All patients then received a total thyroidectomy and central lymph nodes dissection (with or without lateral lymph nodes dissection).
Nevertheless, PTC frequently metastasizes to level VI (42%) [13] and recurrence in lateral lymph nodes after a total thyroidectomy and Radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy of these cases is present in 4.5% to 24.5% [25-27], which is likely due to the noneffective rate of RAI therapy [28].
According to the pathological examinations, 50 patients (68.5%) were also accompanied with positive central and lateral lymph nodes, 21 patients (28.8%) only with positive lateral lymph nodes, and 2 patients (2.7%) only with positive mediastinal lymph nodes.
Mediastinal lymph node metastases are generally thought to spread from paratracheal or pretracheal lymph nodes and lateral lymph nodes through the lymph circulation [22, 25].
Clinical characteristics and surgical management for both the central and the lateral lymph node metastases have been well described [2].
Central lymph node dissection was performed on 9 patients, lateral lymph node dissection on 19 patients, central and lateral lymph node dissection on 43 patients, and mediastinal lymph node dissection alone on 2 patients who had received central and lateral lymph node dissection in other hospital with no lymph node metastasis in central and lateral regions suspected preoperatively.
[25] -- CLND: central lymph node dissection; LLND: lateral lymph node dissection; MLND: mediastinal lymph node dissection; MLNM: mediastinal lymph node dissection; ETE: extrathyroidal extension; TT: total thyroidectomy; nTT: near total thyroidectomy.
Results: The familial group had a significantly higher risk of bilateral growth, multifocality, extrathyroidal extension, and lateral lymph node metastasis than the sporadic group (P < 0.05).
According to the univariate analysis, the FNMTC group had a significantly higher risk of bilateral growth, multifocality, extrathyroidal extension, and lateral lymph node metastasis than the SNMTC group ( P < 0.05), as shown in [Table 1].
The group with ≥3 affected members had a significantly higher risk of bilateral growth, multifocality, extrathyroidal extension, thyroid nodular goiter, and lateral lymph node metastasis than the SNMTC group ( P < 0.05).{Table 2}
Multivariate analysis revealed that lateral lymph node metastasis was an independent risk factor for the recurrence or persistence of disease in the three-or-more-members group ( P = 0.027).{Figure 1}{Figure 2}
33.3%).[4] A growing number of studies have found that FNMTC has a more invasive tendency, particularly with respect to invasion of the thyroid capsule and perithyroidal tissues.[4],[18] Our study also found that lateral lymph node metastasis was an independent risk factor for the recurrence or persistence of disease in the three-or-more-members group.
