Comprehensive Lateral Neck Dissection

  Systematic compartmental clearance of regional lymph nodes is crucial in obtaining long term control of metastatic differentiated carcinoma of the thyroid gland in regional lymph nodes. This video demonstrates systematic and comprehensive clearance of regional lymph nodes from levels II thru V,  in the lateral neck of a patient with metastatic papillary carcinoma of […]

Novel use of Continuous Vagus Stimulation in a Robotic Transaxillary Thyroidectomy

  This 44-year-old patient previously underwent a robotic–assisted right thyroid lobectomy and was found to have papillary carcinoma. She had another suspicious nodule (2.1cm) on the left side that continued to grow and the FNA biopsy Showed follicular lesion of undetermined significance. The video illustrates the steps of flap creation. Then illustrated the steps of placing the APS electrodes on the vagus nerve for continuous vagal stimulation to recognize early stretch. Initial stimulation of the Vagus nerve revealed […]
