Get thyroid gland removed through hidden cut below lip

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [US] 

You can now get your thyroid

gland removed by getting three small incisions inside the mouth

underneath the lower lip.

Team of researchers at Mount Sinai Beth (MSBI) claimed to have

performed the first endoscopic transoral thyroidectomy in New York,

and one of the first of its kind in the nation.

Their initial case, which is the first published report in the United States, was recently described in the journal Surgical Endoscopy.

They inserted ports through the incisions, including an endoscope - a

medical device with a light and camera.

Once a working space within the neck area was created, lead

researcher, William B. Inabnet III, preserved the critical structures

and removed the thyroid gland through the largest of the incisions.

This minimally-invasive procedure leaves a hidden scar compared to the

conventional transcervical approach, which leaves a visible scar on

the patient's neck.

"Out of all of the approaches, this is the type of thyroid operation,

where there is no sign that the patient underwent surgery," said Dr.

Inabnet.

"This procedure is best equipped for smaller nodules and early-stage

papillary thyroid cancer. I anticipate, it will evolve for other

applications going forward," he added.

Inabnet and his team specialize in a group of operations known as

hidden-scar endoscopic thyroid surgery, which includes the

transaxillary approach where incisions are made under the armpit, and

the bilateral axillary breast approach, also known as BABA, where four

small incisions are made in hidden locations on the chest.

Dr. Inabnet has pioneered new techniques in minimally invasive

endocrine neck surgery as well as adrenal and pancreatic surgery.
