Mini-Sternotomy for thyroid surgery is a useful approach for mediastinal and retrosternal goitres. A mini-sternotomy involves a midline osteotomy from the sternal notch down the manubrium to the second intercostal space, where a second horizontal osteotomy is performed. A thyroidectomy is attempted first via a cervical approach, before a powered saw is used to make […]

Background: Extrathyroidal spread with invasion of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and metastatic disease to the mediastinum are two manifestations of aggressive papillary thyroid cancer. These videos outline useful surgical adjuncts to the management of recurrent laryngeal nerve sacrifice from invasive disease and mediastinal lymphadenopathy without the need for sternotomy. Methods: Video was created using iPhone […]

Toetva is a rapidly accepted option for thyroid resection. Indications are broader and thyroid tumors are not a contra indication in most initial cases. In addition, central compartment neck dissection can be safely executable at the same time of the thyroidectomy. Hence, more challenging procedures are growing to be frequent thus demanding the surgeon to […]

Background: Conventional operations for thyroidectomy adopted trans-cervical scar which was disfiguring and caused postoperative morbidities. Different techniques of scarless thyroidectomies have been described by various authors.1-2 The advent of surgical robots has provided a newer approach to performing minimally invasive head & neck surgeries.2-4 Method: We define a new technique of performing robotic thyroidectomy called […]

To hide neck scarring, various remote access thyroidectomy procedures using surgical robots or endoscopy have been developed, using axillary, breast, postauicular facelift or transoral approaches. Recently, transoral thyroidectomy has been increasingly adopted, and it is considered a form of true natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES), and is less invasive in terms of working space […]

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Significant innovations in thyroid surgery, such as microsurgical technique, are well standardized. However, thyroidectomy is still not free from complications related to recurrent laryngeal nerves and parathyroid glands injury. The purpose of this video is to demonstrate the advantages delivering from a tridimensional approach with Robotic Visualization System (RVS) as a support to traditional […]
