Abstract

Aim:

To evaluate the mortality and morbidity related to bowel resection in women with advanced ovarian carcinoma.

Methods:

Retrospective case series of 47 women with stage III and IV carcinoma ovary who underwent bowel resection, over the period of 5 years from Jan 2011 to Dec 2015. The disease free survival was assessed and the prognostic factors for disease free survival was also analysed by bivariate analysis.

Results:

In this cohort 64% (30/47) had primary debulking, 21% (10/47) had interval debulking and 15% (7/47) had secondary debulking. The mean period of follow up was 23 months (1 – 45 month). The mortality was 15% (7/47), while major morbidity like anastomotic leak were nil. The three variables considered for mortality were relaparotomy, paralytic ileus and surgical site infection. 6% (3/47) had relaparotomy, 21% (10/47) had paralytic iileus and 15% (7/47) had surgical site infection. The overall morbidity was 42.5% (20/47). A total 34% (16/47) of patients had stoma. 79% (37/47) patients had optimal debulking.

Conclusion:

Bowel resection in optimally selected cases of advanced carcinoma ovary is a good option with limited mortality and morbidity. Often, bowel resection is the only way to achieve optimal debulking.
