Alvimopan in Supporting Gastrointestinal Recovery in Patients Undergoing Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy
This phase II trial studies how well alvimopan works in supporting gastrointestinal recovery in patients undergoing surgery to remove as many tumor cells from the affected area as possible (cytoreductive surgery) and infusion of a heated chemotherapy solution that circulates into the abdominal cavity (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy). Alvimopan may help decrease the time to return to normal bowel function after surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
