Three cycles of chemotherapy followed by primary cytoreductive surgery for unresectable ovarian cancer

, : Three cycles of chemotherapy followed by primary cytoreductive surgery for unresectable ovarian cancer. Gynecologic Oncology 43(3): 313-316

Definitive primary cytoreductive surgery was achieved at second laparotomy after three cycles of combination chemotherapy (cisplatin and cyclophosphamide) in three patients who presented with unresectable disease at our Ovarian Tumor Unit. The ovarian cancer was inoperable at the first laparotomy and no surgical procedure was performed other than biopsy of malignant tumor to confirm the diagnosis. Following interventional surgical cytoreduction the patients were given a further six courses of combination chemotherapy and then maintained for a further six cycles on oral chlorambucil. Two patients are disease free at 17 and 21 months, respectively, while the other patient has cytological evidence of malignancy but no other clinically detectable tumor deposits at 27 months.

Mutations in human SIX1 gene cause branchiootorenal or branchiootic syndrome. Six1 deficient mice exhibit uni- or bilateral renal hypoplasia or kidney agenesis. Furthermore a lack of Six1 gene in the ureter leads to hydroureter and hydronephrosis....
