  3. 3. Senology Newsletter "Resection margin for patients with cutaneous melanoma", Peter Gillgren, Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden ""Clinicians today can be safer when they decide to treat patients with thick melanomas (>2mm) with a 2-cm excisional margin. In a randomised controlled multicentre trial from Karolinska Institute, 936 patients were allocated to either a 2-cm (465) or a 4-cm (471) margin. There were no differences in overall survival nor in recurrence free survival. Patients were followed 6,7 years."
