BACKGROUND Reported rates of incomplete excision of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) range from 4% to 16.6%. OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess, in clinical practice, the rate and the factors associated with pathologically reported incomplete excision of BCC. METHODS In this retrospective monocentric study, data from all surgically excised BCCs during the year 2004 were computerized. Age, sex, number of BCC excised during the same surgical session, BCC location, pathologic types, and involvement…

Use of an audit to improve surgical treatment of facial basal cell carcinoma
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that performing an internal audit may improve treatment quality and therefore may be helpful in optimizing the effectiveness of present treatment modalities and their costs and the development of standards and guidelines.
Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck Region: A Retrospective Analysis of Completely Excised 331 Cases
TLDR
Head and neck region BCCs, especially which are more prone to recurrence due to anatomical and histopathological properties, should be more closely monitored in order to decrease morbidity and health care costs.
INCIDENCE OF INCOMPLETE EXCISION IN SURGICALLY TREATED BASAL CELL CARCINOMAS AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE RELATED RISK FACTORS
TLDR
A case series was designed to determine the frequency of incompletely excised basal cell carcinoma and the related risk factors and there was no statistically significant difference in age, sex, site of lesions and childhood history of radiotherapy for tinea capitis.
Nasal basal cell carcinomas. Can we reduce surgical margins to 3mm with complete excision?
Clinicopathological Factors Associated with Incomplete Excision of High-risk Basal Cell Carcinoma.
TLDR
Mohs micrographic surgery should be used more often for type II-III basal cell carcinomas on the face and scalp, as no association was found between incomplete excision rates and tumour size, excision margins, use of a preoperative biopsy or surgeon experience.
Incomplete excision of non-melanoma skin cancer of the head and neck: can we predict failure?
TLDR
Head and neck BCCs, and SCCs are difficult to treat, and the need for complete tumor excision is mandatory prior to reconstruction.
Incomplete excision of Basal Cell Carcinoma: Incidence and demographic evaluation among 30 Syrian case series
TLDR
The most common sites for incomplete excision were the ears, followed by the peri-ocular area, naso-labial folds and the nose, andMorphea type differentiation was associated with incomplete excisions, and risk factors related to incomplete excison were morphea type differentiate, repair by skin graft and lesions larger than 20 mm in diameter.
Attributes and risk factors of positive margins on 864 excisions of basal cell carcinomas: a single-center retrospective study
TLDR
Ag-P and H-zone remain critical risk factors for positive surgical margins (+SM) of excised BCC in a university hospital and appropriate treatment protocols should be used to ensure low + SM rates via CSE.
Variables Affecting Basal Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma In Situ Excision Clearance: A Multi-institutional Retrospective Study.
TLDR
Intrinsic tumor characteristics may influence the success of achieving tumor-free resection margins more than the specialty of the provider.
Rate of incomplete excision of basal cell carcinomas by General Practitioners with Special Interest
  • M. Twist
  • Medicine
    The British journal of dermatology
  • 2009
TLDR
The rate of incomplete excision of BCC in this GPwSI clinic compares favourably with the reported rates in the literature and may be of interest to readers for consideration of the role of General Practitioners with Special Interest in dermatological practice.

Risk factors for incomplete excision of basal cell carcinomas.
TLDR
In conclusion, incomplete excision of BCCs was associated with location of the tumors in the eyelids, ears, naso-labial folds and nose, and it is recommended that in patients with BCCs located in these sites, surgeons should commence particular surgical measures to avoid inadequate excision.
Incompletely excised basal cell carcinoma: a management dilemma?
TLDR
Observation is an acceptable management option in most situations, as only one-third of incompletely excised lesions needed further treatment.
Audit of histologically incompletely excised basal cell carcinomas: recommendations for management by re-excision.
TLDR
Re-excision appears the appropriate course in almost all the anatomical areas studied although, with the exception of the inner canthus, periorbital lesions will have a low probability of residual tumour being identified.
Surgical management of incompletely excised basal cell carcinomas of the head and neck.
A management approach to incompletely excised basal cell carcinomas of skin.
Histologic pattern analysis of basal cell carcinoma. Study of a series of 1039 consecutive neoplasms.
The incidence of incomplete excision in surgically treated basal cell carcinoma: a retrospective clinical audit.
TLDR
This study designed to quantify the incidence of incomplete excision and its association with the subsequent recurrence of the tumour and also to identify any variables that might affect it.
Incomplete excision of basal cell carcinoma: a prospective multicentre audit.
TLDR
When the various confounding factors were adjusted by logistic regression, the variables most likely to have affected the incidence of incomplete excision were found to be grade of surgeon, minimal excision margin and histological subtype.
Do plastic surgeons resect basal cell carcinomas too widely? A prospective study comparing surgical and histological margins.
TLDR
The measured surgical excision margins correlated well with those assessed histologically, as did the position of the closest margin, and the current practice represents a satisfactory balance between maintaining a low rate of incomplete excision and minimising the sacrifice of normal skin.
