Recommendations for Ovarian Cancer Surgery Chaired by Prof. Denis Querleu (France), this project was aimed at developing clinically relevant and evidence-based guidelines for the surgical management of patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cancer throughout Europe. The guidelines are focused on the role, objectives, and standards of the surgical management. Medical management is not addressed, as the standards of medical management (referred to as “chemotherapy”) will be defined at the time of a forthcoming consensus conference in collaboration with the European society of medical oncology (ESMO). Method The ESGO Council nominated an International Expert Panel made of practicing clinicians who provide care to ovarian cancer patients and have demonstrated leadership and interest in the management of ovarian patients. To ensure that the statements are evidence-based, the current literature, identified from a systematic search carried out in MEDLINE and selected websites, has been reviewed and critically appraised. In the absence of any clear scientific evidence, judgment was based on the professional experience and consensus of the Expert Panel (expert agreement). The process included also an external evaluation of the guidelines. The ESGO Council established a large panel of practicing clinicians and patients independent from the Expert Panel to evaluate the guidelines (quantitative and qualitative evaluations). Responses were pooled and discussed by the Expert Panel to finalize the guidelines.
