The clinical role of endoscopic thyroidectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for differentiated thyroid cancer remains open to debate. Conventional thyroidectomy requires a cervical incision and often leaves an unsightly scar on the anterior neck. Endoscopic thyroidectomy is technically feasible and safe, with much better cosmetic results. The prognostic importance of lymph node metastasis in thyroid cancer makes central lymph node dissection a crucial option in thyroid cancer surgery. However, it is associated with an increased risk of complications such as recurrent laryngeal nerve injury or hypoparathyroidism, even in expert hands. Thus, the feasibility and future role of SLNB in thyroid cancer remains controversial. We describe our technique of performing endoscopic thyroidectomy with SLNB and central lymph node dissection via a gasless anterior chest approach for thyroid cancer.
We investigate the current status of endoscopic thyroidectomy in Korea. A representative questionnaire was sent to 21 members of the Korean Association of Endocrine Surgeons who were thought to be performing endoscopic thyroidectomy. All the reply letters were collected and analyzed. The response rate was 95%. A total of 1616 cases of endoscopic thyroidectomy were performed from the year 1998 to the year 2005. The patients included 71 men and 1545 women, with a mean age of 36.17 years. The mean operation time was 124.18 minutes and overall length of hospital stay was 4.31 days. Thyroid lobectomy and nodular hyperplasia were the most common procedures and prominent pathologic findings. Axillary approach was the most popular operative approach method. Gas insufflation and skin-lifting gasless method were used in 800 cases and 816 cases, respectively. Postoperative complication rate was 14.2%. Skin paresthesia was the most common complication. Conversion rate to conventional thyroidectomy was 2.2%. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Assessment of the morbidity and complications of total thyroidectomy. AU - Bhattacharyya, Neil. AU - Fried, Marvin P.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Objective: To determine the incidence and predictive factors for complications after total thyroidectomy. Design: Cross-sectional analysis of a national database on total thyroidectomy cases. Methods: The National Hospital Data Survey database was examined and all cases of total thyroidectomy performed during 1995 to 1999 were extracted. In addition to demographic information, postoperative complications including hypocalcemia, recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis, wound complications, and medical morbidities were identified. Statistical analysis was conducted to determine potential predictive factors for postoperative complications. Results: A total of 517 patients were identified (mean age, 48.3 years). The most common indications for total thyroidectomy were thyroid malignancy and goiter (73.9% of cases). Eighty-one patients (15.7%) ...

Adhesions post thyroidectomy - What are good diets after thyroidectomy? Why thyroidectomy? Hi. Was it thyroid cancer? Most likely reason for total thyroidectomy. Best diet: healthy one! Whole grains, nuts, legumes, fruits & veggies, healthy oils (canola & olive), lean meats, nonfat dairy; little or no white flour, white rice, simple sugar, high fructose corn syrup. Best of luck with your thyroid cancer!
Neck haematoma following thyroid surgery can present with respiratory distress which is generally attributed to airway obstruction. We recently had a 63-year-old female patient who underwent total thyroidectomy for toxic nodular goitre. However, within 4 hours of surgery, she developed sudden respiratory distress which was managed by prompt evacuation of the neck haematoma. Just before the haematoma evacuation, the patient had hypertension and bradycardia along with the distress. The arterial blood gas analysis sampled at that time was normal. Intraoperatively, the tracheal framework was found rigid and non-pliable. Considering the various clinical-biochemical findings observed, we think that the cause of the respiratory distress in the index case was transiently elevated intracranial pressure, secondary to bilateral internal jugular veins compression. We hypothesise that in many patients with immediate postoperative neck haematoma, the Cushings reflex would at least contribute partly, if not ...

In Western society, the percentage of elderly people is continually growing. The prevalence of goiter increases with the age and it is estimated that 90% of women over 60 years old and 60% of men over 80 years old have a relief of thyroid nodules. This has great importance for these patients, because the incidence of malignant transformation is higher than younger ones and these are often tumor very aggressive patterns. If thyroidectomy is indicated for patients with suspected neoplasm and severe obstructive symptoms, their surgery should not be delayed since a late urgent operation could raise morbidity and mortality risk. The main indications for young patients are due to obstructive and metabolic causes over and above suspected cancer.. Total thyroidectomy is considered by many authors as the treatment of choice. ...
When certain conditions interfere with normal thyroid production, surgical removal of the thyroid gland is performed. This is usually done when thyroid cancer has been detected, an otherwise benign thyroid nodule grows so large it causes problems or hyperthyroidism (a disorder in which excess thyroid hormone is produced) does not respond to treatment with medications or radioactive iodine, though this is rare.. Thyroid surgery is known as a thyroidectomy. Two types of procedures are performed: a total thyroidectomy to remove the entire gland or a subtotal thyroidectomy, which removes part of the gland.. In a total thyroidectomy, the entire gland and surrounding lymph nodes are removed. The patient is given drugs to suppress thyroid hormone production, in addition to radioactive iodine. A subtotal thyroidectomy involves removal of one complete gland and part of the other, which is usually reserved for treating hyperthyroidism caused by Graves disease.. The effectiveness of any surgical thyroid ...

