Are there options for HIPEC in this setting considering there are no other metastases.
Can emergency HIPECs be arranged at short time instance, as in within 1-2 weeks.
All the best.

Scans indeterminate but not resolving conservatively which points to cancer.
Patient had some peritoneal involved 6 months ago.
