Abstract OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic surgery in patients with early ovarian cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 05-1996 and 06-2003, 24 patients with ovarian cancer FIGO stage IA-B underwent either primary treatment or completion of staging by laparoscopy. Laparoscopic staging was performed according to the FIGO guidelines, which entails one-sided oophorectomy or bilateral salpingo-ophorectomy with laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy, infrarenal para-aortic lymphadenectomy, complete resection of the infundibulo-pelvic ligament, appendectomy and partial omentectomy. RESULTS: Eleven out of 24 patients (45.8\%) underwent completion of staging after a mean of 12 days (range 4-21) after primary surgery, while 13 patients out of 24 (54.2\%) underwent primary laparoscopic management of an adnexal mass, diagnosed as ovarian cancer by frozen section. Mean operative time was 166 min (range 118-206) for completion of staging and 182 min (range 141-246) for primary surgery. No major intraoperative complication occurred. One out of 24 patients (4.1\%) developed chylos ascites postoperatively, which was managed conservatively. Five out of 24 patients (20.8\%) received adjuvant chemotherapy after a median time of 7 days (mean 5-14) following surgery. No trocar metastasis occurred. Median follow-up is 46.4 months (range 2-72). Two out of 24 patients (8.3\%) developed recurrence, which was treated with resurgery and chemotherapy. After a median follow-up of 46 months, disease-free survival is 91.6\% and overall survival 100\%. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic management of early ovarian cancer is safe and effective and survival outcome seems acceptable.
