The recurrence rate for thyroglossal duct cysts after a Sistrunk operation is 5% compared with 20% if the hyoid cartilage is not removed.13 The recurrence rate after Sistrunk operation was seen in 8% patients in our series compared to higher rates of 12.1%,1115.8% 17and 24%.9 This positive outcome may be due to the adequate hyoid bone resection and removal of persistent infra or suprahyoid tract remnants in cases of recurrent thyroglossal duct cysts.
