Abstract

Background: Women with ovarian cancer primarily present with advanced intra-abdominal disease, frequently involving the diaphragm. Cases: We present 2 cases of combined planned intra-thoracic and abdominopelvic radical cytoreduction for stage IV peritoneal malignancy. Conclusions: Our case report indicates the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach in treating patients with advanced-stage peritoneal disease. Multi-disciplinary surgical procedures can achieve optimal cytoreduction and possibly improve overall survival.
