Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph.

The poor survival of patients with melanoma in more advanced stages and the good prognosis when diagnosis and surgical treatment occur at an early stage of disease in the USA and worldwide, reveal the need for screening and early detection of the diseases and the limitations of surgery alone in patients with advanced pT and pN tumor staging. Recurrence after surgery with curative intent is the major cause of treatment failure and death.
