Substernal thyroidectomy: The transcervical approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Substernal thyroid goiters that require surgery may pose unique challenges to thyroid surgeons based on the size and inferior extent of the disease. Consequently, there are multiple variations to the approach and additional considerations in operative planning and technique that are often required. Although there is some debate on the precise definition of substernal thyroid, for the purposes of this article it is considered to be thyroid tissue below the sternal notch or clavicle. This article aims to provide thyroid surgeons who encounter the challenges of substernal thyroid a straightforward algorithm for planning and operative techniques that have proven successful in the safe and effective management of this condition.
