Abstract

BACKGROUND. Large, prospective, randomized trials with long term follow-upare required to obtain an unbiased evaluation of the significance of resection margins in patients with cutaneous melanoma. METHODS, The Swedish Melanoma Study Group performed a prospective, randomized, multicenter study of patients with primary melanoma located on trunk or extremities and with a tumor thickness > 0.8 mm and less than or equal to2 mm. Patients were allocated randomly to a 2-cm excision margin or a 5-cmexcision margin. In total, 989 patients were recruited during the period 1982-1991. The median follow-up, was 11 years (range, 7-17 years) for estimation of survival and 8 years (range, 0-17 years) for evaluation of recurrent disease. RESULTS. The crude rate of local recurrence, defined as a recurrence in the scar or transplant, was < 1% (8 of 989 patients). Twenty percent of the patients (194 of 989 patients) experienced any disease recurrence, and 15% (146 of 989 patients) died of melanoma. There were no statistically significant differences between the two treatment arms. In a multivariate Cox analysis with patients allocated to wide excision as the reference group, the estimated relative hazards for overall survival and recurrence free survival among those allocated to a 2-cm resection margin were 0.96 (95% confidence interval, 0.75-1.24), and 1.02 (95% confidence interval, 0.80-1.30), respectively. CONCLUSIONS. In this long term follow-up study, local recurrences were found to be rare among patients with tumors > 0.8 mm thick and less than or equal to 2.0 mm thick. Mo difference in recurrence rate or survival between the two treatment groups was found. Patients in this category can be treatedwith a resection margin of 2 cm as safely as with a resection margin of 5 cm. Cancer 2000;89:1495-501. (C) 2000 American Cancer Society.
