Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) frequently metastasizes to and recurs in regional lymph nodes. Of the two compartments, the central compartment can be dissected through the same wound as the thyroidectomy, and the central node dissection (CND) is routinely performed in most Japanese surgical departments. However, the indications for prophylactic lateral compartment dissection (modified radical neck dissection [MND]) for low-risk PTC remain unclear. In this study, we investigated the… CONTINUE READING
