The purpose of this research study was to assess the safety and surgical outcomes of endoscopic thyroidectomy applied via a unilateral axillobreast approach with CO2 insufflation to one-sided benign thyroid tumors in Vietnam. Only 1 patient of the 50 (2%) had a postoperative hematoma at the surgery site. Open surgical conversions did not occur. The duration of postoperative drainage was from 3 to 8 days, or 4.86±1.24 days on average. The length of stay in the hospital after surgery was 4 to 9 days, or 5.9±1.2 days on average. The postoperative pain in the first postoperative days was lower in intensity compar...

We investigated the analgesic efficacy of bilateral superficial cervical plexus block in the intraoperative and postoperative periods. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients (n = 46) undergoing thyroidectomy were randomly separated into the following 2 groups: the General Anesthesia Group (GA; n = 23) and the general anesthesia plus BSCPB Group (GS; n = 23). The in...

OJECTIVES: The aim was to evaluate the ability of bilateral superficial cervical plexus blockade to control pain and to reduce the side effects of general anesthesia in patients submitted to thyroidectomy. METHODS: In this randomized controlled trial, we prospectively studied 100 consecutive patients who underwent total thyroidectomy. The simple random patient sample was divided into two groups: 50 patients received general anesthesia alone (group 1 [G1]), and 50 patients received general anesthesia with bilateral superficial cervical plexus blockade (group 2 [G2]). Statistical analyses were performed, and a 5% significanc...

This study raises the possibility of a role for surgery for patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis who continue to feel poorly despite optimal treatment with thyroid hormone. However, the study, while well done, is a relatively small one. We need longer-term follow up and confirmation with additional studies done on diverse populations. It’s also important to consider that thyroid surgery in patients with advanced Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is difficult. Rates of complications, including injury to the laryngeal nerve (which controls voice) and the parathyroid glands (which maintain normal blood calcium levels...

Conclusions: Pain on postoperative day 0 was lesser in the BRT than in the OT group. Similarly, the severity of nausea was lesser in the BRT group, despite longer operation time and broad dissection performed for docking the robotic arms.

Conclusion: This study showed that cervical KT application following thyroidectomy does not have a positive effect on neck pain, ROM, or disability, but nonetheless, it reduces analgesic consumption. PMID: 31340634 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
