Abstract

Several procedures have been proposed for surgical treatment of the thyroid nodule; they have not gained wide acceptance, however, because of the expertise required, the relatively long operation times, the wide dissection needed to create a working space, and the extra cost of specialized instruments, especially when port sites are created in the remote area. These barriers have led some surgeons to perform video-assisted thyroidectomy via the neck. We describe the indications for, procedures related to, and results of both total endoscopic thyroidectomy and video-assisted thyroidectomy via the neck. Excellent cosmetic results were obtained by both procedures; however, video-assisted procedures required less time and a smaller dissection area.
