One must remember that these patients had large and prolonged surgical procedures prior to the beginning of the cisplatin lavage. Only a single patient suffered renal toxicities. This was high-output renal failure that was clinically evident for 10 days.

Also, levels of cisplatin in other normal tissues, such as the pancreas and kidney, and additional samples of liver need to be obtained.
