Abstract

Advances in our understanding of melanoma biology and the role of immune checkpoint blockade and targeted therapy have ushered in a new and rapidly evolving era of multidisciplinary care for patients with melanoma. Based on efficacy for patients with metastatic melanoma, these systemic treatment approaches have been introduced into the adjuvant and, more recently, the neoadjuvant landscape. This report highlights the results of key clinical studies published or initially presented in 2021 that have informed our evidence-based approach to melanoma multidisciplinary care, primarily related to adjuvant and neoadjuvant approaches for patients with resectable or resected stage III or high-risk stage II melanoma and their impact on clinical care. Knowledge concerning these areas of active clinical investigation is critical for surgical oncologists who care for melanoma patients as the treatment landscape continues to evolve.
