INTRODUCTION: Total thyroidectomy is one of the most routinely performed head and neck surgical procedures with extremely low mortality. This procedure has been associated with two major complications such as recurrent laryngeal nerve injury and hypocalcaemia due to parathyroid insufficiency. The use of bipolar electrocautery has not been widely accepted in view of thermal damage to adjacent structures. AIM: To study the outcomes and complications of capsular dissection technique along with use of bipolar electrocautery in total thyroidectomy...

The majority of patients who present with well differentiated thyroid cancer will require surgery, but decisions on the appropriate primary procedure will depend on information relating to patient, tumour and surgical factors. As the incidence of thyroid cancer continues to rise, it is critical that clinicians involved in the management of these cases understand the factors which underpin surgical decision making for individual patients. Reporting outcomes in well differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC) has always been challenging due to the low recurrence and mortality rate of the disease...

Thyroidectomy has been used for the treatment of thyroid disease for more than 100 years. In spite of the advancement of surgical techniques, there is still a risk of laryngeal nerve injury. The risk of partial or complete injury still depends on some surgical and disease-related factors. The aim of this study is to show the partial injury and to establish these risk factors via laryngeal electromyographic analysis (LEMG) in postthyroidectomy patients with normal vocal cord motion and mucosal anatomy. Patients who had undergone thyroid surgery were enrolled in this prospective study...
