Abstract

In summary, disease of the thyroid gland is common. Anaesthetists will be required to manage patients with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and those requiring thyroidectomy. Since anaesthesia for thyroidectomy provides many challenges of airway management, the anaesthetist should pay particular attention to preoperative assessment of the airway and should be able to deal with acute airway complications in the perioperative phase.
