Perioperative Management in CRS and HIPEC of Peritoneal Malignancy

From 9th to the 14th December 2022 we are organizing the interdisciplinary workshop under the auspices of the surgical (DGAV and BDC) and anaesthesiological (DGAI and BDA) societies as well as the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO)


The combination of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) as a treatment for peritoneal metastases is becoming ever more significant for both palliative and curative cancer treatment. In order to bring the greatest possible benefit to the patient, both careful preoperative selection and also standardized perioperative management are crucial. The Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) for performing CRS/HIPEC at the Charité Department of Surgery were developed on the basis of both experience and the most recent research. These SOPs are part of what made it possible for a Department of Surgery to be certified by the German Cancer Society and OnkoZert as a peritoneal malignancy center.

Module 1: This two day workshop will include expert talks, videos, interactive case discussions both for surgical and on postoperative intensive care unit belongings. Participants will experience the most significant problems in the operating room or intensive care unit. The key element of this training is a post-scenario debriefing where the participants can discuss treatment strategies, difficulties, standards, and questions. After this module they are able to prepare a SOP, which fits their clinical situation. Participant are encouraged to write their skeletal own SOP and discuss contents in module 2.

Module 2: During three days participants will join the clinical pathway at the Charité Department of Special Surgical Oncology. Multi-disciplinary board discussion, intraoperative live procedures for surgical and anaesthesiological belongings. Postoperative ICU and ward rounds and discussion along the SOP Guidelines of the department. (limited number of participants).
