Laryngeal nerve monitoring and endoscopic thyroidectomy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

After more than 100 years of approaching thyroid surgery in the manner described by Theodore Kocher in the 19th century, thyroidectomy has undergone tremendous change during the past 6 to 8 years. Chief among them have been the development of minimally invasive surgical methods and the emergence of reliable laryngeal nerve monitoring techniques. The author describes a logical approach that exploits these complementary technologies.
