This study enrolled patients from 2005 to 2008 into a non-randomised phase 2 clinical trial examining the safety, feasibility and tolerability of radical surgery, followed by combination chemotherapy with Carboplatin and Paclitaxel, followed by radical radiotherapy to the pelvis.
From 2009 to 2013, 109 malnourished patients requiring surgery for suspected advanced ovarian cancer were enrolled into this clinical trial to test if early enteral feeding improved postoperative quality of life and other health measures.
The primary objective of this study was to establish the time of onset, incidence, prevalence and severity of lymphoedema after gynaecological cancer treatment.
