Özet

Background Recent data has shown that the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) significantly reduces tumor burden before optimal cytoreductive surgery (CS) and is associated with an improved overall survival (OS). The aim of our study was to evaluate response to treatment and survival of patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who received NAC followed by interval cytoreductive surgery (ICS).
