Neck Dissection in the Surgical Treatment of Thyroid Cancer

Ahmad M. Eltelety, David J Terris

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing, largely attributable to overdetection related to prevalent diagnostic and radiologic imaging modalities. Papillary thyroid cancer remains the most common thyroid malignancy. It has a high tendency for regional metastasis to the cervical lymph nodes. The optimal management of the neck in patients with thyroid carcinoma has long been an important topic of debate. This article addresses central and lateral neck dissection, providing a simplified guide to the most up-to-date and evidence-based practices.
