br Conclusion br Lymphadenectomy may have a
Lymphadenectomy may have a therapeutic value and be significantly associated with im-proved survival in advanced stage ovarian cancer patients. The effect of lymphadenectomy on PFS was only found in patients with early stage and advanced stage disease with >10 Omadacycline node removed. In advanced stage patients, pelvic + paraaortic lymphadenectomy has more sur-vival benefit compared to pelvic lymphadenectomy alone.
