Abstract: Cure rates after treatment of basal cell carcinomas with curettage-electrodesiccation were compared among three groups: group A, 597 lesions treated in the Skin and Cancer Unit in 1958 to 1962; group B, 91 lesions treated in the Skin and Cancer Unit in 1970; and group C, 210 lesions treated in private practice in 1962 to 1973. The following were the five-year cumulative recurrence rates: group A, 18.8%; group B, 9.6%; and group C, 5.7%. In all three groups, there were high recurrence rates for tumors treated o… Show more

“…This study observed a success rate of 89% for ED&C. Although finding the success rate of ED&C was not the primary purpose of this study, our success rate correlates well with previous research showing success rates between 84 and 98% [6,7,10,11] . There are several potential confounding variables.…”

“…64 This could explain the high recurrence rates after CE, both in the first group of tumors reported on by Kopf et al 38 (treated between 1958 and 1962) and in the study performed by Silverman et al, 41 who described less favorable results in tumors treated in the earlier years (1955)(1956)(1957)(1958)(1959)(1960)(1961)(1962)(1963). This explanation is only a hypothetical one because other tumor-specific factors could have attributed to these results.…”

“…This is stated in several reports [3,15] in connection with the most frequently used type of treatment, namely curettage combined with electrodesiccation. Some authors [3] found that the frequency of recurrence varied from 5 to 18%, depending on the doctor's routine.…”
