Experimental: Surgical Debulking and Intrathoracic Hyperthermic Chemotherapy
Patients in this trial will undergo surgical debulking followed by intrathoracic hyperthermic chemotherapy perfusion.
Procedure: Surgical debulking and Intrathoracic Hyperthermic Chemotherapy
Surgical debulking of intrathoracic metastases will be performed, followed by perfusion of the chest with heated Cisplatin for 60 minutes.
- Time to disease progression [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Most cancers that have spread to the chest cavity have limited survival. Response to systemic chemotherapy and radiation therapy is short-lived. This end point will determine the time to disease progression of this experimental treatment modality.
- Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Most cancers that have spread to the chest cavity have limited survival. Response to systemic chemotherapy and radiation therapy is short-lived. This end point will determine the overall survival period following treatment with this experimental modality.
- Systemic drug absorption [ Time Frame: 1 month ]By perfusing the chest cavity with chemotherapy, higher doses can be safely administered as less drug is absorbed systemically and therefore toxicity should be lower. This end point will assess drug toxicity due to intrathoracic perfusion.
- Complications [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Patients will undergo surgical debulking prior to intrathoracic chemotherapy perfusion. Complications from the surgery as well as inhibited wound healing from chemotherapy will be monitored as a secondary end point.
