Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) is one of the final stages of abdominal cancers. Nowadays Cytoreductive Surgery followed by Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) proves to be a promising therapeutic solution. The authors are developing an HIPEC equipment and this paper presents an advanced cytostatic solution temperature control structure. A cascade plus feedforward control structure is proposed in order to compensate the major temperature disturbances: the temperature loss due to
