This month’s Education Highlight is from In the Know (Ed’s List)

In the Know is prepared by Edward Pavlik, PhD, Professor and Director of Ovarian Screening Research Program, University of Kentucky on a monthly basis. Ed’s lists provide a compilation of abstracts related to the field of gynecologic oncology from multiple scholarly journals.

The following is an article chosen from Ed’s List: Development of Peritoneal Carcinoma in women diagnosed with Serous Tubal Intraepithelial Carcinoma (STIC) following Risk-Reducing Salpingo-Oophorectomy (RRSO). PI Stanciu, TE. J. Ind, DPJ. Barton, JB Butler, KM Vroobel, AD Attygalle, MAE Nobbenhuis. Journal of Ovarian Research 12(50) 2019

The article concludes:

Cases negative for evidence of serous carcinoma of peritoneal origin at the time of Risk-Reducing Salpingo-Oophorectomy and found to be STIC positive, developed serous carcinoma of peritoneal origin 4-6 years later. This suggests that continuing follow-up should be considered when a STIC lesion has been identified.

Stay “In the Know” and keep up with Ed’s List in the Members-Only IGCS Literature Library.
