This video demonstrates the technique of video-assisted thyroid lobectomy in a patient with nodules. The surgeon uses a 1.5 cm skin crease incision in the middle of the neck to gain access to the thyroid space and under video-assisted vision to identify the key structures including the thyroid vascular pedicles and the recurrent laryngeal nerve. The vascular pedicles are divided using ultrasonic scissors and the thyroid nodule is delivered after division of the isthmus.
