Episode 5 features Christopher J. Miller, MD, FACMS, Director of the Penn Dermatology Oncology Center and Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Miller discusses two recent studies, Melanomas of the head and neck have high local recurrence risk features and require tissue rearranging reconstruction more commonly than BCC and SCC: A comparison of indications for microscopic margin control prior to reconstruction in 13,664 tumors and The 'Rule of 10s' versus the 'Rule of 2s': High complication rates after conventional excision with postoperative margin assessment of specialty site versus trunk and proximal extremity melanomas. Both were published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology in late 2018.
