Abstract

Background: Colorectal cancer stands as one of the most prevalent malignant tumors affecting the digestive tract, posing a significant threat to human health. Its incidence and fatality rates rank third and second, respectively, among malignant tumors. This study seeks to analyze the efficacy of combining fluorouracil intraperitoneal perfusion chemotherapy with intravenous chemotherapy in patients following radical resection of colorectal cancer. Methods: This retrospective study analyzed the medical records of 65 patients who underwent radical resection of colorectal cancer at the Affiliated Hospital of Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine from January 2011 to January 2013. These patients were divided into two groups based on their treatment methods: the control group (CG, n = 31, receiving intravenous chemotherapy) and the observation group (OG, n = 32, receiving fluorouracil intraperitoneal perfusion chemotherapy + intravenous chemotherapy). After 6 cycles of treatment, the study compared clinical symptoms, Karnofsky score, body weight, adverse reactions, local recurrence, and liver metastasis between the two groups. Results: The OG demonstrated superior efficacy in controlling recurrence and metastasis compared to the CG (p < 0.05). However, there were no significant differences observed in clinical symptoms, quality of life, body weight, and drug safety between the two groups (p > 0.05). Conclusion: Intraperitoneal infusion chemotherapy with fluorouracil significantly impacts the control of recurrence and metastasis following radical resection of colorectal cancer. It also offers valuable references for developing clinical treatment protocols for these patients.
