Management and Reconstruction of Periocular Malignancies
10 August 2007 (online)
Skin cancers are increasing as the population ages. Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas are the most commonly occurring lesions. The frozen section techniques and Mohs' techniques are considered to be the gold standard of treatment of periocular carcinomas. Strategies for treatment of these lesions as well as reconstruction of full-thickness eyelid defects and partial-thickness skin defects are discussed.
