open access: Predictors of mortality within 1 year after primary ovarian cancer surgery: a nationwide cohort study



open access

 Conclusions
In this study, we aimed to examine predictors of mortality within 0–180 and 181–360 days after ovarian cancer surgery. The examined predictors were age, ASA score, BMI, FIGO stage, residual tumour tissue after surgery, perioperative blood transfusion and calendar year of surgery. The overall 1-year survival was 84%. The most important predictors of mortality within 1 year after surgery were residual tumour tissue (0–180 days after surgery) and advanced FIGO stage (181–360 days after surgery). Our results suggest that the surgeon should aim at radical surgery. However, comorbidity, being underweight, age >64 years and blood transfusion were also significant predictors of mortality and need to be studied in more detail.
