  • Age at diagnosis, an elevated preoperative CA-125, invasive implants, and micropapillary histology were clinical factors associated with increased risk of recurrence in women with BOT. Including these clinicopathologic features will likely identify patients at higher risk for recurrence, for whom development of new treatment strategies would be appropriate.
