Palliative sclerosis of intra-abdominal cystic ovarian or peritoneal carcinoma.

Abstract

Three patients with platinum- and paclitaxel-resistant predominantly cystic intra-abdominal recurrences of ovarian or peritoneal carcinoma were treated with CT-guided percutaneous catheter drainage and subsequent sclerosis. This relieved colonic or ureteral obstruction and provided significant relief from symptoms. In one case repeated sclerosis was performed. Sclerosis of cystic recurrences may provide additional palliation.
