Authors' recommendations: The studies included for assessment in this prioritising summary update support those included in the original summary, in that ECT showed moderately satisfying effectiveness and safety in the treatment of cutaneous or subcutaneous malignancies, during short follow-up period. In addition, ECT dominated other treatment options with a favourable cost-effective ratio.Electrochemotherapy appears to be an effective method of treating subcutaneous melanomas. Further assessment of this technology is no longer warranted and HealthPACT have recommended that this prioritising summary be disseminated to interested parties including the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia (COSA).
