Exception to this consensus regarding structures to be removed are the right colon and adjacent ileocolic lymph nodes. METHODS: From a prospectively maintained database, all patients with a histologic diagnosis of peritoneal mucinous carcinoma (PMCA) who underwent complete cytoreductive surgery were assessed for the presence versus absence of adenocarcinoma in lymph nodes within the appendiceal mesentery and/or in the lymph nodes of the ileocolic group...
