OBJECTIVES: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) has expanded markedly in recent years but there is limited information on volume, practice patterns or reimbursement. This study characterizes MMS utilization in the Medicare population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File Calendar Year 2013 data set for provider service volume and reimbursement for dermatologists who did and did not perform MMS procedures...

INTRODUCTION: Ocular invasion is extremely rare for a primary eyelid Basosquamous Carcinoma (BSC). It can however occur in neglected cases if the clinical signs are overseen and the BSC is misdiagnosed for a less aggressive skin carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 58-year-old man suffering from an inferior eyelid BSC that had been neglected for 7 years was referred to our clinic. A local infiltration of the maxillary sinus and the contents of the orbit by the tumor was discovered, and he was managed with a left orbital exenteration and resection of the involved orbital bone...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a slow growing low-grade cutaneous sarcoma. Local recurrence after excision is common due to the poorly defined periphery that renders histological control of surgical margin difficult, Mohs micrographic surgery is the optimal method for treatment. A 41 years old male patient, who had a previous history of DFSP, came to our dermatology clinic for evaluation of an asymptomatic firm flesh-colored nodule on the forehead. Total excision biopsy was done and the mass was histologically proved as DFSP...

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare neoplastic condition that commonly affects the anogenital area in the elderly. Owing to its low incidence, limited data regarding EMPD's diagnosis and treatment have been available. This review article aims to explore the current knowledge of EMPD to improve the management of this disease. Areas covered: This review outlines the diagnosis and management of EMPD. Articles on this issue that had been published in PubMed were identified and surveyed. We provide an overview of the reported studies, focusing on the recent advances in this field...

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a highly specialized technique that has been successful in the treatment of a variety of skin tumors. The technique can be performed as an outpatient procedure and encompasses surgical excision and intraoperative assessment of tumor margins in one setting by the same physician. The process ensures precise margin control with maximal preservation of healthy tissues. Mohs micrographic surgery has been practiced worldwide, including in the United States, Europe (United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Switzerland), and Australia...

Lentigo maligna (LM) and lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) account for 10% of all melanomas and are mainly located on head and neck areas.1-4 Complete surgical excision is the recommended treatment. However, this treatment is often challenging because of LM/LMM location in the face and the difficulty in the identification of its surgical margins1-5 . Local recurrence of LM/LMM still represents a major concern with recurrence rates after conventional surgical excision of 8 to 20% of cases, up to 47% in absence of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS)...

BACKGROUND: Although Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), narrow margin excision (NME), and wide margin excision (WME) are commonly used to treat melanoma of the face, there is a paucity of data comparing mortality outcomes for each method. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between surgical method used to treat cutaneous melanoma of the face and patient survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registries for patients diagnosed with melanoma of the face between 2003 and 2012 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Changes in patient perceptions of quality of life (QOL) after Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) may benefit from different counseling or treatment. OBJECTIVE: To measure QOL before and after MMS and to identify risk factors associated with impaired QOL. METHODS: Prospective observational study of 727 skin cancer patients who self-reported QOL via the Skin Cancer Index immediately before and at 1-2 weeks and 3 months after MMS. RESULTS: QOL fluctuated after MMS...

BACKGROUND: Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare intraepithelial malignancy with high recurrence rates following standard surgical treatments, ranging from 22% to 60% in large retrospective reviews. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the local recurrence rate of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) supplemented with intraoperative immunohistochemistry for cytokeratin-7 (MMS + CK-7) for primary and recurrent EMPD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective, multi-center, cross-sectional study of patients treated using MMS + CK-7...

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is the treatment of choice for high-risk basal cell carcinoma.1,2 The technique combines tissue conservation with complete microscopic margin control, leading to superior cure rates while minimizing deformity.3 MMS involves several steps that should be meticulously followed to achieve this high cure rate.4 This article is protected by copyright.

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment options for facial melanomas include conventional excision with postoperative margin assessment (CE-POMA), Mohs micrographic surgery with immunostains (MMS-I) or slow Mohs. Patient preferences for these surgical options have not been studied. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate patient preferences for surgical treatment of facial melanoma and to determine how patients value the relative importance of different surgical attributes. METHODS: Participants completed a two-part study consisting of a stated preference survey and a choice-based conjoint analysis (CBCA) experiment...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The V-to-Y advancement flap, also known as the island pedicle flap, is a single-stage repair option that can be used for defects on the distal nose. We report our experience using this flap for nasal defects following Mohs micrographic surgery, as well as describe optimal patient selection and flap design. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of all patient charts and operative photographs of nasal V-to-Y advancement flaps performed over 6 years at the Universtiy of Texas Southwestern Medical Center...

Pancreas injury by partial duct ligation (PDL) activates beta cell differentiation and proliferation in adult mouse pancreas but remains controversial regarding the anticipated increase in beta cell volume. Several reports unable to show beta cell volume augmentation in PDL pancreas used automated digital image analysis software. We hypothesized that fully automatic beta cell morphometry without manual micrograph artifact remediation introduces bias and therefore might be responsible for reported discrepancies and controversy...

BACKGROUND: The optimal surgical approach (wide local excision (WLE) vs. Mohs micrographic surgery (MOHS)) for treating Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is yet to be determined. OBJECTIVE: To compare survival outcomes in patients with early stage MCC treated with MOHS versus WLE. METHODS: A retrospective review of all cases in the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) of MCC of clinical Stage I-II MCC treated with WLE or MOHS was performed. RESULTS: 1,795 cases of Stage I-II MCC were identified who underwent WLE (N=1,685) or MOHS (N=110)...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most commonly diagnosed skin cancer worldwide. In most patients, BCC can be effectively treated with standard surgical excision, Mohs micrographic surgery, curettage and electrodessication, radiotherapy, and/or superficial field therapies (including 5-fluorouracil, imiquimod, and photodynamic therapy); however, a minority of patients develop advanced BCC, for which treatment can be challenging and outcomes are poorer. Advanced BCC encompasses a heterogeneous assortment of cases, including metastatic BCC as well as locally advanced BCC (for which no formal definition exists but which generally includes large, deep, aggressive, or recurrent tumors)...

BACKGROUND: Consent and wound care (WC) videos are used for education in Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). Postoperative text messaging is poorly studied. OBJECTIVE: Develop and evaluate perioperative resources for MMS patients-video modules (DermPatientEd.com) and postoperative text messaging (DermTexts.com). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A study was conducted on 90 MMS patients. Patients were randomized 1:1:1:1 to videos with text messages, videos-only, text messages-only, or control...
