Abstract This article reviews a single institution's experience with 68 patients (21 females, 47 males) prospectively treated over the last 2 decades with an aggressive local-regional approach, combining maximal cytoreductive surgery with heated intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy and early postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy. This multimodality treatment has resulted in a median survival of 67 months. Female patients had a significantly better prognosis than males. The other significant predictive factors of survival were: age, diagnosis by incidental findings, tumor extent, pathology, and completeness of cytoreduction.
