Further study details as provided by Second Military Medical University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • post-operative pain [ Time Frame: 24h post-operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    24hs after operation, post-operative pain is evaluated by VAS(visual analoge scale)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • number of patients with adverse effect [ Time Frame: within 3 months after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    record how many patients had adverse effects(eg. bruise, seroma, hematoma, hoarseness,hypocalciemia)


Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: standard
3 trocars are needed. two in the circumareolar region and one in the parasternal region. the dissection area begins from the trocar site and extends to the neck.
Procedure: endoscopic thyroidectomy
endoscopic thyroidectomy via the breast approach. the difference between two arms is in the subcutaneous dissection area.
Other Name: limited flap dissection endoscopic thyroidectomy
Experimental: limited dissection
the dissection is reduced by creating a long tunnel from the trocar site and the dissection area confined in the upper chest wall and in the neck.
Procedure: endoscopic thyroidectomy
endoscopic thyroidectomy via the breast approach. the difference between two arms is in the subcutaneous dissection area.
Other Name: limited flap dissection endoscopic thyroidectomy

Detailed Description:

To create a working place in the chest wall is an inevitable step of endoscopic thyroidectomy. Large subcutaneous area was considered a drawback of endoscopic thyroidectomy. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether subcutaneous dissection area has influence on clinical outcome of endoscopic thyroidectomy, such as post-operative pain, complication rate and post-operative discomfort.
