  • Because of the small number of patients in each group and the retrospective nature of the analysis, it is difficult to draw definitive conclusions from this study. However, our data suggest that in patients who are selected to undergo an initial excisional biopsy followed by CMT, 30 Gy may be an adequate radiation dose. Local control may be higher in patients who undergo an excisional biopsy followed by CMT compared with the converse.
