Table 3 Diagnostic performance of significant variables of incomplete cytoreduction at interval debulking surgery

From: A predictive score for optimal cytoreduction at interval debulking surgery in epithelial ovarian cancer: a two- centers experience

Variable NPV (%) Unnecessarily explored (1-NPV) (%) PPV (%) Inappropriately unexplored (1-PPV) (%)
Age > 60 years 84,6 15,4 40,7 59,1
CA-125 at diagnosis > 550 UI/dl 86,3 13.7 35,2 64,6
PCI > 16 85,9 14,1 71,4 28,6
PSC > 3 83,5 16,5 100 0
  1. CA-125 Cancer Antigen 125, PCI Peritoneal Cancer Index, PSC Predictive score of cytoreduction, NPV negative predictive value, PPV positive predictive value, Acc accuracy, Unnecessary explored (1-NPV): number of cases that would be considered as resectable disease but non-optimally cytoreduced at laparotomy; Inappropriately unexplored (1-PPV): number of cases that would be considered as unresectable but optimally cytoreduced after laparotomy
