[Thyroidectomy of completion and reoperations for thyroid cancer].

[Article in Ukrainian]


In 1990--2010 yrs there were operated 159 patients for differentiated thyroid gland cancer (THGC) and 89 - for medullary thyroid gland cancer (MTHGC). The recurrence rate in application of radical tactics of surgical treatment in the first operation for differentiated THGC, comparing with such after reoperation, is lesser - (2.7 +/- 1.5) and (7.3 +/- 4.0)%, accordingly (P < 0.05). The results of diagnostic lymphadenectomy constitute a secure criterion for indication to perform a dissection of a lateral basin of the lymph nodes. The indices of survival in patients, suffering MTHGC, in whom a radical tactics was used in the first operation, are by 29.4% (P = 0.024) better, than in patients, to whom it was applied while subsequent operations, the disease-free survival - by 45.6% (P= .0001). Reoperation is indicated in occurrence of any local and regional recurrences of the THGC. In anaplastic THGC reoperations are performed rarely.
