The guideline reviews risk factors and provides recommendations on screening, diagnosis, surgical management, chemotherapy, and follow-up care. Special topics of consideration include the role of prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy in screening, and management of malignant bowel obstruction in relapsed disease. Outcomes of interest include diagnostic test accuracy, survival (overall and disease-free), response rates, quality of life, and adverse effects of treatment.
