A 43 year old female, Rajni Khare, resident of Lucknow, suffered from Mucinous Adenocarcinoma appendix (an Abdominal Cancer) and had earlier undergone two surgeries in other hospitals but her cancer did not fully cure and got recurrence. She visited so many hospitals for her treatment but could not get any satisfactory result. Finally she approached Apollo Medics Super Specialty Hospital.

Apollo Medics Consultant-Surgical Oncologist Dr. Kamlesh Verma said “After seeing the critical condition of patient, we decided to undertake Cyto-reductive surgery and HIPEC. The complete procedure is carried out in two parts. In first part, which is called Cyto-reductive surgery, all cancer is removed from the abdomen by a surgery. In second part, which is called the HIPEC procedure, a heated sterile solution containing a chemotherapeutic agent is circulated throughout the peritoneal cavity for a maximum of two hours. This process can avoid the usual side effects of chemotherapy.

Normally the entire procedure, including surgery and HIPEC, may take between 6-18 hours to complete because surgery times vary. The more the cancer has spread within the abdomen, the longer surgery takes. This particular procedure took 12 hours to complete
