First of all the macroscopictumor tissues are extracted after that peritonealperfusion is started with giving heated 42°C chemotherapeuticsolution via abdominal drains. It is important tomaintain normovolemia, to regulate coagulation and renalparameters during perioperative period, to compansatehypothermia during cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermiaduring HIPEC and to regulate hemodynamic changesdue to increased abdominal pressure during HIPEC.In this case report, we aimed to share anaesthetic experienceand to evaluate anaesthetic problems in 45 yearsold ASA I patient undergoing cytoreductive surgery andhypertermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy in which newlyestablished in our hospital for appendix tumor.
