Maximal cytoreduction and platinum-based chemotherapy remain the mainstay treatments for epithelial ovarian cancer. New modalities include targeted therapy, intraperitoneal chemotherapy, and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. With different characteristics in different patients and the complexity of diseases, treatment should be individualised and reviewed by a multidisciplinary team.
