TI  - Surgical Management of Localized Melanoma: A National Cancer Database
      Retrospective Review.

AB  - Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) for melanoma remains controversial. Currently, no
      published clinical trials have examined the role of MMS versus wide local
      excision (WLE) for melanoma, despite the fact that the use of MMS for melanoma is
      increasing in the United States. The limited retrospective data that does exist
      demonstrates MMS as an equally effective modality for the management of melanoma 
      in-situ, lentigo maligna melanoma, and cutaneous head and neck melanomas.
      Currently, MMS is primarily used for in-situ and very thin melanomas. Therefore, 
      we sought to examine the role of MMS in localized melanomas, according to the
      AJCC sixth and seventh editions. In this short analysis, we examined overall
      survival in patients undergoing MMS versus WLE in localized, cutaneous melanoma.
