OBJECTIVE Despite correlation between the completeness of surgical cytoreduction and survival for patients with advanced ovarian cancer, relatively few undergo complete cytoreduction. This study was initiated to prospectively determine the ability to surgically eliminate all visible disease in patients with stage IIIC and IV epithelial ovarian cancer and the associated impact on survival. METHODS Between 1990 and 1996, 163 consecutive patients underwent primary cytoreduction. The goal was the… CONTINUE READING
