Correct surgical therapy considers radical
excision of tumor formation, what can be certificated by absence of tumor cells
on histopathological specimen margins.
The aim of this investigation is to estimate incidence of presence of tumor
cells on histopathological specimen margins in cases of intraoral carcinomas,
surgically excised in macroscopically normal tissue with different wideness of
normal tissue zone and relation to postoperative survival of this patients with
Fifty seven patients with intraoral carcinomas were divided in three groups
according to wideness of zone of excision in macroscopically normal tissue.
Lowest percent of presence of tumor cells on margins of histopathological
specimens were ingroup of patients with zone of excision behind zone of
indurations of soft tissue, but patients from this group had shortest
postoperative survival period. Presence of tumor cells on margins of
histopathological specimens of excided intraoral carcinomas was found in high
number of 81,07%.
It can be said that presence of tumor cells on margins of histopathological
specimens of excided intraoral carcinomas was found in extremely high number of
81,07%, but direct statistical significant relation in-between wideness of
surgical excision and postoperative survival period was not found what show that
another factors connected with postoperative survival of this patients must be
examine. Acta Medica Medianae 2003; 42(3):23-25.
