Abstract

Aims and Objectives:

This study is done to assess the accuracy of intraoperative frozen section in the diagnosis of various categories of ovarian neoplasm conducted in RGCI.

Materials and Methods:

Introperative frozen sections for suspected ovarian neoplasm that underwent surgery as primary line of therapy at this institution were analyzed retrospectively from Jan. 2014 - Dec. 2015. The results of frozen section were compared with the final histopathologic diagnosis on paraffin sections and the overall accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were determined.

Results:

The study included 159 cases and the mean age of patients was 44.72 ± 14.28 years (Range 19-75 years). The mean size of tumor was 12.5 ± 5.9 cm. Sensitivity of frozen section for benign, borderline and malignant tumors was 98.53%, 73.33% and 94.74% respectively. And the related specificities were 95.60%, 96.53% and 100% respectively. There were 150 concordant cases and 9 discordant cases. Overall diagnostic accuracy of frozen section was 94.33%.

Conclusion:

Intraoperative frozen section diagnosis appears to be an accurate and comparable technique for the histopathology diagnosis of ovarian tumours. It is a valuable tool to guide the surgical management of these patients.
