Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare disease characterized by a complete redistribution of mucin into the peritoneal cavity. Thirty three PMP patients referred to National Cancer Institute of Milan were submitted to 34 consecutive procedures of peritonectomy and intra peritoneal hyperthermic perfusion (IPHP). Five yrs overall survival has been 96% while 3 yrs PFS 68%. Morbility, mortality and toxicity were 18, 3 and 9% respectively. Peritonectomy associated with IPHP is the most indicated approach to cure patients with DPAM and IFG, subgroup of pseudomyxoma peritonei.
