The Registry of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy – A Mandatory Step in the Development of this Therapeutic Approach in Romania
Keywords:Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, Peritoneal surface malignancies, Patient database, Treatment registries
AbstractMulticenter/institutional studies have been the basis for the confirmation of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy as a therapeutic option for selected patients with Peritoneal Surface Malignancies. Starting from this model, using our experience in the implementation of a Diagnostic Laparoscopy for Abdominal Cancer database in surgical departments in Cluj-Napoca, we aimed to create a extended database, serving for Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy. By coding the parameters of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, which is a complex treatment both in terms of the equipment and techniques used and through the integration of different ways of approach (surgery, cytostatics drugs, hyperthermia), a Microsoft Access database was developed and implemented. The adoption and use of this database, followed by the implementation of a registry, will create the conditions required for the “coagulation” of individual experiences in Romania.
