First of all the macroscopic tumor tissues are extracted after that peritoneal perfusion is started with giving heated 42°C chemotherapeutic solution via abdominal drains. It is important to maintain normovolemia, to regulate coagulation and renal parameters during perioperative period, to compansate hypothermia during cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermia during HIPEC and to regulate hemodynamic changes due to increased abdominal pressure during HIPEC.
In this case report, we aimed to share anaesthetic experience and to evaluate anaesthetic problems in 45 years old ASA I patient undergoing cytoreductive surgery and hypertermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy in which newly established in our hospital for appendix tumor.
