  20. 20. Surgery¨ Staging laparotomy with Maximum cytoreduction:¨ By gynecologic oncologist¨ Indications: operable stages I through IV ¤ aspiration of ascites or peritoneal lavage ¤ All peritoneal surfaces should be visualized, ¤ any peritoneal surface or adhesion suspicious should be excised or biopsied ¤ TH/BSO n USO with uterine preservation but with full staging laparotomy n Preserve fertility in young women n Indications: n stage I tumors and/or n low-risk tumors (early-stage invasive tumors, or LMP) ¤ Omentectomy ¤ Lymphadenectomy: ↑ DFS but not OS n Aortic n pelvic

ACCEPTABLE RECURRENCE THERAPIES Preferred Agents Other Agents¨ Cytotoxic Therapy ¨ Cytotoxic Therapy ¤ Combination if platinum sensitive ¤ Altretamine n Carboplatin/paclitaxel (category 1) ¤ Capecitabine n Carboplatin/docetaxel ¤ Cyclophosphamide, Ifosfamide n Carboplatin/gemcitabine ¤ Irinotecan n Cisplatin/gemcitabine ¤ Melphalan n Carboplatin/weekly paclitaxel ¤ Oxaliplatin n Carboplatin/liposomal doxorubicin ¤ Paclitaxel ¤ Single-agent if platinum sensitive ¤ Vinorelbine Carboplatin, Cisplatin, oxaliplatin n ¨ Hormonal Therapy: ¤ Single-agent non-platinum based if ¤ Anastrozole , Letrozole platinum resistant ¤ Tamoxifen n Docetaxel, Paclitaxel, weekly n Etoposide, oral Gemcitabine ¤ Megestrol acetate n Liposomal doxorubicin ¤ Leuprolide n Pemetrexed Topotecan ¨ Palliative localized radiation therapy¨ Targeted Therapy: Bevacizumab
  47. 47. Notes¨ primarily progress on two consecutive regimens without evidence of clinical benefits have diminished likelihood of benefiting from additional therapy. Decisions to offer supportive care, additional therapy, or clinical trials should be made on a highly individual basis.¨ Platinum-based combination therapy should be considered for platinum-sensitive recurrences.¨ Combination therapy with bevacizumab may be considered.
  48. 48. Optimal chemotherapy of recurrent ovarian cancer:Metanalysis of 13 trialsFung-Kee-Fung et al Curr Oncol 2007;14(5):195-208.¨ In five of the thirteen trials in which 100% of patients were considered sensitive to platinum-containing chemotherapy, further platinum-based combination chemotherapy significantly improved response rates (two trials), progression-free survival (four trials), and overall survival (three trials) when compared with single-agent chemotherapy involving carboplatin or paclitaxel. Only two of these randomized trials compared the same chemotherapy regimens: carboplatin alone versus the combination of carboplatin and paclitaxel. Both trials were consistent in reporting improved survival outcomes with the combination of carboplatin and paclitaxel. In one trial, the combination of carboplatin and gemcitabine resulted in significantly higher response rates and improved progression-free survival when compared with carboplatin alone. Median survival with carboplatin alone ranged from 17 months to 24 months in four trials.
  49. 49. Optimal chemotherapy of recurrent ovarian cancer:Metanalysis of 13 trialsFung-Kee-Fung et al Curr Oncol 2007;14(5):195-208.¨ 5 trials in chemosensitive disease: significant ¤↑ RR in 2 trials ¤ ↑ PFS in 4 trials ¤ ↑ OS in 3 trials¨ If combination platinum-based chemotherapy is not indicated, then a single platinum agent should be considered.
  50. 50. Optimal chemotherapy of recurrent ovarian cancer:Metanalysis of 13 trialsFung-Kee-Fung et al Curr Oncol 2007;14(5):195-208.¨ Platinum-refractory or platinum-resistant disease: ¤ Monotherapy should be considered because no advantage appears to accrue to the use of non-platinum-containing combination chemotherapy. ¤ Single-agent paclitaxel, topotecan, or pegylated liposomal doxorubicin have demonstrated activity in this patient population and are reasonable treatment options. ¤ No evidence either supports or refutes the use of more than one line of chemotherapy. ¤ Many treatment options have shown modest response rates, but their benefits over best supportive care have not been studied in clinical trials
  51. 51. Borderline Epithelial Ovarian Cancer¨ primary epithelial ovarian lesion with cytological characteristics suggesting malignancy, but without frank invasion¨ clinically indolent course and good prognosis.¨ Five-year survivals exceed 80%.¨ peritoneal implants characterises OC
  52. 52. Borderline Epithelial Ovarian Cancer¨ Treatment: ¤ Surgery as OC ¤ With peitoneal implants: n Non-invasive: observation n Invasive: observation or chemotherapy
  53. 53. Less Common Ovarian Histopathologies¨ germ cell neoplasms,¨ carcinosarcoma (MMMT), and¨ ovarian stromal tumors.¨ Early stage¨ Fertility preservation¨ Tumor markers: CA125, inhibin, AFP, BHCG
  54. 54. Germ Cell Tumors¨ Young age <35 y¨ Surgery: extensive or conservative¨ Post surgery: ¤ Observation in stage I dysgerminoma or immature teratoma ¤ Chemo (3-4 PEB): n embryonal or endodermal sinus tumors; n stages II-IV dysgerminoma or immature teratoma
