Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy currently represents the most widely performed technique for minimally invasive thyroidectomy in western countries. The particular complications of the minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy technique will be discussed. We will focus specifically on the relevant aspects and management of well-known complications (e.g. postoperative bleeding) during and after this minimally invasive procedure, and on how to avoid them.
