This CME activity consists of reading an article and completing the test and evaluation that follow. The article describes the findings of a study that suggests that ovary-preserving surgery in premenopausal women may have no negative impact on survival rates. After reading this article, physicians should be able to describe the results of the study to patients, explain that removal of the ovaries is the preferred method of treatment, that preservation of the ovaries may still have adverse consequences in the long run, and that the study was a review of data, which is not as strong a form of evidence as a controlled trial.
