Risk Reducing Salpingectomy With Delayed Oophorectomy as an Alternative to Risk- Reducing Salpingo-oophorectomy in High Risk-Women

About the Study

This study is looking at whether removal of the () followed by removal of the ovaries () at a later date closer to the time of natural menopause may reduce the risk of ovarian cancer nearly as much as removing both the ovaries and at the same time (salpingo-oophorectomy) among women with an inherited , , , or mutation. Removing the only first and the ovaries at a later time closer to natural menopause may lessen menopausal symptoms while still lowering the risk for ovarian cancer.

What the Study Involves

Participants in this study will enroll in one of two groups. Participants will choose which group they enroll in based on their surgical preference. 

  • Group 1 will include women who choose risk-reducing removal of () with delayed
  • Group 2 will include women who choose removal of both and ovaries at the same time, (salpingo-oophorectomy) which is considered standard-of-care.
