Laparoscopic evaluation of metastatic ovarian cancer: A case report
Objective and case: Both noninvasive and invasive rt1ethods have limited value in the diagnosis of metastatic ovarian cancer. We present a case with the initial complaint of abdominal distention in whom primary and metastatic tumor sites were safely diagnosed by using laparoscopy: a gastric tumor with ovarian metastasis. Discussion: Diagnostic laparoscopy by the open technique provides a safe and effective diagnostic option in patients with metastatic ovarian cancer.
