ABSTRACT
A 34-year-old male diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritoneii presented for an exploratory laparotomy and hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy. A circuit using two roller pumps and a cardioplegia administration set was assembled to deliver the chemotherapy perfusate at a consistent temperature. The authors discuss a case in which this treatment modality was used, describing the perfusionist's role and the circuit design.
