The oncologic outcome of robotic thyroidectomy is not yet well established. The aim of this study was to evaluate the recurrence rate after robotic thyroidectomy in comparison with conventional thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). We analyzed 896 patients with PTC who either underwent robotic (212 patients using a gasless unilateral axillary or an axillo-breast approach) or conventional cervical thyroidectomy (684 patients) with/without central neck dissection between October… CONTINUE READING
