Background and Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the recurrence rate in gastric cancer patients with positive peritoneal lavage cytology in comparison with negative lavage in patients affiliated to Ayatollah Taleghani Hospital.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive-analytic study. 59 patients with gastric cancer are included in the study. Lavage of peritoneal cavity is performed with 150 cc of saline tare. 4 LAMs are provided from each patient.
Postoperative follow-up of patients after recurrence of the disease regardless of the stage of the disease in patients with cytological lavage positive and negative.
Results: In this study, 59 patients were diagnosed with gastric cancer, 20 men and 39 women. The results of the study showed that there is a significant relationship between peritoneal fluid cytology and relapse (P value = 0.001).
Conclusion : In this study, the peritoneal cytology value in determining the prognosis of stomach, colon, and pancreatic cancers was more studied and the relationship between positive cytology of peritoneum lavage and inappropriate prognosis was confirmed. This method has also been used to determine the relapse of abdominal cancers, which has had beneficial results.
