BACKGROUND: To analyze the impact of radical cytoreductive surgery-as part of primary tumor debulking-on the amount of residual tumor and survival in patients with advanced ovarian cancer and to evaluate the prognostic significance of no gross residual disease (RD) after surgery.

METHODS: Medical records of 203 patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage IIIC-IV ovarian cancer were reviewed. All patients underwent primary cytoreductive surgery followed by taxane- and platinum-based chemotherapy. Various clinicopathologic characteristics were collected.

RESULTS: Of 203 patients, 119 patients underwent simple surgery, while radical surgery was performed in 84 patients. Advanced age (hazard ratio [HR] 1.04, 95 % confidence interval [CI] 1.02-1.06, P < 0.01), FIGO stage IV disease (HR 3.61, 95 % CI 1.48-8.83, P < 0.01), and grossly visible RD (HR 3.24, 95 % CI 1.90-5.53, P < 0.01) were identified as significant factors associated with poor prognosis in the entire cohort of 203 patients. Radical surgery (HR 0.56, 95 % CI 0.37-0.87, P = 0.01) was associated with improved survival. In the subgroup of patients with stage IIIC disease with peritoneal carcinomatosis, independent prognostic factors were advanced age (HR 1.04, 95 % CI 1.01-1.06, P = 0.01), radical surgery (HR 0.58, 95 % CI 0.35-0.96, P = 0.03), and grossly visible RD (HR 2.86, 95 % CI 1.55-5.30, P 1.0 cm (37 months) (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSIONS: No gross RD is associated with improved overall survival, and radical surgery was effective for achieving no gross RD.
