Abstract

To the best of our knowledge, we present the first case report showing the possibility of resolving intestinal obstruction with WAPRT in a patient with recurrent PMP. It is our opinion that WAPRT delivered by IMAT, in analogy with ovarian cancer, should be considered as a palliative treatment option in managing patients with recurrent PMP especially in case of obstruction.
