Özet

Aims: There is considerable controversy concerning the most appropriate surgical treatment of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Although some authors have advocated subtotal thyroidectomy because of the decreased surgical morbidity and the lack of improved survival with a more extensive procedure, total thyroidectomy has been defended by others as a treatment of choice with lower morbidity.
