Laparoscopy seems to be an acceptable technical option to perform restaging of apparently early adnexal carcinomas. It spares the patients the discomfort of repeat laparotomy. Long-term outcome results suggest that laparoscopic staging, provided it meets the standards, accurately detects the patients who need chemotherapy and safely select the patients who can be proposed surgery only.
