Abstract

Thyroid cancer has a very well-known propensity for nodal involvement, either in the central and lateral neck compartments. Neck dissection addressing the central compartment may be performed with an elective or therapeutic intent, the former concomitantly to a thyroidectomy whereas the latter may be accomplished also as a revision procedure for recurrent disease. In this paper complications of central compartment neck dissection will be described, analyzing separately primary and revision procedures.
