Mohs Microsurgery

This technique involves the excision of the penile tumor in thin layers combined with microscopic assessment of the underside of each layer and systematic use of frozen sections.39 Two variations exist. The first is a chemical fixation method whereby tissues are fixed in situ with zinc chloride paste prior to excision. In the second, local anesthetic is used prior to excision of fresh tissue which is then analyzed using frozen sections. The latter is recommended for small tumors. Complication rates of 1.2-3.6% have been reported, including residual urethral disease, wound dehiscence, and meatal stenosis.40 Although Moh's microsurgery is generally well tolerated and preserves the maximum amount of healthy underlying penile tissue, it is time consuming, requires highly skilled personnel, and importantly can leave the glans penis mis-shapen and requiring reconstructive surgery.
