BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer tends to be chemosensitive and confine itself to the surface of the peritoneal cavity for much of its natural history. These features have made it an obvious target for intraperitoneal chemotherapy. Chemotherapy for ovarian cancer is usually given as an intravenous infusion repeatedly over 5 to 8 cycles. Intraperitoneal(More)
The relative incidence of primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPCa) and advanced (FIGO stage III or IV) ovarian serous carcinoma (AOSCa) was assessed over 5 years at a UK cancer center, and the sociodemographic, clinical, and survival data were compared. There were 23 women with PPCa and 55 with AOSCa. The ratio of PPCa:AOSCa was higher than previously reported.(More)
Primary fallopian tube carcinoma (PFTC) is rare but may be under-diagnosed. We have analysed the incidence, clinical findings and outcome in patients with PFTC at the RUH Gynaecological Cancer Centre in Bath between 1999 and 2004, and compared the incidence with that of advanced ovarian carcinoma (OC). Eight patients had PFTC, seven of whom were diagnosed(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to summarize the evidence for interventions aiming at enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) in ovarian cancer through a systematic review. METHODS We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and The Cochrane Library for studies testing ERAS interventions in patients undergoing surgery for ovarian cancer. Study selection and data extraction were(More)
OBJECTIVE Erosive lichen planus (LP) and differentiated vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (dVIN) may display overlapping histopathologic features. MATERIALS AND METHODS We searched the local pathology database for vulvar biopsies reported as dVIN or erosive vulvitis during 2011 to 2013 inclusive. After review of patient notes and slides, there were 5 cases(More)
Current international guidelines recommend routine hysterectomy in the initial surgical management of epithelial ovarian cancer. However, there seems to be limited evidence to support these recommendations. We examined the data for a series of women undergoing hysterectomy as part of surgical management of ovarian cancer. Most of the women who underwent(More)
