Abstract

The authors report the results obtained after regional lymphnode dissection in 140 patients with malignant melanoma of the skin. They underline the frequency of complications and sequelae, and the improved survical rate when delayed node dissection is performed, compared to those patients in whom it is carried out immediately. The results of a randomized therapeutic trial organized by the international group of the W.H.O. comparing simple excision and delayed dissection on request with excision and immediate dissection showed no difference in the survival rate of the 2 groups treated, and the authors maintain their attitude, which has been adopted by the Gustave-Roussy Institute for many years now, and refuse systematic dissection in the absence of clinical adenopathy (NO).
