Over the past decade, there has been a considerable increase in the utilization of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) in the management of patients with peritoneal metastases. This is due to improved safety and favorable oncologic outcomes, including curative potential. CRS/HIPEC has a steep learning curve and requires familiarity with peritonectomy procedures. This review will outline the technical aspects and learning curve of CRS/HIPEC.
