FUENTES Q, Francisco et al. Aspectos anatómicos y técnicos de la cirugia de citorredución de cáncer de ovario en abdomen superior. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2018, vol.83, n.1, pp.62-79. ISSN 0048-766X.

Epithelial Ovarian cancer is the ninth most frequent cancer in women and the most lethal gynecologic malignancy in developed countries. The majority of patients are diagnosed in advanced stage of the disease due to the lack of specific symptoms. Surgery and systemic treatment play a key role in the treatment of this disease. For those patients with advanced stage at the time of diagnosis (III - IV), removal of all macroscopic disease (optimal cytoreduction) has been shown as the most important prognostic factor, demonstrating improvement not only in progression free survival but also in overall survival. Our aim is to describe, in a multidisciplinary fashion, the most relevant aspect about oncological debulking procedures in the upper abdominal cavity for women with gynecological malignancies.

Keywords : Epithelial Ovarian Cancer; Debulking of the Superior Abdomen; Abdominal Cavity.
