Abstract

The initial postoperative treatment of 31 patients with stage I-II ovarian cancer of epithelial origin, consisted of abdominopelvic radiotherapy. The 5-year survival was significantly better in stage I as compared to stage II (81.1% vs 36.3%). There was a consistent trend in both stages for better outcome in grades 1-2. This trend, however, reached statistical significance only for PFI. Most of the patients with recurrent disease had grade 3 tumors. While satisfactory treatment results may be achieved with postoperative radiotherapy for stage I-II tumors which are well or moderately differentiated, it is not recommended for undifferentiated tumors.
