Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) during surgery can result in serious ophthalmic complications. We hypothesized that carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation of the neck during endoscopic thyroidectomy would constrict the jugular veins mechanically, causing elevated venous pressure and thus elevated IOP. We compared IOP changes at each step of open thyroidectomy (OT) versus robot-assisted endoscopic thyroidectomy (RET) Perioperatively, IOP was measured at six time points in patients undergoing OT… CONTINUE READING
