To compare the non-inferiority of bilateral salpingectomy (BLS) with delayed oophorectomy to bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer among women with deleterious BRCA1 germline mutations.
To prospectively assess estrogen deprivation symptoms in BLS patients as measured by the FACT-ES subscale compared to women in the BSO arm.
To determine if health-related QOL (FACT) is negatively impacted by menopausal symptoms (menopausal symptom checklist-MSCL), sexual dysfunction (FSFI), and cancer distress (IES) in women who have undergone BLS, in comparison to normative data (MSCL/FACT-ES) and data from BSO patients.
To assess medical decision making, as measured by the Shared Decision Making Questionnaire (SDM-Q-9) and Decision Regret Scale (DRS), and determine factors associated with the risk of reducing surgical treatment choice.
To assess adverse events, graded using CTCAE v5.0.
Women 35-50 years of age, who have declined or elected to defer RRSO after proper counselling to clearly explain the standard of care for BRCA1 mutation carriers (for the BLS with delayed oophorectomy arms) or patients who are undergoing RRSO (for the RRSO arm).
