OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine whether there is a possible difference in patient survival (1) between node-positive and node-negative groups for Stage I, II, IIIA+B, and IIIC disease and (2) between node-positive Stage I through IIIB disease and Stage IIIC disease. METHODS Medical records of 125 patients with Stage I, II, and III epithelial ovarian cancer were retrospectively analyzed for clinical and histological characteristics with special reference to node-positive or… CONTINUE READING
