Pressurised intraperitoneal aerosolised chemotherapy (PIPAC) is a new, mostly supportive approach to help patients with advanced peritoneal metastasis to increase the lifespan. It carries occupational hazards to health-care workers and especially anaesthesiologist during the procedure. The aerosolised chemotherapy can also cause chemical peritonitis and organ dysfunction in the perioperative period. In this case report, we present the report of two cases and discuss the perioperative concerns and management related to PIPAC.
