OBJECTIVE: The majority of advanced ovarian cancer patients have peritoneal carcinomatosis involving from the pelvis to upper abdomen, which is a major obstacle to optimal cytoreduction. Since total parietal peritonectomy was introduced for treating peritoneal carcinomatosis from colorectal cancer [3], similar surgical techniques including pelvic peritonectomy have been applied in advanced ovarian cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis [1], and these can increase the rate of complete cytoreduction up to 60% [2]. However, there are few reports on total parietal peritonectomy for ovarian cancer patients. In this surgical film, we showed total parietal peritonectomy with en bloc pelvic resection for treating advanced ovarian cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis. METHODS: A 43years-old woman was diagnosed with high-grade serous carcinoma of the ovary after right adnexectomy. Computed tomography demonstrated subdiaphragmatic involvements, omental cake, lymph node metastases and huge pelvic mass infiltrating the uterus, cul-de-sac, and pelvic peritoneum. Primary debulking surgery was considered because of a high likelihood for complete cytoreduction. RESULTS: First, the whole abdomen and pelvis were adequately exposed and the visceral organs thoroughly mobilized. Then, the parietal peritoneum was dissected from the subdiaphragmatic, paracolic and pelvic areas. Tumor-infiltrated visceral organs such as the uterus, adnexae, rectosigmoid colon and cul-de-sac were resected en bloc with the parietal peritoneum (Fig. 1). CONCLUSIONS: Total parietal peritonecotmy with en bloc pelvic resection is a feasible procedure for removing peritoneal metastasis in advanced ovarian cancer patients, which contributes to optimal cytoreduction improving prognosis.
