SPECT was performed in 51 patients after cytoreductive surgery in combination with intraperitoneal chemotherapy. The detected volume was compared to the number of subsequent sequential postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy courses that could be performed without further surgical intervention. SPECT data was found to predict feasibility of sequential postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
Uptake of substances from the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
Washing out of the peritoneal cavity. The procedure is a diagnostic as well as a therapeutic technique following abdominal trauma or inflammation.
