Purpose: The techniques for minimally invasive surgery in various surgical fields have recently become markedly developed. The endoscopic surgical methods for head and neck surgery have been introduced somewhat later due to some technical limitations. However, various endoscopic techniques have been remarkably developed during the last 10 years. We also introduced a novel method of gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy using the trans-axillary approach. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and surgical outcome of this method for treating patients with benign thyroid tumor.
Methods: From Jan. 2002 to Dec. 2007, 171 patients with benign thyroid tumors underwent gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy via an axillary approach. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical and pathologic characteristics of the patients, the type of operation, the operative time, the post-operative hospital stay and the post-operative complications. Results: Among the 171 patients, the mean age of the patients was 33.3±10.0 years and the gender ratio was 1: 84.5 (males-2, females-169). The type of operation was classified according to the extent of surgery and there was no conversion to open thyroidectomy. The mean operation time and the mean length of the post-operative hospital stay were 129.7±51.6 minutes and 3.3±1.7 days, respectively. The mean tumor size was 2.70±1.18 cm and the most common pathologic diagnosis was adenomatous hyperplasia (106 cases, 62%). For the post-operative complications, transient hoarseness occurred in 6 patients, transient hypocalcemia occurred in 1 patient and trachea and esophageal injury occurred in 1 patient each. A tumor size larger than 5 cm and concurrent thyroiditis at time of the operation both increased the mean operation time (P= 0.009, P=0.023).

Conclusion: According to our experience, gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy using a trans-axillary approach is a feasible and safe method for treating benign thyroid tumor. Moreover, the cosmetic benefits can be maximized by this method as compared with the other methods. Endoscopic thyroid surgery has become a new treatment modality for selected patients with benign thyroid tumors
