Is perioperative visual estimation of intra-abdominal tumor spread reliable in ovarian cancer surgery after neoadjuvant chemotherapy?



ScienceDirect.com - Gynecologic Oncology - Is perioperative visual estimation of intra-abdominal tumor spread reliable in ovarian cancer surgery after neoadjuvant chemotherapy?

Highlights

► Visual estimation of tumor spread in advanced epithelial ovarian cancer is impaired by the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy
► This may lead to leaving microscopic residual tumor in the patient in interval debulking surgery
► This hypothesis should be tested in prospective studies specifically designed to address this issue
