  • To identify the optimal candidates for TCS, the predictive value of ascites and peritoneal carcinomatosis should be confirmed by future prospective trials. (uptodate.com)
  • Multivariate analysis identified platinum resistance, tumor residuals at secondary surgery, and peritoneal carcinomatosis to be of predictive significance for complete tumor resection, while tumor residuals at secondary and tertiary surgery, decreasing interval to second relapse, ascites, upper abdominal tumor involvement, and nonplatinum third-line chemotherapy significantly affected OS.
