A Phase II Study Of Cytoreduction, Gastrectomy, And Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemoperfusion (HIPEC) In Patients With Gastric Adenocarcinoma And Carcinomatosis Or Positive Cytology
MD Anderson Study Status
Cisplatin, Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, Mitomycin
This phase II trial studies how well heated mitomycin and cisplatin during surgery work in treating patients with stomach or gastroesophageal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as mitomycin and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Heating a chemotherapy solution and infusing it directly into the abdomen may kill more tumor cells.
