Destroys Microscopic Cancer Cells
Dr. Özsan said, “Hot chemotherapy, which is a hope for cancer treatment in uterine and colon cancer surgery, is much more effective than standard chemotherapy in colorectal and peritoneal cancer types. Cytoreductive surgery is the application of cancer drugs heated to 42 degrees into the abdomen with the help of a device and hand, after all visible tumors are removed. It is a concentrated treatment that aims to destroy microscopic cancer cells. It minimizes the side effects that the body is exposed to with standard chemotherapy. This method of treatment allows the administration of the maximum and most effective dose of medication. Before applying hype, the patient should be carefully evaluated and evaluated for suitability for this treatment. The patient's age, general health status and the stage of the cancer are among the important criteria in the evaluation."
