Abstract

Our retrospective study evaluates the role of conservative surgery, performed in 10 of 22 patients affected by advanced stage serous borderline ovarian tumor. Although patients who underwent conservative surgery had a higher recurrence rate (60% after conservative surgery and 8% after radical surgery), all patients are alive without evidence of disease.
