Peritoneal seeding was shown to occur in as many as 28% of patients L. Ludeman and N. A. Shepherd [29] because of the shedding of cancer cells into the peritoneal cavity even in patients with no demonstrable metastatic disease [30]. There is a place, therefore, for intra-operative peritoneal lavage to identify IPTC [31, 32] as positive cytology will result in a poorer prognosis of at least one stage or more. The risk of positive cytology is directly related to the stage of the primary tumour: the percentage of positive cytology is in the order of 10–20% in patients with pT3 and pT4 tumours and increases proportionally to the increase of the area of serosal involvement by the primary tumour [33].
