Surgical Risk after Unilateral Lobectomy versus Total Thyroidectomy: A Review of 47,434 Patients

The incidence and severity of thyroid cancer continues to rise. The rate for new diagnoses of thyroid cancer has increased an average of 6.4% per year over the last 10 years and mortality of thyroid cancer has increased 0.9% per year over the same period  With this increasing disease burden, the need for both diagnostic and therapeutic thyroidectomy remains high.Although thyroid surgery is a relatively safe procedure, there are a number of severe, preventable complications [2,3]. Because medical sustainability proposals link reimbursements with quality control measures, it is imperative to establish normative data by which surgeons and hospitals can be compared to their cohorts with regard to thyroidectomy outcomes. Although more than 20,000 thyroidectomies are performed every year in the United States, only a few papers have attempted to describe high-volume, multi-center outcome data for thyroid surgery.
