A while ago somebody mentioned that they had been given HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy) in the UK.
I'm interested in HIPEC and although it isn't used routinely here (doesn't seem to be recommended by NICE) I understand it is used quite regularly in the States. I wondered if it is available on the NHS at all and if so which hospital/area offers that type of treatment?
I'm also interested to hear if anybody has experience, successful or otherwise? Was it given as first line treatment ? Is it used after surgery for recurrence?
I'd be grateful for any information.
Thanks very much
