NACT is a heavy oncologic treatment, which can impair functional capacity, nutritional and emotional status. These three impairments are often ignored and not taken into account in the pre-therapeutic evaluations but are correlated with postoperative morbidity and mortality after major surgery.
Recently, a prehabilitation before surgery, including physical, nutritional and psycho-social support, has been defined. From a literature review, the maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max) seems to constitute a strong evaluation factor reflecting physical fitness, easily measured with a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) at maximal effort.
Several studies have shown beneficial effects of trimodal prehabilitation programs on postoperative functional capacity, return to daily activities and pain relief.
Home-based program and connected devices may improve the feasibility and the compliance to this program.
The hypothesis of this study is that performing a connected supervised home-based and patient-tailored multimodal prehabilitation program from diagnosis to surgery (with or without ERAS program) during NACRT, for patients managed for ovarian cancer, will limit physical fitness alteration and will positively affect postoperative outcomes.
Our study consists in an early and multidimensional (combining nutritional, physical, emotional and medical support) prehabilitation program during NACT for patients with ovarian cancer, in order to limit physical alteration before surgical treatment, and therefore improve postoperative outcomes. It will include a home-based prehabilitation program, in order to allow care access to all eligible patients.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Ovarian Cancer||Other: Prehabilitation program||Not Applicable|
The main objective will be to determine if a prehabilitation program during NACT, for patients treated for an advanced ovarian cancer will limit physical alteration before major abdomino-pelvic surgery, compared to a control group without prehabilitation program. The primary endpoint will be the comparison of the variation of VO2 max, between baseline and surgery, in the prehabilitation group vs control group: VO2 max will be measured with a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) at maximal effort.
This prospective, multicentric randomized control trial will be conducted in 7 French comprehensive cancer Centers or University Hospital, in compliance with inclusion criteria. After an initial evaluation, patients will be randomized in two groups: Prehabilitation group (P group) and a Control group (C group).
For the P group, after baseline evaluation, we will be offering from diagnosis to surgery, during the NACT:
- A standardized, patient-tailored preoperative physical activity training program will be performed at home, from diagnosis to surgery. Supervision will be done with connected device (connected watches) and activity will be adapted,
- A nutritional care established in respect of the SFNEP-SFNCM guidelines. Nutritional support will be adapted by a dietician according to information transmitted daily (connected body fat weight scale),
- A psychological support with coping strategies.
For the C group: Patients with ovarian cancer will undergo NACT after baseline evaluation without prehabilitation program.
After NACT, for both groups, major abdomino-pelvic surgery will be done with or without ERAS pathway, according to the practice in each center.
