Anthony B. Costales, MD, of the Baylor College of Medicine, discusses results from the MIID-SOC trial, which explored the question of whether laparoscopic surgery for removal of ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer following neoadjuvant chemotherapy is feasible, safe, and provides similar outcomes as open surgery.

Alice P. Barr, MD, of the Carolinas Medical Center and Levine Cancer Institute, discusses results from a retrospective study, which showed that progression-free and overall survival appeared to be no different with open surgery and minimally invasive surgery for interval debulking after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in women with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. Perioperative outcomes also seemed to be superior with minimally invasive surgery (ID #10209).

Laura Chambers, DO, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses data showing that combining paclitaxel and cisplatin vs cisplatin alone with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy at interval debulking surgery improved progression-free survival. There was no difference in postoperative complications, length of stay, or time to chemotherapy, but admission to intensive care units did increase.
