Abstract

1INTRODUCTIONCytoreductive surgery (CRS), along with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has been gaining acceptance as the treatment of choice for selected patients with peritoneal metastases (PM) from gastrointestinal, ovarian and peritoneal origins. In a prospective study of 460 patients with PM from gastrointestinal malignancy, who underwent 501 (CRS‐HIPEC) procedures, the median survival was found to be 22.2 months with a 5‐year survival rate up to 27.8%. This exceeds the median survival of approximately 6 months for patients with PM who are treated with systemic chemotherapy or conservative management with a palliative intent.With higher life expectancy in an increasingly aging population, we can expect an increasing number of elderly patients, i.e. aged 65 and above as well. However, physicians may be less likely to consider CRS and HIPEC for elderly patients because of the presumed higher morbidity associated with age. There have been studies looking at the morbidity and mortality associated with CRS and HIPEC, but none are focused on elderly patients, with limited literature on CRS and HIPEC in the elderly population.Using prospectively collected data from a tertiary institution, we examined the outcomes of elderly patients who underwent CRS and HIPEC for PM from ovarian, colorectal and other gastrointestinal cancers,
