Transoral thyroid surgery feasible in select patients
from MedPage Today
Transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy may be a safe alternative to open thyroidectomy (OT) for some patients, especially those who want to avoid neck scars, according to a study from Thailand. The study compared the transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach (TOETVA) to the standard open thyroidectomy and found the new approach took more time but caused patients less postoperative pain.
