PerOral Endoscopic Thyroidectomy (POET), a novel pioneering technique
Thyroid surgery has evolved towards minimally invasive approaches to reduce or prevent cervical scars, which are potential seats for keloidal scarring. Several approaches have been put forward: video-assisted surgery via a reduced cervical scar, transaxillary access with or without robotic assistance, transoral retromandibular approach, retroauricular approach in keeping with a lifting procedure.
In this video, we present the case of an original transoral vestibular approach. This access is exclusively subcutaneous. No cervical scar is necessary. This technique allows for a unilateral or bilateral approach in excellent visualization conditions. Dissection is performed from cranially to caudally with the rapid identification of the inferior laryngeal nerve.