Long-term follow-up was completed in 616 patients (491 females). A total of 365 patients had thyroid cancer, 169 had benign tumors, and 82 had diffuse goiters with Graves disease. The percentage of patients who complained about neck discomfort (FBST >2) was 29.4% before surgery. A preoperative high FBST showed a significant direct correlation with a high SDS, but thyroid volume did not. A postoperative high FBST was seen in 75.3% of patients at two days and 78.9% at one month after surgery, and it then gradually decreased to 49.3% at 12 months after surgery. At three days after the operation, the median FBST was significantly higher in patients who had total thyroidectomy with lateral neck dissection or total thyroidectomy only compared to those who had lobectomy only (p < 0.05). These differences were still present 12 months after surgery. A higher preoperative SDS score was also identified as an independent predictor for a high FBST at 12 months after surgery, but not at one or three months ...

I would like your opinion regarding a 63 year old lady with well differentiated follicular variant papillary carcinoma (3.7cm) with mediastinal metastases.. She presented in August 2005 with thyrotoxicosis (TSH ,0.04, FT3 6.3, normal FT4) and subsequent tests demonstrated a dominant left thyroid nodule (3 cm) and nondominant nodule in the right lobe (,3mm) with increased tracer uptake in the left hemi-thyroid. Anti-TP0 were present in low titers at 81 IU/ml ( 0-60). As needle cytology of the left nodule favoured oncocytic proliferation she had left hemi-thyroidectomy in September. Unfortunately, the pathology revealed a 37mm well differentiated thyroid carcinoma displaying mixed follicular and papillary features, with focal full thickness capsular penetration. A completion thyroidectomy was performed in early December with no evidence of residual malignancy in the right thyroid lobe.. She received ablative RAI (3.55GBq of Iodine-131 orally) 7 weeks after completion thyroidectomy, however, the ...

After total thyroidectomy all thyroid cancer patients require lifelong treatment with thyroid hormones; the treatment of choice is synthetic levothyroxine (LT4). The question of whether these patients might benefit from the combined LT4 and liothyronine (LT3) treatment has been addressed with conflicting conclusions. The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of combined low LT4=LT3 molar ratio therapy versus LT4 monotherapy on various target organs and tissues in patients thyroidectomized for thyroid cancer. Urine collection (24 hour), a fasting blood sample for laboratory examinations, thyroid function clinical score, and cardiovascular, neurological, and neuropsychological evaluations were obtained. Clinical parameters and peripheral markers of thyroid function were measured during the two different treatment regimens in 20 patients. Mean serum aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, sex hormone binding globulin, and osteocalcin values were significantly higher ...

Thyroid hormones (THs) as a therapeutic intervention to treat obesity has been tried but the effect of THs on body weight and the mechanistic details of which are far from clear. This study was designed to determine and elucidate the mechanistic details of metabolic action of THs in high-fat diet (HFD) fed Sprague Dawley (SD) rats. Rats were made surgically hypothyroid (thyroidectomy, Thx). Body weights and food and water intake profoundly decreased in HFD fed thyroidectomized group (HN Thx). Results showed that delayed insulin response, increased total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, and low density lipoprotein in HN Thx. Unexpectedly, however, Thx reduced serum and hepatic triglyceride concentrations. Further studies revealed that Thx dramatically increased circulating GLP-1 as well as increased expressions of GLP-1 in small intestine. Diminished hepatic expressions of lipogenic genes, were observed in HN Thx group. Beta-catenin and glutamine synthetase, a known target of beta-catenin, ...
I have a 21 year old who presented with a 3.6 cm Left thyroid mass, TFTs were normal, TG and TPO antibodies were negative. The right lobe did not show any nodules but she had a calcified LN measuring 1.8 cm with no fatty hilum. She underwent left hemithyroidectomy and final pathology was reviewed at Mayo clinic by Dr.Gary Keeney and signed out as as benign follicular adenoma with background of Hashimotos thyroiditis. The right LN was biopsied after the surgery ( I ordered a repeat US post hemithyroidectomy 6 months later to evaluate the contralateral lobe and the right LN with calcification was seen and radiology suggested FNA) and the FNA result now showed follicular cells with minimal nuclear pleomorphism, and cells with abundant cytoplasm consistent with Hurthle cell differentiation. Is it possible to have thyroid tissue in a LN in the absence of malignancy? Im thinking of sending her for excision of the LN but what about the right lobe? Recent US now showed a 8 mm nodule on the right. ...

