Laparoscopic Staging in Patients With Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Other Primary Abdominal Cancers

RATIONALE: Laparoscopic staging may help doctors plan more effective treatment for ovarian, primary fallopian tube, and primary abdominal cancers.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of laparoscopic staging in patients with ovarian, primary fallopian tube, or primary abdominal cancers who have not undergone complete staging.

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the feasibility of laparoscopic staging of patients with incompletely staged ovarian, primary fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers. II. Assess the adverse effects associated with this technique.

OUTLINE: Surgery. Laparoscopy with cytologic examination and lymph node sampling followed, if feasible, by surgical resection.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Up to 50 patients will be accrued over approximately 2 years. If more than 4 evaluable patients cannot complete surgery, the study will be closed.

Phase 2
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Fallopian Tube Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
Procedure: laparoscopic surgery
