Ethan Frank, Joshua Park, Alfred Simental, Christopher Vuong, Yuan Liu, Daniel Kwon, Yi Lin, Pedro Andrade Filho
Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) has gained acceptance as an alternative to conventional thyroidectomy. This technique results in less bleeding, postoperative pain, shorter recovery time, and better cosmetic results without increasing morbidity. We retrospectively assessed outcomes in 583 patients having MIVAT from May 2005 to September 2014. The study population was divided into groups according to periods: 2005 to 2009 and 2010 to 2014. Operative data, complications, and length of stay were collected and compared...

OBJECTIVES: Thyroid conditions are common, and their incidence is increasing. Surgery is the mainstay treatment for many thyroid conditions, and understanding its utilisation trends and morbidity is central to improving patient care. DESIGN: An N = near-all analysis of the English administrative dataset to identify trends in thyroid surgery specialisation, volume-outcome relationships, and the incidence and risk factors for short- and long-term morbidity. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Between 2004 and 2012, 72 594 patients underwent elective thyroidectomy in England...

BACKGROUND: Concern for postoperative complications causing airway compromise has limited widespread acceptance of ambulatory thyroid surgery. We evaluated differences in outcomes and hospital costs in those monitored for a short stay of 6 h (SS), inpatient observation of 6-23 h (IO), or inpatient admission of >23 h (IA). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing thyroidectomy from 2006 to 2012. The incidence of postoperative hemorrhage, nerve dysfunction, and hypocalcemia were evaluated, as well as cost data comparing the SS and IO groups...

BACKGROUND: Unplanned 30-day readmission and emergency department (ED)/general practitioner (GP) visit after thyroidectomy are important healthcare quality measures and may reduce any cost savings from performing it as a short-stay (<24-h admission) procedure. Our study aimed to examine the incidence, cause, and risk factors for unplanned 30-day readmissions and ED/GP visits together following short-stay thyroidectomy. METHODS: One-thousand and four patients who underwent short-stay thyroidectomy were reviewed...

Hospitalizing patients up to 72 hours after thyroidectomy is a classical approach. However, the length of hospitalization has decreased following surgical procedures with new technological devices. Seven hundred one consecutive patients who underwent sutureless total thyroidectomy (STT) between October 2011 and 2013 were included in this study. Six hundred seventy-two (95.9%) were discharged before 24 hours following surgery (short-stay = SS), and 29 were discharged later (delayed-discharge = DD). This study aims to assess short-stay STT with early postoperative complications and readmission to hospital...

INTRODUCTION: The main barriers to short stay thyroidectomy are haemorrhage, bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy causing respiratory compromise and hypocalcaemia. This study assessed the safety and effectiveness of thyroidectomy as a 23-hour stay procedure. METHODS: All patients undergoing total or completion thyroidectomy were prescribed calcium and vitamin D3 supplements following surgery. Retrospective analysis identified patients admitted for longer than 23 hours and any readmissions...

INTRODUCTION: In many facilities, drains are routinely inserted after thyroidectomy with the aim of preventing hematoma formation and accumulation of seroma. The continued use of drains may be based more on tradition rather than proven scientific evidence. OBJECTIVE: To assess the benefit of drain use after thyroidectomy by determining; length of hospital stay, post operative pain and wound sepsis. METHODS: This was a randomized controlled trial, carried out at a tertiary national referral hospital (Mulago, Kampala)...

BACKGROUND: Patients traditionally recover overnight on a general surgery ward after a thyroidectomy; however, these units often lack the efficiency and focus for rapid discharge, which is the goal of a short-stay (SS) unit. Using an SS unit for thyroidectomy patients, who are often discharged in <24 h, may reduce the duration of hospital stay and subsequently decrease associated costs and increase hospital bed and resource availability. METHODS: A retrospective review of 400 patients undergoing thyroidectomy at a single academic hospital...

BACKGROUND: There is controversy in the literature about whether robotic total thyroidectomy should be performed through unilateral or bilateral axillary incisions. The aim of this study was to perform a detailed critical analysis of the single-incision technique with a focus on postoperative pain, morbidity, and oncologic outcomes. METHODS: Between June 2009 and May 2012, 30 patients underwent robotic neck surgery through a single axillary incision. The perioperative outcomes of 16 patients who underwent robotic total thyroidectomy were compared with 30 consecutive patients undergoing conventional total thyroidectomy...

We report our prospective experience of short-stay hospitalisation for benign thyroid surgery. Post-operative outcome, complication rate and duration of hospitalisation were evaluated for 200 similar patients with bilateral multi-nodular goitres treated surgically by total thyroidectomy. All subjects gave written informed consent. A short-stay regimen, with discharge within 24 h of admission, was possible in 92.5 %. Fourteen (7 %) were discharged on the second post-operative day and one on the fourth post-operative day...

OBJECTIVE: : Intrathoracic thyroid goiter is an uncommon condition. Most goiters are found in the superior and anterior mediastinum, which can be removed either through a cervical approach or through a combined cervicotomy and sternotomy approach. Extension of the goiter into the posterior mediastinum is even less common. Transcervival approach to thyroid goiters in the posterior mediastinum can be difficult, necessitating a thoracotomy, with its associated morbidity. METHODS: : A 69-year-old patient underwent robotic assisted minimally invasive procedure, with the daVinci surgical robotic system to excise a thyroid goiter that extended into the posterior mediastinum...

BACKGROUND: Huge goiters are common in iodine-deficient endemic regions. They are of concern to the surgeons because of the anticipated risk of difficult dissection and increased chances of surgical complications. Similarly, they are of concern to the anesthesiologists because of anticipated intubation-related difficulties and post-thyroidectomy tracheomalacia. In the present study we aimed to present our experience of managing goiters based on their gross weight, highlighting their clinicopathological profile, perioperative airway-related difficulties, and management of surgical morbidity...

OBJECTIVE: To develop statistical prediction tools to select patients for short-stay thyroidectomy based on dynamic quantification of individual risk for postoperative hypocalcemia. DESIGN: Clinical and biochemical factors that could influence postoperative calcium levels were analyzed. A multivariable logistic regression model was used to study the predictive ability of each variable for hypocalcemia. A step-down model reduction selection method was used to rank the predictors according to their predictive accuracy...
