Abstract

The perioperative period remains the source of an unacceptably low proportion of oncology research, even though surgery is the curative treatment of many solid primary tumours. Study of the surgical technique is important, but other interventions, such as anaesthetic and analgesic techniques, must also be considered. Indeed, it now appears clear that some perioperative events are associated with a higher risk of postoperative accelerated tumour growth (mostly during the first 2 postoperative yrs).1 This is not surprising as cancers are linked to inflammatory processes, and these are always present during metastatic dissemination.
