Abstract

Intraoperative measurement of calcitonin is not highly accurate in predicting the completeness of the operative resection after total thyroidectomy combined with central neck dissection (TT-CND) in patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). We evaluated whether an intraoperative, high-dose calcium stimulation test (IO-CST) after TT-CND can predict lateral neck involvement.
