Ipsilateral central compartment node dissection (IpsiCCD) can reduce the morbidity of prophylactic bilateral central compartment node dissection (BilCCD) in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) but it carries the risk of contralateral metastases being overlooked. Frozen section examination (FSE) of removed ipsilateral nodes has been proposed to intraoperatively assess nodal status. We compared IpsiCCD plus FSE and BilCCD in clinically unifocal and node negative PTC.

Abstract

Ipsilateral central compartment node dissection (IpsiCCD) can reduce the morbidity of prophylactic bilateral central compartment node dissection (BilCCD) in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) but it carries the risk of contralateral metastases being overlooked. Frozen section examination (FSE) of removed ipsilateral nodes has been proposed to intraoperatively assess nodal status. We compared IpsiCCD plus FSE and BilCCD in clinically unifocal and node negative PTC.
