BackgroundEndoscopic thyroidectomy with level II dissection has previously been reported to be performed endoscopically via various approaches. However, very few reports were available regarding level II dissection performed via the breast approach. In this article, we reported a series of 12 papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients with scarless (in the neck) endoscopic thyroidectomy (SET) via breast approach to level II dissection and evaluated its feasibility and safety.MethodsBetween… CONTINUE READING
