Sentinel node status predicts survival in thick melanomas: the Oxford perspective.

Abstract:

AIMS: To determine the prognostic value of SLNB in patients with thick melanoma in terms of overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS). METHODS: 136 patients with primary tumours (Breslow thickness ≥ 4.0 mm) underwent SLNB. OS and RFS were calculated and a multivariate Cox regression model used to determine the important prognostic factors for predicting OS and RFS. RESULTS: Median Breslow thickness was 5.5 mm and 60% were ulcerated. Median follow up was 4 years (95% CI = 4-5) ...
