Core Tip

Core tip: This article reviews the results of the comprehensive treatment for peritoneal metastasis from gastric cancer, and verifies the effects of cytoreductive surgery and perioperative chemotherapy, including neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), and hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Multivariate analyses revealed that the completeness of cytoreduction, peritoneal cancer index less than the threshold levels after NAC, cytologic status, pathologic response after NAC are the independent prognostic factors. Patients satisfying these factors are recommended to undergo D2-gastrectomy combined with complete removal of PC and HIPEC.
