Turf war for eyelid tumours? Plastic Surgery vs Ophthalmology services in a single trust

Author: Victoria Barnett
ePoster Number: 213


To compare the pathway for treatment of eyelid tumours Plastic and Oculoplastic surgery


Retrospective review of electronic records of all patients with eyelid malignancy treatment in a single NHS trust from 2015 to 2019.


139 patients had eyelid cancer excisions 102 patients were eligible for full inclusion. Plastic Pathway: 40 (39%) patients were treated by Plastics. 68% (27) were referred by GP, of which 74% (20) were via a 2WW pathway to dermatology then Plastic surgery for management. 55% (22) under Plastics received first definitive treatment (FDT) within 62 days of referral. 58% (23) underwent wide local excision (WLE), 20% (8) had margin control excision, 20% (8) had other non-margin controlled excision, and 3% (1) declined treatment.Oculoplastic Pathway: 58 (57%) patients were treated by Oculoplastics. 57% (13) of those referred directly to Oculoplastics received FDT within 62 days of referral. 41 (71%) underwent margin-controlled excision, 95% of whom had Mohs at a different trust and were referred to Oculoplastics for reconstruction following decision to treat by Dermatology. 10% (6) underwent WLE, 6% (4) had other non-margin controlled excision, 5% (3) were unknown, and 2% (1) declined treatment.


The two services for eyelid malignancies have similar referral to biopsy time. Plastic Surgery appear to have a preference for WLE and Oculoplastics controlled margin excision usually Mohs. Raising awareness in the community level locally and nationally should be recommended as a priority to promote our specialty’s expertise in periocular pathology management
