Long term survival and perioperative propensity score matched outcomes of diaphragmatic resections compared to stripping in cytoreductive surgery + intra-peritoneal chemotherapy.

American Journal of Surgery 2019 June 23 [Link] Singh B, Singh G, Alzahrani N, Morris DL Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of short and long term outcomes of diaphragm resection and repair in cyto-reductive surgery (CRS) and intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (IPC). METHODS: 1230 consecutive CRS/IPC procedures were performed between 1996 and 2018 in Sydney, Australia. […]
