Preoperative serum CA-125 levels and risk of suboptimal cytoreduction in ovarian cancer: a meta-analysis.


BACKGROUND This meta-analysis was designed to determine the ability of pretreatment CA-125 level to predict optimal cytoreduction in advanced ovarian cancer (OC). METHODS Through literature search, 14 studies were identified. In addition, we retrospectively reviewed the data of 154 patients with OC. Using the bi-variate model, diagnostic performance of CA… (More)
