Abstract

Upper abdominal spread of primary and recurrent ovarian cancer is often considered to be a major obstacle to achieve optimal residual disease at the end of surgery. In this study, we investigate the role of diaphragmatic debulking in the natural history of advanced and recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer patients, and the morbidity of this procedure according to clinico-surgical characteristics.
