The aim of this study was to develop clinically relevant and evidence-based guidelines as part of European Society of Gynaecological Oncology’s mission to improve the quality of care for women with gynecological cancers across Europe.

The European Society of Gynaecological Oncology council nominated an international multidisciplinary development group made of practicing clinicians who have demonstrated leadership and interest in the care of ovarian cancer (20 experts across Europe).

To ensure that the statements are evidence based, the current literature identified from a systematic search has been reviewed and critically appraised. In the absence of any clear scientific evidence, judgmentwas based on the professional experience and consensus of the development group (expert agreement).

The guidelines are thus based on the best available evidence and expert agreement. Before publication, the guidelines were reviewed by 66 international reviewers independent from the development group including patients representatives.

The guidelines cover preoperative workup, specialized multidisciplinary decision making, and surgical management of diagnosed epithelial ovarian,
