Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is acknowledged as the gold-standard treatment for high risk non-melanoma skin cancer of the head and neck. By virtue of its tissue-sparing nature, patients who undergo MMS may require several stages or 'layers' to successfully extirpate a tumour. Under such circumstances it is commonplace for adhesive dressings to be applied between each stage to cover an exposed wound bed and act as a temporary pressure dressing to reduce the risk of bleeding.
