Recent data on surgery for thyroid malignancies show an annual incidence of 7-9 per 100,000 inhabitants (1-3). Since malignant thyroid tumors account for 25-30% of all thyroid procedures, the number of procedures carried out for all thyroid diseases may easily be as high as 30-40 per 100,000 habitants. When performed by experienced surgeons, thyroidectomy is a highly safe procedure, with a low risk of injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerves (RLN)
