OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy of fine needle aspiration (FNA) and intraoperative frozen section examination (IFSE) on thyroid nodules. STUDY DESIGN The study group consisted of 470 patients who underwent thyroidectomy. FNA was performed on 289 patients and IFSE on 326. The FNA and IFSE results were compared with the final histologic diagnosis obtained after examination of permanent sections. RESULTS The overall FNA sensitivity was 65%, specificity 88% and positive predictive value 61… CONTINUE READING
