The ideal surgical approach for differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTC) is a matter for debate. Total (TT) or near total (NT) thyroidectomy on one side, and lobectomy (LL) or lobo-isthmusectomy (LI) on the other side are the options. Extended (TT, NT) resections are preferable for several reasons, and LL or LI are preferred by some groups. Our 10-year experience indicates that the post-operative complications percentage may be low enough to make TT the preferred surgical option.

Abstract

The ideal surgical approach for differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTC) is a matter for debate. Total (TT) or near total (NT) thyroidectomy on one side, and lobectomy (LL) or lobo-isthmusectomy (LI) on the other side are the options. Extended (TT, NT) resections are preferable for several reasons, and LL or LI are preferred by some groups. Our 10-year experience indicates that the post-operative complications percentage may be low enough to make TT the preferred surgical option.
