Abstract

Eighteen women with bulky ovarian cancer at the start of chemotherapy were brought to second laparotomy after 6 months of combination chemotherapy in an effort to resect previously unresectable tumor masses. Only one of 18 had significant resection of bulk tumor such that no gross tumor was remaining, although 8 of 15 had the residual uterus removed and 6 of 10 had resection of residual ovary or ovaries. Failure to resect tumor was due to absence of any gross tumor (33%), presence of myriad small seedlings not amenable to resection (22%), or massive residual tumor (18%). Partial resection was accomplished in 22%, but all relapsed promptly in spite of continued aggressive therapy with drugs and whole abdominal irradiation. It is concluded that 6‐month “second‐effort” surgical resection is unlikely to benefit many women with bulky ovarian cancer, and that surgical resection must be attempted early in the course of the disease if it is to be effective.
