Preoperative hyponatremia (sodium) in women with ovarian cancer: An additional cause for concern?



 Hyponatremia - Mayo Clinic
www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hyponatremia/basics/.../con-20031445
Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the level of sodium in your blood is abnormally low. Sodium is an electrolyte, and it helps regulate the amount of water that's in and around your cells.

abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To determine if preoperative hyponatremia in women with ovarian, fallopian tube (FT), and primary peritoneal cancers (PPC) is associated with postoperative complications.

CONCLUSIONS:

Hyponatremia is associated with postoperative 30day mortality and morbidity in women with ovarian, FT, and PPC. Serum sodium in conjunction with other markers may have the potential to identify candidates for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Additional work is needed to determine if correction of hyponatremia in the preoperative period alters outcomes.
