From 1975 to 1982, 25 evaluable patients with FIGO Stage I ovarian cancer were treated with intraperitoneal chromic phosphate (32P). All patients underwent total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with (28%) or without (72%) omentectomy, with no other surgical staging procedures prior to referral. Patients were restaged by laparoscopy (inspection of diaphragms, abdomen, and pelvis), biopsy of suspicious lesions, and peritoneal cytologic washings prior to intraperitoneal chromic phosphate therapy. For the 25 patients, the estimated 5- and 10-year recurrence-free rates and the 5- and 10-year survival rates are 84% and 75%, respectively. Excellent 10-year recurrence-free rates were achieved for Stages IA and IC, nonruptured cysts, and Grade I and II tumors. In contrast, very low 10-year survival rates were achieved for patients with Stage IB, ruptured cysts, or Grade III tumors.
