[Surgical treatment of local-expanded forms of thyroid carcinoma].

Abstract

An analysis of surgical treatment of 377 patients with advanced thyroid carcinoma is presented. The work included 82 combined, 90 expanded and 218 palliative operations (as well as 68 shave-resections). In 56 cases surgical interventions were two-or three-staged. This approach improved the immediate results and did not change the long-term results of treatment. It was shown that surgical treatment in advanced thyroid carcinoma gave good results in the majority of cases (recovery or long-term palliation). Combined and expanded operations were non effective in anaplastic thyroid carcinoma. In well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma the 10-year survival was noted in 70.2% of patients.
