Abstract

BackgroundThe aims of this retrospective study were to evaluate laparoscopic triage of patients with advanced ovarian cancer towards primary surgery or neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and to analyze outcome according to the treatment.

MethodsBetween January 2001 and December 2006, 55 patients with stage III – IV ovarian cancer underwent diagnostic laparoscopy. Primary surgery was performed when complete cytoreduction was considered feasible, while the other patients received neoadjuvant chemotherapy platinum-based combination with taxanes and interval surgery. All the patients received adjuvant chemotherapy.

ResultsPatients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy n = 29 had a higher mean body mass index P = 0.048, higher serum CA 125 levels P = 0.026, and more metastases P = 0.045 than patients treated with primary surgery n = 26. In patients treated with primary surgery, complete cytoreduction and a residual tumour size ≤ 2 cm were obtained in respectively 54% and 77% of cases. Complete cytoreduction was achieved in respectively 100% and 33% of cases when primary surgery was performed by an oncologic gynaecologist and by a non-oncologic gynaecologist P = 0.002. Interval surgery yielded complete cytoreduction and a residual tumour size ≤ 2 cm in respectively 73% and 85% of cases. With a median follow-up of 24 months range 7 – 78 months, the survival rates after primary surgery and interval surgery were 61% and 66% respectively.

ConclusionDiagnostic laparoscopy is useful for identifying patients with stage III-IV ovarian cancer who qualify for primary cytoreduction. Surgeon experience was a determining factor for the success of complete cytoreduction.
