Abstract

We sought to describe a series of novel surgical maneuvers, some of which are facilitated by new technology, that have transformed the way in which a modern thyroidectomy is currently performed. A systematic identification of new surgical techniques that have been introduced during the past 3 to 5 years were identified. Several new surgical maneuvers were observed, and these were stratified into discrete components of a thyroidectomy procedure, including presurgical, intraoperative, and postsurgical. The advent of several new technologies, combined with an increased understanding of the relevant surgical anatomy, has facilitated a series of novel surgical maneuvers that represent important elements in a modern thyroidectomy. Some of these techniques are particularly helpful in minimally invasive thyroid surgery.
