Research recommendations coming out of this guidance
- NICE encourages further research on ultra-radical (extensive) surgery for advanced ovarian cancer, either in the form of research trials or in audits intended for publication (ideally by collaboration between units). Clinicians should ensure that details of patient selection and the precise extent of surgery are fully documented. Reported outcomes should include all complications, survival, and quality of life. Trials comparing complication rates, survival and quality of life against those of standard surgery and chemotherapy would be especially useful.