I hope your consultation went well. From my experience the urgency of surgery was based on the size of the tumor. I had a large tumor, (4.7 cm) so my doctor recommended surgery within 6 weeks. If your nodule is small, your Dr. may not see the urgency to have surgery in the next 2 months. If so, I would check if he/she would recommend scheduling surgery shortly after the wedding. Fine needle biopsies are often inconclusive for cancer. Even if they see Hurthle cells it may or may not be cancer. Surgery is the most reliable way to determine if a tumor is benign or not. Is your Dr. recommending a partial thyroidectomy or total? My doctors recommended a partial (right lobe where the tumor was). I had surgery at the end of July. While I was under, they did a frozen section test for cancer. Had cancer been found, they would have completed a total thyroidectomy at that time.. The frozen section biopsies are not completely reliable either. After my surgery I went home and recouperated for a week. The ...

The relationship between Hashimotos thyroiditis and PTC has been a subject of considerable controversy for many decades. The authors of this meta-analysis suggest that PTC is significantly associated with pathologically confirmed HT. Although the incidence of HT is increased in patients with PTC, there has been no evidence suggesting a cause-effect relationship between the two entities. Paradoxically, patients with PTC and concurrent HT have significantly favorable outcomes. Could the immune reaction have a tumor-retarding effect on the PTC instead of being a predisposing factor?. The present study, though comprehensive, has a few shortcomings. It analyzed patients with already diagnosed PTC and calculated the frequency of HT in these cases. It does not explore the risk of PTC developing in patients with HT. Thus, the design of the study creates a considerable bias due to patient selection. The study population consisted of only cases of thyroidectomy, which is not reflective of the general ...
Fifteen prepubertal male rats (age 30 days) were divided into three groups of five each: Group 1, hypothyroid (Tx)--rats were thyroidectomized at day 30; Group 2, T4 (L-thyroxine) replacement therapy (Tx+T4)--rats were thyroidectomized at day 30 and treated daily i.m. with T4 (6 micrograms/100 g body weight/day) for 30 days from day 31 to day 60 post-thyroidectomy (age 90 days); Group 3, control--rats were sham-operated and treated with vehicle. The rats from all groups were killed on day 61 post-thyroidectomy or post-sham operation (age 91 days). The serum levels of testosterone, T4 and T3 decreased in the Tx group (p | 0.001). In the Tx+T4 group the levels of T4 and T3 were restored to control values, whereas testosterone levels remained lower than in the control group. Hypothyroidism caused various changes in the levels of epididymal phospholipids and neutral lipids. These were restored differentially or were altered further in the Tx+T4 group. The number and forward motility of spermatozoa,
In accordance with the increased utilization of ultrasonography, the worldwide incidence of thyroid nodules and carcinoma has progressively increased in recent decades [5]. Because the incidence of thyroid carcinoma in young women is rapidly increasing, cosmesis plays an important role in thyroid operations. In addition to improving the cosmetic results, endoscopic thyroidectomy can reduce the postoperative hospital stay and postoperative pain. Thus, various endoscopic thyroid surgical approaches have been performed, including cervical [6], anterior chest wall [7], axilla [8, 9], axilla-breast [10, 11], and breast [12, 13]. While endoscopic thyroid surgery has advantages over other techniques, endoscopic thyroid surgery presents disadvantages for surgeons with limited experience. These disadvantages include a longer learning curve, longer operation time, and the potential for more severe injuries compared to the conventional procedure; however, these disadvantages can be overcome by experienced ...
Thyroid surgery, either partial thyroidectomy or thyroidectomy is sometimes performed to remove all or part of the thyroid gland, if cancer is found or suspected, if there is a large goiter, and in some cases as a treatment for hyperthyroidism.

A thyroidectomy could be a partial or total removal of your thyroid gland. Your thyroid is part of your endocrine system and regulates metabolism. After having your thyroid removed, you will need to take replacement thyroid hormones to boost your metabolism and keep other systems functioning.

Sorry to hear you are also experiencing thyroid woes! As for surgery, it was no biggie. I had a great surgeon, Dr. D.W. Anderson, who is very experienced with these operations. He told me it would be Day Surgery and that after a hemi, I would be okay to go home the same day. They of course keep you for the minimum 4 hours at the hospital for observations and to see how youre doing. I dont know the protocol for a full thyroidectomy. You would have to talk to your surgeon. I noticed in the States, thyroidectomies require overnight or several days stays at the hospital but I would imagine it depends on the individual circumstances and the age and health of the patient too. I am younger than most thyroidectomy patients(according to doc). And in good general health otherwise. In Vancouver Canada though, a hemithyroidectomy is not as big a deal I guess and I am surprised at how well I was able to recuperate. You definately need to stay at home and rest up, not do any heavy lifting and such for at ...
