Congress report: Granada, Spain 2019

Presenting new intraoperative adjuncts for parathyroid surgery (for parathyroid hyperfunction/primary hyperparathyroidism) at the 8th conference of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons (ESES) in Granada, Spain.

TOETVA – transoral thyroid surgery

Visiting Police General Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand where this operation has been developed.

 

TOETVA (Transoral endocopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach)

Without any incision in the neck (=scarless), thyroid surgery is performed minimally invasive (=endoscopically by using a camera) through small incisions in the oral cavity. This kind of surgery is suitable for most patients with small thyroid glands and/or small nodules (<4 cm).

Scarless thyroid surgery

A new surgical technique (called “TOETVA”- technique) allows removal of the thyroid gland through the oral cavity without any visible scars on the neck.

During a symposium in Potsdam, October 12th, I was able to discuss this promising technique with colleagues from all over the world.
