The study analyses the results of surgical treatment and intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy on a group of 22 patients, affected by peritoneal carcinomatosis of different origins, and treated at Policlinico Multimedica (Milan) between June 2001 and December 2004. Surgical major complications were present in the 23% of the patients, and post-operative mortality rate was 13%. None of the patients presented chemotherapy related toxicity. Six patients died within 2 and 40 months after surgery, while 13 are alive within 4 and 40 months after operation.
