Abstract

Aims: This study assessed the functional status and quality of life (QOL) of patients with disseminated peritoneal cancer (DPC) before and after cytoreductive surgery plus intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy (IPHC). Methods: Patients with confirmed or suspected diagnosis of gastro-intestinal cancer including stomach, pancreas, hepatobiliary and colorectal cancer with peritoneal implants were enrolled in the study. Sixty-four patients completed the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Colon (FACT-C) scale and several other instruments at baseline. Forty-eight, 40, 39 and 31 patients were assessed at approximately 2 weeks post-surgery, and 3, 6 and 12 months respectively. Results. There was a significant overall effect on the physical (P=0.0025), emotional (P
