Ovarian carcinogenesis, invasion, and metastatic. Abstract: Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is a common malignant disease, which remains asymptomatic for a prolonged period of time and is usually diagnosed at advanced stages. Cytoreductive surgery is a backbone of EOC treatment.
Wherever possible, EOC patients are subjected to primary debulking surgery (PDS) with the aim to remove all visible tumor lumps. The presence of ascites is one of the general ovarian cancer (OC) symptoms detected at initial diagnosis and can be present at an early stage but is most often seen in advanced disease.
In newly diagnosed OC patients, ascites is treated by the standard treatment for the underlying disease. However, once the chemoresistant and recurrent features of the disease develop, management of a.
