Omentectomy

General

The omentum is removed for ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, and cancer in the peritoneum, as well as serous papillary and clear-cell endometrial cancer because there is often macro and/or microscopic spreading. The omentum is removed to diagnose spreading. 

The omentectomy is part of the stage determination.

Indications

  • Ovarian cancer 
  • Fallopian tube cancer 
  • Cancer in the peritoneum
  • Serous papillary and clear-cell endometrial cancer

Goal

  • Remove visible tumors and to check for possible micrometastases.
