Objectives: Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) means poor prognosis in the majority of cases. Intrapleural Hyperthermic perfusion chemotherapy (HIPEC) looks promising approach for these patients. We aimed to investigate whether cytoreductive surgery followed by HIPEC provides any survival benefit in cases with metastatic MPEs.
