New Paradigms for Neural Monitoring in Thyroid Surgery.

Surg Technol Int 2019 Jan 18;34. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Ospedale di Circolo di Varese, Varese, Italy.

Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) in thyroid gland surgery provides real-time feedback to the endocrine surgeon regarding the electrophysiological consequences of surgical manipulation of the laryngeal nerves. The goal of monitoring modalities is to detect surgical or physiological insults to the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) while they are still reversible or, in cases where prevention is not an option, to minimize the damage done to these structures during thyroidectomy. In recent decades, monitoring of the RLN has become a fundamental part of endocrine surgery. Read More

IONM and minimally invasive videoassisted thyroidectomy.

G Chir 2018 Sep-Oct;39(5):291-296

Background: We know that benefits of MIVAT are related to a better cosmetic result and lower post-operative pain in comparison to CT. The incidence of nerve cold palsy is related to a correct identification of the recurrent laringeal nerve (RLN) as standard procedure in thyroid surgery. From September 2014 we have introduced the use of intraoperative neural monitoring(I-IONM) in all thyroidectomies in the Unit of General Surgery of University Hospital of Parma, including in MIVAT.

Endoscopic Endonasal Approach Combined with a Simultaneous Transcranial Approach for Giant Pituitary Tumors.

World Neurosurg 2019 Jan 16;121:173-179. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Neurosurgery, Keio University School of Medicine, Keio University, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: The endoscopic endonasal approach is widely used for treating giant pituitary adenomas. However, a small subset of tumors is still challenging to treat, and the risk of complications increases when an endoscopic endonasal approach alone is used. The simultaneous combined endoscopic endonasal and transcranial approach is a surgical option for such difficult adenomas; however, very few studies have described the technical nuances and benefits of this approach.

Granulomatous lymphadenitis mimicking metastatic lymphadenopathy in the neck after lymphatic embolization of chyle leakage: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Oct;97(41):e12744

Gyeongsang National University School of Medicine, Jinju.

Rationale: Lymphatic embolization is a minimally invasive treatment option for managing chyle leakage after nodal dissection in the neck. After the procedure, the embolic material may cause foreign body granulomatous lymphadenitis and can be a diagnostic challenge for radiologists because of sonographic similarity to metastatic lymph node. Herein, we describe a clinical case of granulomatous lymphadenitis due to embolic material mimicking nodal metastasis detected on ultrasonography (US) with cytologic findings in a patient with thyroid cancer who underwent lymphatic embolization to treat chyle leakage after total thyroidectomy and neck dissection.

Feasibility of Intraoperative Neuromonitoring During Thyroid Surgery Using Transcartilage Surface Recording Electrodes.

Thyroid 2018 Nov;28(11):1508-1516

7 Department of Anesthesiology, Kaohsiung Municipal Ta-Tung Hospital, Kaohsiung Municipal Hsiao-Kang Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, College of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University , Kaohsiung, Taiwan .

Background: Intraoperative neural monitoring (IONM) has gained widespread acceptance as an adjunct to the gold standard of visual identification of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) during thyroid surgery. Currently, laryngeal electromyography (EMG) recording during IONM is almost always performed using endotracheal tube (ETT) surface electrodes placed adjacent to vocal folds originating from the inner surface of the thyroid cartilage (TC). Therefore, it was hypothesized that surface recording electrodes placed on the outer surface of the TC should enable access to the EMG response of the vocal folds during IONM. Read More
