Radical en bloc peritonectomy in advanced ovarian cancer

In order to reach cytoreduction in advanced ovarian cancer, peritonectomy and diaphragmatic stripping are procedures required to remove the disease in the upper abdomen. Diaphragm involvement is estimated in up to 40% of cases. Nevertheless, in some of these patients, the tumour volume may constitute a limitation of the technique due to the association with abdominal wall involvement, bulky tumour at the Morrison’s pouch or liver infiltration. Extensive upper abdominal procedures should represent a basic resource for the gynaecologic oncologist in order to reach an optimal cytoreduction. A radical peritonectomy with en bloc resection for treating advanced ovarian cancer with extensive widespread diaphragmatic peritoneal carcinomatosis is showed in this surgical film.

Keywords: Advanced ovarian cancer, debulking surgery, radical peritonectomy
