: High quality thyroid surgery implies a surgeon with an endocrine-surgical understanding aiming at best possible outcome. This includes an appropriate extent of the resection and a low rate of complications. It is important that the surgeon is involved at an early stage being part of the decision process for or against partial or total thyroidectomy. Furthermore, the surgeon should not only be able to perform thyroid and cervical lymph node sonography, but also to be capable to interpret cross-...

Abstract Background The objective of this study was to determine if the laryngeal twitch response, when compared to neuromonitoring, can predict postoperative vocal cord function and can thus be used in case of technical failure of the EMG-recording electrode. Methods A total of 640 nerves at risk were included in this study based on a prospective protocol. The laryngeal twitch response and the EMG-records were compared with the results of the postoperative laryngoscopy. Results Of the 640 nerve...

Abstract Background Injury of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and consequent disorder of vocal fold movement is a typical complication in thyroid and parathyroid surgery. During postoperative laryngoscopy we observed not only a complete standstill (vocal fold paralysis), but also a hypomobility (paresis). In this prospective study, we investigated the difference in incidence and prognosis as well as risk-factors, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and symptoms between vocal fold paralysis and vocal f...
