Prolonged survival after laparoscopic splenectomy for recurrent ovarian cancer and no adjuvant therapy: a report and review of the literature
Keywords: splenectomy, laparoscopy
AbstractIsolated splenic recurrent ovarian cancer is uncommon and may present remotely from initial surgery and chemotherapy. Surgical excision remains the treatment of choice for this condition. While widely used, the role of adjuvant therapy in this situation is unclear. We present a case of isolated recurrent splenic ovarian cancer treated with surgery and no adjuvant therapy, and review the literature on management of this condition.
