After amean of 37 and 52 months follow-up, the overall survival was 100% and 93%, anddisease-free survival was 93% and 79% for serous and mucinous tumors,respectively. In this series, advanced stage was associated with poorprognosis. However, to obtain more accurate information further studies withnumber of patients and longer follow-up is recommended.
