Summary Surgical treatment for ovarian cancer in Denmark 2004-2007 Ugeskr Læger 2009;171(4):217-220 Introduction: Previous national surveys have demonstrated that surgical treatment for ovarian cancer in Denmark is performed in too many low-volume departments. Material and methods: Nationwide data from the National Patient Registry from January 1 December 2004-31 December 2007 including all primary operations for ovarian cancer and recording the number of departments, length of hospital stay and mortality. Results: A total of 1,908 women were operated, initially at 47 departments (stage III-IV 31 departments), a number which was reduced to eight departments by 2007 and further reduction to a total of six departments is planned in 2008. The 30-day mortality was constant (about 3.9%) over the 4-year period. Conclusion: The organisation of surgical treatment for ovarian cancer has improved since the Danish Health Board in 2001 recommended that operations be performed at five high-volume departments.
