About our charity funds
The Peritoneal Malignancy Institute (PMI) has two charity funds which sit within the main Hampshire Hospitals Charity; the PMI research fund and the C2 ward fund. The research fund is used for conferences, training and further research into Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. The ward fund is used to purchase equipment for C2 as well improve facilities within the accommodation.
The Peritoneal Malignancy Institute have secured a Stryker PINPOINT system to aid laparoscopic and open surgery. The equipment, which will benefit patients undergoing surgery, uses Near Infra-red (NIR) fluorescence and Indocyanine Green (ICG) to help see tissues and peritoneal disease better and allows surgeons to check vascularisation to ensure safer surgeries. The PINPOINT system uses HD imaging to allow safe and accurate dissection to take place.
Using money from generous charitable donations the team have been able to purchase two systems which means that the equipment can be used in two surgical theatres at the same time.
