Treatment Patterns, Outcomes, and Patient Satisfaction of Primary Epidermally Limited Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer.
Objective: To examine treatment efficacy and satisfaction in ELNMSC patients. Read More
Objective: This article aims to review the process of MMS, with the intent to identify and mitigate the potential errors at each step. Read More
Detection of High-Risk Histologic Features and Tumor Upstaging of Nonmelanoma Skin Cancers on Debulk Analysis: A Quantitative Systematic Review.
Objective: Determine the incidence of (1) high-risk features on debulk analysis compared with initial biopsy and (2) upstaging of tumors on debulk analysis according to the American Joint Committee of Cancer-7th Edition (AJCC-7) and the Brigham and Women's Alternative (BWH) staging criteria.
Materials And Methods: A comprehensive search strategy using PubMed/MEDLINE, Web of Science, and EMBASE was conducted to identify articles published from 1960 to present that detail histology of initial biopsy and debulked tumor. Read More
Objective: The purpose of this article is to comprehensively review the current literature on MAC pertaining to epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, histology, immunohistochemistry, prognosis, follow-up, and treatment.
Materials And Methods: An extensive literature review was conducted using OVID MEDLINE and PubMed to identify articles relating to MAC. Read More
Background: Dermatologists were historically well versed in the use of radiation therapy for the management of non-melanoma skin cancers and various inflammatory dermatologic conditions. With the advent of Mohs micrographic surgery and therapeutic discoveries for treating inflammatory dermatoses, radiotherapy assumed loss of a role in the clinical repertoire of the dermatologist. In recent years, its importance has again been realized for the management of non-melanoma skin cancers not amenable to surgical treatment or as adjuvant or palliative therapy. Read More

Objective: To identify the frequency of and risk factors associated with upstaging after wide local excision of primary melanoma.
Methods: Retrospective, single center, cross-sectional study of 1332 consecutive in situ to stage T4a melanomas treated with wide local excision. Read More
Recurrent Tumors Referred for Mohs Micrographic Surgery: A 12-Year Experience at a Single Academic Center.
Objective: To understand differing characteristics between primary versus recurrent tumors treated by MMS. Read More
Objective: To obtain quantitative measurements of perioperative cancer and cosmetic anxiety levels in first-time MMS patients. Parameters influencing anxiety and its natural course were assessed. Read More
Wide local excision vs. Mohs Tübingen technique in the treatment of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans: a two-centre retrospective study and literature review.
Objective: The aim of this study is to better clarify clinicopathological characteristics of this tumour and to evaluate the cure rates of Mohs Tübingen technique (MTT) and wide local excision (WLE). Eventually, we perform a literature review to compare our experience with published data. Read More
Objective: The authors sought to determine if smoke evacuation decreases patient perception of smoke created by electrosurgery during Mohs surgery and if it subsequently improves patient satisfaction with their surgical experience by minimizing the associated odor. Read More

Association Between Surgeon-Specific Features and Number of Stages, Flaps, and Grafts in Mohs Micrographic Surgery: A Retrospective Observational Study of 59 Early-, Mid- and Advanced-Career Mohs Surgeons.
Objective: To better understand the relationship between surgeon-specific characteristics and the number of Mohs micrographic surgery total cases, stages per case, number of grafts, and number of flaps performed by each surgeon. Read More
Objective: The purpose of our study was to investigate the frequency and effect of this practice. Read More

Recent Findings: Complications in facial Mohs reconstruction commonly consist of infection, wound necrosis and dehiscence, hematoma and suboptimal scarring. However, site-specific complications such as hairline or eyebrow distortion, eyelid retraction or ectropion, nasal contour abnormality, alar retraction, nasal valve compromise, significant facial asymmetry or even oral incompetence must also be considered.
