Outcomes of 109 patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma who underwent robotic total thyroidectomy with central node dissection via the bilateral axillo-breast approach.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We developed the bilateral, axillo-breast approach (BABA) to endoscopic thyroidectomy and applied it to the da Vinci robotic surgical system in 2008. Herein, we have analyzed the immediate postoperative outcomes and 1-year follow-up results of robotic BABA total thyroidectomy with central node dissection (CND). METHODS In 2008 and 2009, 109… (More)
