Abstract

A70 's male was diagnosed with advanced papillary thyroid carcinoma and underwent total thyroidectomy with left lymph node dissection(T4a, N1b, M0, stage IV A). Six years after the surgery, subclavicular and mediastinal lymph node recurrence was observed. Radioiodine therapy was not successful for those lesions. Lymph node dissection was performed via the cervical and transsternal approaches. One year after the second surgery, cervical and mediastinal lymph node recurrence was again observed. We removed the cervical lymph nodes via the cervical approach. One month after cervical dissection, we removed the mediastinal lymph nodes via video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery(VATS). The lymph nodes were relatively easily dissected by VATS under excellent surgical views. Repeat mediastinal dissection via median sternotomy could be associated with significant complications. VATS is expected to reduce the risk of reoperation and enhance surgical outcomes.
