Malignant bowel obstruction caused by peritoneal carcinomatosis is a common complication that affects a large proportion of gastrointestinal and ovarian oncology patients and predicts poor longterm survival. The management strategy for these patients includes a variety of medical therapies and surgical options; however, how to choose the best treatment strategy remains a mystery. The purpose of this narrative review was to summarize the most recent evidence on multimodal malignant bowel obstruction treatment and determine whether or not progress had been made. We should work to establish consensus guidelines, where possible, to ensure that this unique patient group receives the appropriate treatment or compassionate care during this often terminal event.
