I have made it my task with this paper to outline principles for the treatment of ovarian carcinoma. Emphasis has been laid on pathology and on anatomical extent of the growth. The extension of the tumor should be outlined in detail at clinical examination and at laparotomy. Excision of the carcinoma should be performed to the greatest possible extent. Every effort should be made to keep the capsule intact. In cases of serous and endometrioid carcinoma fixed to surrounding tissue by firm adhesions, it may be appropriate to restrict the operation to an explorative laparatomy and to operate on the patient again 10 to 14 days after completion of radiation.
