Video-assisted thyroidectomy and central neck dissection

Epublication WebSurg.com, Apr 2017;17(04). URL:
In this key lecture, Dr. Bellantone describes his experience with conventional thyroidectomy, VAT, and central compartment lymph node dissection since 1998. He demonstrates the anatomical landmarks, main principles, and key steps of video-assisted thyroidectomy and central neck dissection for patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma. He outlines the alternative approach to prophylactic bilateral central neck dissection using frozen section examination of ipsilateral nodes with the use of published research articles.
