Keloid treatment: what about adjuvant radiotherapy ?
|Published in||Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology. 2019, vol. 12, p. 295-301|
|Abstract||Keloids are debilitating fibrous skin proliferations with a high recurrence rate after surgical treatment. Postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) is a well-tolerated adjuvant treatment to reduce the risk of recurrence, but the optimal regimen for this combined treatment remains unknown. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of combining surgical excision and immediate PORT.|
