This trial studies how well two surgical procedures (bilateral salpingectomy and bilateral
salpingo-oophorectomy) work in reducing the risk of ovarian cancer for women with BRCA1
mutations. Bilateral salpingectomy involves the surgical removal of fallopian tubes, and
bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy involves the surgical removal of both the fallopian tubes and
ovaries. This study may help doctors determine if the two surgical procedures are nearly the
same for ovarian cancer risk reduction for women with BRCA1 mutations.
