Systemic Perfusion Hyperthermia

All hyperthermia methods involve the transfer of heat into the body from an external heat source . While heat absorption from these sources results in a highly non-uniform distribution of the thermal energy, the Systemic Perfusion Hyperthermia method used at Angeles Hospital, allows the phycisians to control the exact goal temperature, and quickly results in a uniform temperature distribution throughout the whole body.

Indeed, systemic hyperthermia is the only way to achieve uniform heating of tissues due to the ability to control physiological mechanisms of thermoregulation , such as sweating, vasodilation counteracting attempts to increase body temperature.

In Systemic Perfusion Hyperthermia technique, blood is extracted in a constant flow and heated up to 42oC  by the Systemic Perfusion System.

Before returning to the body, the hyper-heated blood passes through a detoxification filter to cleanse it of toxins and cellular debris.

Throughout the procedure the patient is monitored by trained staff and by the Systemic Perfusion Hyperthermia System at all times.

 

Hyperthermia effects on Cancer

The principle is that cancer cells react more sensitively to the effects of excessive heat than normal cells. Also, tumors have an impaired ability to adapt their blood circulation to the effects of high temperatures and thus hyperthermia can cause a reduction of blood flow to a tumor. In addition, heat at this level pushes cancer cells toward acidosis (decreased cellular pH) which decreases the cells´ viability and ability to spread. It also activates the immune system, causing both increased production of interferon alpha, and increased immune surveillance.

Tumor masses tend to have oxygen deprived (hypoxic) cells within the inner part of the tumor.
