Incidence and Survival of Gynecologic Sarcomas in England

Gynecologic sarcoma incidence rates have varied little since 1993, whereas survival has improved significantly, and these results are consistent with previously published small series and case studies, and provide a more complete picture of gynecologic Sarcomas incidence and survival patterns in England.

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy or primary surgery in stage IIIC or IV ovarian cancer.

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval debulking surgery was not inferior to primary debulked surgery followed by chemotherapy as a treatment option for patients with bulky stage IIIC or IV ovarian carcinoma in this study.
