Second-look operation for epithelial ovarian cancer: Laparoscopy or laparotomy?
Lymph Node Excision
Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
Laparoscopy may be an acceptable alternative to second-look laparotomy for interval evaluation of epithelial ovarian cancer. Second-look laparoscopy probably results in less morbidity, shorter operating time, shorter hospital stay, and lower total hospital charges. These results require confirmation in a randomized clinical trial.
