In this opinion paper of the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation, leading experts in the field report on their current clinical experience with a novel approach for thyroid gland surgery, namely, "transoral thyroidectomy" (TOT). This feasible and novel surgical procedure does not require visible incisions and is, therefore, a truly scarless surgery. Patients meeting the following criteria can be considered as candidates for TOT: (a) an ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid diameter ≤10 cm; (b) US-estimated gland volume ≤45 mL; (c) nodule size ≤50 mm; (d) presence of a benign tumor such as a thyroid cyst or a single- or multi-nodular goiter; (e) Bethesda 3 and/or 4 category and (f) papillary microcarcinoma without the evidence of metastasis...

INTRODUCTION: Increasing emphasis is being placed on appropriateness of care and avoidance of over- and under-treatment. Indeterminate thyroid nodules (ITN), present a particular risk for this problem because cancer found via diagnostic lobectomy (DL) often requires a completion thyroidectomy (CT). However, initial total thyroidectomy (TT) for benign ITN results in lifelong thyroid hormone replacement. We sought to measure the accuracy and factors associated with the extent of initial thyroidectomy for ITN...

BACKGROUND: The most appropriate surgical procedure for multinodular goiter (MNG) remains under debate. Incidental thyroid carcinoma (ITC) is often identified on histopathological examination after thyroidectomy performed for presumed benign MNG. AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to determine the value of radical surgery for MNG patients considering the prevalence of ITC diagnosed postoperatively. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted retrospective analysis of the medical records of 2,306 patients surgically treated for MNG between 2008 and 2013 at one center...

BACKGROUND: Substernal thyrotoxic multinodular goiter (MNG) shows signs and symptoms as a result of compression of adjacent organs and thyrotoxicosis. However, acute airway obstruction is rarely caused by substernal thyrotoxic MNG. CASE REPORT: We have described a 56-year-old Japanese woman who demonstrated acute airway obstruction because of compression of the airway by substernal thyrotoxic MNG. She had been diagnosed with substernal thyrotoxic MNG 6 years back...

The definition of substernal goiter (SG) is based on variable criteria leading to a considerable variation in the reported incidence (from 0.2% to 45%). The peri- and postoperative complications are higher in total thyroidectomy (TT) for SG than that for cervical goiter. The aim of this study was to evaluate the preoperative risk factors associated with postoperative complications. From 2002 to 2014, 142 (8.5%; 98 women and 44 men) of the 1690 patients who underwent TT had a SG. We retrospectively evaluated the following parameters: sex, age, histology, pre- and retrovascular position, recurrence, and extension beyond the carina...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has a high metastatic potential, and most commonly metastasizes via the bloodstream, although lymphatic metastases also occur. RCC is well-known for its propensity to metastasize to unusual sites, and late metastasis, even after a number of years, is common. The occurrence of RCC metastasis to the head and neck region is uncommon, and occurs primarily in the thyroid gland and in patients with widespread dissemination. Involvement of the parathyroid gland in metastatic carcinoma is extremely rare...

PURPOSE: Since intrathoracic goiters (IG), either cervico-mediastinal goiters (CMGs) or mediastinal nodules (MNs), can lead to sternotomies and/or evitable reoperations, their detection is mandatory before thyroid surgery. A systematic screening by CT scan or MRI is not conceivable because of their expensiveness. We tested if conventional chest radiography (CCR) could remain a good screening tool for IG before thyroid surgery. METHODS: In this retrospective study (2554 patients), CCR usefulness was evaluated in relation with patients' complaints, clinical examination, neck US, and anatomical and surgical findings...

REVIEW
Beata Wojtczak, Marcin Barczyński
Reoperative thyroid surgery is still challenging even for skilled surgeons, and is associated with a higher incidence of complications, such as hypoparathyroidism and recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) palsy. Displacement of the RLN, scar tissue from previous neck surgery and difficulty in maintaining good hemostasis are risk factors in reoperations. The prevalence of RLN injury in reoperative thyroid surgery ranges as high as 12.5% for transient injury and up to 3.8% for permanent injury. Bilateral paresis can also occur during reoperations, and is a dangerous complication influencing the quality of life, sometimes requiring tracheostomy...

Primary thyroid lymphomas account for less than 5% of all thyroid malignancies and the majority of cases concern non- Hodgkin's lymphoma of B and T-cell origin as well as Hodgkin's lymphoma. Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma are a relatively recently described subset of low grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma representing between 6 and 27% of the patients with thyroid lymphomas. These cases occur usually in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis having a long indolent course and delayed diagnosis, actually benefit from several therapeutic opportunities among them even surgery and a favorable prognostic...

The involvement of the inferior or recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) in mobility derangement of the vocal folds occurs more frequently due to thyroid malignancy invasion. Although uncommon, the same derangement, which is caused by benign thyroid entities, is also described and reverts to normality after a thyroidectomy in up to 89% of cases. In these cases, the pathogenesis of the vocal cord mobility disturbance is attributed to the direct compression of the RLN by massive thyroid enlargement. The authors describe three cases of patients presenting unilateral vocal cord palsy, which, before surgery, was diagnosed by laryngoscopy concomitantly with large and compressive goiter...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid ultrasound (US) elastography provides an estimation of tissue stiffness and is helpful to differentiate malignant from benign lesions. Tissue proprieties and molecules causing stiffness are not established. The aim of the study was to correlate US elastography findings with tissue properties in thyroid nodules. METHODS: A total of 115 thyroid nodules from 112 patients who underwent surgery for the presence of Thy 3 (indeterminate) cytology (n = 67), Thy 4-5 (suspicious-indicative of carcinoma) cytology (n = 47), or large goiter in the presence of Thy 2 cytology (n = 1) and suspicious US features were examined by US elastography...
