5th International Workshop on PIPAC & Peritoneal Carcinomatosis

27th - 28th April 2021, Tuesday - Wednesday

Registration is currently on-hold due to the recent COVID-19.

PIPAC (Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy) is a novel treatment for both primary and secondary peritoneal carcinomatosis. It makes use of the unique physical properties of pressurized gas which enhance the efficacy and safety of chemotherapy. Early preclinical and clinical studies showed encouraging outcomes. This is the forth workshop on PIPAC in Asia-Pacific and Internationally and we have invited the pioneers and leading experts in PIPAC and its related field to be our teaching faculty. In addition, there will be hands-on session and live surgery so that all of you will have a thorough understanding of this technology and the disease.

This workshop will provide an update on the latest research and treatment of peritoneal metastasis, incorporating the role and evidence for PIPAC. This hands-on workshop will provide practical, in-depth information around the set-up and technique of PIPAC, which includes a dry lab simulated session as well as a live, in the operating theatre, demonstration of the procedure.
