Abdominal wall metastases from ovarian cancer after laparoscopy.

Author information

  • 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of South Florida, Tampa.


We report three cases of abdominal wall metastases from ovarian cancer after laparoscopy. The implants occurred at the site of insertion of laparoscopy trocars. One patient had an implant of serous papillary carcinoma of low malignant potential at the trocar sites after laparoscopic oophorectomy. Laparoscopic surgery is inappropriate in patients with malignant ascites or when preoperative or intraoperative findings are suggestive of ovarian cancer.
