Abstract

A protocol was created for prospective margin status evaluation of patients with Oral SCC, Margins are evaluated intra- and post-operatively during three stages. Patients were divided into three groups; group 1 in which one margins were sampled randomly, group 2 with frozen sections taken from the surgical bed and 3 in which they were taken from the tumor specimen itself. Patients in group 3 showed the best correlation with final margin status and survival.
