Abstract

In 289 benign thyroid tumor operations performed at our hospital between 1988 and 1999, we treated 8 patients with mediastinal goiter, 4 of which were adenomas and 4 were adenomatous golters.<br>It was possible to remove the goiter entirely via acervical approach in all 8 patients and even goiters extending to the aortic arch were safely removed without requiring sternotomy. There were no complications such as recurrent nerve palsy or postoperative hemorrage in those patients.<br>The surgical approach, operative technique and results of therapy are discussed and transcervical approach for resection is emphasized.
