Summary of "Diagnostic utility of touch imprint cytology for intraoperative assessment of surgical margins and sentinel lymph nodes in oral squamous cell carcinoma patients using four different cytological stains."

OSCC is most commonly associated with positive surgical margins. The important cause of loco regional recurrence is histologically positive or closed margins. Clear surgical margins might favor the patient with a better prognosis and prevent repetitive surgeries. The present study was designed to the diagnostic utility of touch imprint (TI) smears using H and E, Pap, Giemsa and Feulgen stains, so that they can be used on a routine basis.
