Epithelial ovarian carcinoma rarely occurs because of a single event. Therefore, no single biological tumor factor will give accurate prognostic information for all ovarian cancer patients. On the other hand, a combination of two or more independent factors may yield an improved overall prognostic index. Because FIGO stage is included in most of the previously presented models, inaccurate surgical staging in patients with apparently early disease has been a problem. In a series of 226 patients… CONTINUE READING
