Abstract

n 6.2% of gynaecologic malignancies, vascular involvement is reported. Cytoreductive surgery presents in those cases a higher rate of major complications. Arterial-enteric fistula is a very rare post-surgical complication with serious repercussions on the patient's life due to intestinal haemorrhage and the overlapping sepsis. This is the first case report about iliac-colonic fistula formation in recurrent ovarian cancer with lymph-node metastasis after laparoscopic secondary cytoreductive surgery in a 75-year-old woman and its successful surgical management. A literature review about arterial-enteric fistula formation in gynaecologic cancer treatment, specifically ovarian cancer, is also reported, hypothesising the risk factors of this severe postoperative complication and possible surgical solutions.
