Fertility Sparing Management in Non-Epithelial Ovarian Cancer. Which Patients, What Procedure and What Outcome?


:Non epithelial ovarian tumors represent a small group of rare gynecological cancers but they have a high incidence in young childbearing women. The recent years fertility preservation surgeries have become a common practice in specific ovarian malignancies when the patients wish to maintain their fertility. Specific types of non-epithelial ovarian tumors can be managed with fertility sparing operations with a similar outcome to more radical intervention but due to the rarity of these tumors the extent of the operation remains in some cases controversial. Moreover, the reproductive outcome of the women that had these conservative operations seems to be very promising. In our review we try to summarize the data regarding the fertility sparing management of all types of non-epithelial ovarian cancers and what procedure should be performed in each case. Finally we have accumulated the data concerning the reproductive outcome of patients that had undergone this type of surgery.
