Electrochemotherapy included into German guidelines for treatment of cutaneous melanoma

09/10/2013


Tell your friend  | 

This first German evidence-based guideline for cutaneous melanoma was developed under the auspices of the German Dermatological Society (DDG) and the Dermatologic Cooperative Oncology Group (DeCOG) and funded by the German Guideline Program in Oncology. The recommendations are based on a systematic literature search, and on the consensus of 32 medical societies, working groups and patient representatives. This guideline contains recommendations concerning diagnosis, therapy and follow-up of melanoma.

Electrochemotherapy is recommended therapy in cases:

  • when repeatedly recurring metastases cannot be managed surgically;
  • in the presence of multiple, inoperable, locoregional cutaneous metastases on an extremity;
  • when the number of satellite and in-transit metastases exceeds 5–10.
