The role of lymphadenectomy in the treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer has been the object of controversy for years. The effect regarding stage and prognosis has been systematically reviewed through the existing literature. Lymphadenectomy gives a better clinical staging and is correlated with a better survival, but causes more surgical complications. It is advisable that all women with epithelial ovarian cancer have lymphadenectomy performed, thus ensuring a correct staging and thereby the optimal treatment.
