Postoperative hypocalcaemia due to dysfunction of the parathyroid glands is the most common complication after total thyroidectomy plus central neck dissection (
The study group included patients with primary papillary thyroid cancer who underwent total thyroidectomy with
There were 181 patients in the study group and 306 in the control group. There were no significant differences between the groups in tumour size, multifocality, extrathyroidal extension, and number of harvested and metastatic central lymph nodes. The rate of inferior parathyroid gland preservation
Applying the proposed surgical concept improved the rate of inferior parathyroid gland preservation
