Sixteen FIGO stage IIB-IV ovarian carcinoma patients who completed six to 12 courses of a cisplatinum-based combination chemotherapy and with minimal (less than 2 cm), microscopic, or no residual disease at second-look laparatomy received moving-strip abdomino-pelvic radiotherapy. Radiation treatment was feasible with acceptable toxicity; two patients had to interrupt therapy--one pretreated with 12 PAC courses because of WHO grade III leukopenia and the other because of grade III diarrhea. A third patient required surgery because of intestinal obstruction 1 month after cessation of radiotherapy. In patients with minimal residual disease at second look, the therapeutic value of sequential radiotherapy was unsatisfactory (five of six progressed), while further investigations were warranted in patients with no or microscopic residuum after second-look operation.
