Quinary debulking for epithelial ovarian cancer.

Published online

Journal Article

We report a case of optimal quinary debulking for recurrent papillary serous carcinoma of the ovary involving the liver parenchyma through the full thickness of the diaphragm into the lung parenchyma. Multiple debulking procedures for ovarian cancer are controversial, especially when there is extensive upper abdominal or thoracic disease. Selection criteria for such extensive surgery include: good functional status, long disease-free interval, and absence of other systemic disease. Our patient tolerated her procedure well without evidence of residual disease over 6 months postoperatively.
