in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis, including those with epithelial ovarian cancer. We aimed to evaluate the effects of re-HIPEC in patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer who underwent re-CRS and re-HIPEC.
Methodology It was a retrospective study analyzing the patients (n=9) with advanced stage EOC undergoing HIPEC following the CRS at two tertiary hospitals.
Results The mean age was 53.22 ± 4.68 years. The subtypes of the patients were high-grade serous cancer (n=8) and clear cell ovarian cancer (n=1) (table 1). The median recurrence time after first HIPEC was 15 (8–53, range) months. None of them developed complication during re-HIPEC.
Conclusion Re-cytoreduction with re-HIPEC is feasible and safe in recurrent ovarian cancer patients.
