[Remote results of the surgical treatment of patients with diffuse toxic goiter depending on the immunologic status].

Abstract

The work presents results of the surgical treatment of patients with a toxic goiter depending on the initial status of the immune reactivity. It was shown that recurrent thyrotoxicosis or the development of hypothyreosis occurred in patients with the disturbed immune status more frequently. A conclusion is made that the immune disorders should be corrected in patients with diffuse toxic goiters during the preoperative period in order to improve results of the surgical treatment.
