AbstractTo evaluate percutaneous ultrasound-guided day-case mucin aspiration in advanced pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) using a wide-bore drain with regards to its safety and efficacy. All patients who underwent percutaneous mucin aspiration for PMP between 2019-2021 at a single national peritoneal tumour service were included in this study. Under local anaesthesia, a suction-enabled 28-32 F catheter was used for drainage following wire-guided track dilatation. The volume drained and difference in abdominal girth pre- and post-procedure were measured. Patients graded difficulty in breathing and abdominal discomfort pre- and post-procedure. Histology reports were reviewed. Sixteen patients received 56 percutaneous mucin aspirations between 2019-2021. The aetiology was a low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (LAMN) in 50% of patients. The mean amount of mucin drained was 7,320 ± 3,000ml (range 300-13,500 ml). The mean reduction in abdominal girth post-procedure was 12.2 ± 5 cm (range 0-27 cm). Only grade 1 complications were observed. Percutaneous ultrasound-guided day-case aspiration of mucin for advanced and recurrent PMP using a wide-bore drain is a safe and effective procedure. It may be used in the palliative setting or as a bridge to surgery in the very symptomatic patient or if there is a reversible contraindication to surgery. [Abstract copyright: Copyright © 2023.
