This was a prospective observational comparative hospital based study conducted in Khartoum Teaching Hospital, Sudan, during September 2011 and through February 2012, to evaluate the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (Paclitaxil and carboplatin) in the management of advanced ovarian cancer compared to primary surgery, and to determine the impact of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on the optimization of cytoreductive surgery. Chi-squaire and t tests were performed and P<0.05 was considered significant. A total of fifty patients were enrolled in this study, twenty patients received neoadjuvant chemotherapy and interval debulking surgery (IDS), and 30 patients underwent primary surgery (PS) and received adjuvant chemotherapy. In comparison with patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy there was higher proportion of patients showed intra-operative ascites (93.3% Vs 10%, P=<0.001), adhesion (66.6% Vs 0%, P=0.002), omental cake (53.3% Vs 15%, P=0.006) and distant metastasis (93.3% Vs 0%, P=<0.001) among the women who underwent primary surgery. This study showed optimal cyto-reductive surgery for the patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy in comparison with those who underwent primary surgery (100% Vs 50%, P=<0.001). The mean (SD) of hospital stay, ICU admission and units of blood transfusion was lower among patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Thus neoadjuvant chemotherapy is of more benefit than primary surgery in the management of advanced stage ovarian cancer.
