Survival was evaluated in 455 patients with FIGO stage III invasive ovarian cancer managed between 1983 and 1991. Median follow-up was 73 months. The prognostic significance of clinical and histopathological variables was evaluated. In Cox multivariate analysis, FIGO substage was an independent prognostic factor with a relative hazard (RH) of 1.2 and 1.7 for substage IIIB and IIIC, respectively (P = 0.013). Size of residual disease after surgery was a stronger factor with an RH of 1.2 and 2.4… CONTINUE READING
