BACKGROUND The most frequent postthyroidectomy complication is recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) damage with subsequent vocal cord palsy. METHODS We have undertaken an intraoperative study aimed to determine the course, distribution, and RLN's anatomical relationships with adjacent structures. Only its identification and its careful exposure allow prevention of iatrogenic injuries. RESULTS The RLN was always routinely exposed and identified in 1,543 thyroidectomies. All patients underwent… CONTINUE READING
