abstract

  • In the authors' analysis of secondary cytoreduction for recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer, a significant survival benefit was demonstrated for residual disease that measured < or = 0.5 cm. The disease-free interval and the number of recurrence sites should be used as selection criteria for offering secondary cytoreduction.
