However, due to the dissatisfaction of her visitors, she only underwent total thyroidectomy
Methods: Between January 2012 and December 2016, 255 patients were scheduled to undergo total thyroidectomy
at Surgical Clinic Nis.
Therefore, the decision was made to perform a pseudoaneurysm resection and total thyroidectomy
She came to our department to undergo total thyroidectomy
with lymph node dissection, which is the standard surgical management for papillary carcinoma.
Patients had undergone either a hemithyroidectomy, a subtotal thyroidectomy, or a total thyroidectomy
based on pre- and intraoperative find ings.
All patients need sub-total or total Thyroidectomy
6) According to the American Thyroid Association, treatment of PTC includes total or near total thyroidectomy
if any of the following is present: contralateral thyroid nodules, regional or distant metastases, personal history of head and neck radiation, or a first-degree family history of thyroid cancer.
Bilateral subtotal thyroidectomy was performed in 71 cases (68%), unilateral subtotal thyroidectomy in 13 (12%), unilateral total thyroidectomy
in 6 (6%), bilateral total thyroidectomy
in 6 (6%), nodule excision in 3 (3%) and completion thyroidectomy for recurrent goiter in 5(5%) cases.
2-6) A recent Cochrane review comparing total or near total thyroidectomy
versus subtotal thyroidectomy for multinodular nontoxic goitre in adults concluded that goitre recurrence was lower for total thyroidectomy
compared to subtotal thyroidectomy.
All patients diagnosed with WDTC and total thyroidectomy
who had undergone therapeutic and/or sequential diagnostic whole-body radioiodine studies and Tg measurements during the study period were included.
In this case report we describe the cytologic findings of thyroid papillary carcinoma metastasizing to the breast, after 24 years following total thyroidectomy
along with histologic confirmation.
Radical surgical treatment like total thyroidectomy
and radical neck dissection gives no added advantage over less radical surgical treatment or non surgical treatment12 .
