PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Peritoneum Removal

This is not a comment on the content of the study. It is rather a comment on the extent to which said study is performed. Is it possible that the peritoneum would be cut out with the tumor in order to make clear margins. If so, could the regeneration cells around it be damaged so much by surgery and possibly radiation and/or chemotherapy wafers or IV therapy to the point where the missing peritoneum could not regenerate itself. If revision is possible for this article, I would suggest including this in the background or conclusion.
