Introduction: Surgical intervention is the preferred method for eradicating invasive thyroid carcinoma (TC), but the
extent of resection is still controversial.
Materials and Methods: A total of 2593 patients were operated on for differentiate TC between 1973 and 2007.
Wide extrathyroid TC spread (T4) was fined in 464 (21.9%) cases of 2115 included in that research. We performed
256 combined thyroid and adjacent organ resections, 246 extended neck and mediastinum lymphadenectomy, 146
palliative operations. Transsternal approach have used during 31 operations. Totally were carried out 581 such
operation at 441 patients. There were 19.2% males, 80.8% females (1:4.2). Average age made 57.7. Papillary TC was
found in 62.9%, follicular - in 24.8% and medullar - in 12.3%. TC extension on muscles of neck and larynx (73.8%),
RLN (37.9%), trachea (35.2%), pharynx and esophagus (23.8%), main neck or meditational vessels (21.9%) were
Results: Seven patients died after 435 operations. No lethal outcomes happened of 97 patients operated on
into two stages. Unexpected RLN palsy, temporary HPT observed at 6.2%. Follow up results (median 9.6+0.9) were
investigated in 84.9%. The 5-year survival rate made 81.9% and 10-year – 71.1% after combined and 86.7% and
70.6% - after extended operations. The local failure rate after organs paring “shaving” and “wedge” aero digestive
organ resections were not significantly worse than after of those circular resections (9.8% and 3.7%). But quality of
life, 5 and 10 years survival rates after organ-sparing were much better (80.5% and 35.7% compared to 76.0% and
7.1%). 5-year follow-up results after palliative operations made 40.7% in papillary and follicular TC cases and 17.1%
- in medullary carcinoma. 29.1% of differentiated TC patients were alive after palliative operations, adjuvant therapies
during 10 and more years.
Conclusion: “Shave” excision, “wedge” resection procedures in cases of TC aerodigestive organ invasions have
produced better results than “sleeve” resection for recovery and improving of patient’s quality life.
