Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose subfascial approach make better result of swallowing function? [ Time Frame: Until 1 year follow up ]

    To see the effect of subfascial approach for postthyroidectomy swallowing symptom , we will compare the swallowing function between group I(subfascial approach) and group II(subplatysmal approach) after completion of study(after 1 year f/u).

    To check the safety of this study, our result will be checked by korea institutional reveiw board every one year.


  • Dose subfascial approach make better result of voice symptom? [ Time Frame: Until 1 year follow up ]

    To see the effect of subfascial approach for postthyroidectomy voice function, we will compare the voice function(e.g. hoarseness) between group I(subfascial approach) and group II(subplatysmal approach) after completion of study(after 1 year f/u).

    To check the safety of this study, our result will be checked by korea institutional reveiw board every one year.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The efficacy of subfascial approach in thyroid cancer [ Time Frame: Until 1 year follow up ]

    To see the effect of subfascial approach for postthyroidectomy sensory symptom on neck, we will compare the sensory function and between group I(subfascial approach) and group II(subplatysmal approach) after completion of study(after 1 year f/u).

    To check the safety of this study, our result will be checked by korea institutional reveiw board every one year.
