NACT significantly reduces the tumour burden before surgery and allows an easier and optimal cytoreduction. It also decreases the chances of morbidity and amount of blood loss of wide surgical resections and hence reduces intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital stay.4,9-12

"It's been shown in numerous studies that women who receive their care from gynecologic oncologists have a significantly higher likelihood of receiving NCCN guidelines [recommended] therapy, optimal cytoreduction, and better overall survival," Dr.
Using these aggressive techniques, Sugarbaker et al33 report 5-year survival rates of 86% for patients with complete cytoreduction and adenomucinosis (DPAM), 50% survival rates for patients with hybrid or mucinous carcinoma and complete cytoreduction, and 20% survival rates for patients with incomplete cytoreduction.

Incisional injection of liposomal bupivacaine has been associated with a reduction in the rate of ileus from 22% to 11% after complex cytoreduction for ovarian cancer when added to an existing enhanced recovery pathway; rates were only 5% for patients undergoing staging alone.4 These findings may be due to the significant reduction in opioid use that accompanied the use of liposomal bupivacaine.
