Cryosurgery for basal cell carcinoma of the eyelids and nose: five-year experience.J Am Acad Dermatol. 1982 Jun; 6(6):1042-7.JA
Eighty-seven basal cell carcinomas of the eyelid and 155 of the nose were treated by cryosurgery. Complications were classified as early, intermediate, and late; severe complications were few in number. Three recurrences were noted on the eyelid and four on the nose. Cure rate was not calculated, because of short-term follow-up. Cosmetic results were excellent on the lid and less predictable on the nose. Additional advantages of cryosurgical technic concerning cost and convenience are discussed.
