Abstract

Background: The first report of minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) was published in 1999, and the indications were progressively implemented: from cytologically undetermined thyroid nodules to intermediate-risk differentiated thyroid cancers. The aim of this study was to review the entire series of patients who underwent a MIVAT, critically analyzing its indications and contraindications and trying to figure out how the indications might be extended. Methods: From 1998 to 2009, a total of 1,946 patients (1,659 females, 287 males; mean age = 40.2 years) underwent MIVAT in our department. Inclusion criteria were benign thyroid nodules
