Abstract The surgical management of lymph nodes continues to be important in melanoma since effective systemic therapies are not available. Controversy exists around the significance of the early detection and management of microscopically positive lymph nodes detected by sentinel lymph node biopsy and this is the subject of current surgical clinical trials. Complete lymphadenectomy is recommended for lymph node metastases. The importance of proper surgical technique is discussed.
