HIPEC: Advanced Treatment for Abdominal Cancers by Dr.Chintamani Godbole

by | Aug 25, 2023

What exactly is HIPEC? How does it differ from traditional chemotherapy? How is it administered, and who are the ideal candidates? These are just a few of the questions we’ll be tackling today. I’ll be breaking down the science behind HIPEC.

In this video, we’ll take a closer look at the three components that make up the acronym HIPEC: Hyperthermic, Chemotherapy, and Intraperitoneal.

The first element, Hyperthermic, refers to the application of heat during the treatment process. We’ll delve into the science behind hyperthermia’s impact on cancer cells and understand why raising the temperature can enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy agents.

Moving on to Chemotherapy, we’ll explore how the direct administration of chemotherapy drugs within the abdominal cavity differs from systemic chemotherapy. I’ll break down the advantages of this targeted approach and discuss the types of cancers that can benefit the most from HIPEC.

Finally, we’ll demystify the term Intraperitoneal, which refers to the cavity that houses organs like the stomach, liver, and intestines. I’ll explain the rationale behind delivering chemotherapy directly into this space and highlight the importance of surgical expertise in this procedure.
