OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of tertiary cytoreduction (TCR) on survival and to determine prognostic factors which may influence surgical and survival outcome. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-three consecutive patients who had recurrent platinum-sensitive epithelial ovarian cancer and underwent TCR between January 1999 and January 2011 were evaluated. Factors which impact on TCR outcome and survival were determined by statistical analysis. RESULTS TCR was optimal (< 1cm residual tumor) in 15 of… CONTINUE READING
