Most patients in our study were in the late stages of thyroid cancer, which makes it difficult to identify the RLN. However, in all of the cases, the RLNs were successfully identified by the medial approach.
The cervical parts of 61 RLNs (38 right and 23 left) were visually identified and totally exposed along their cervical courses.
Surgeons use various techniques to identify the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve (RLN) during operative procedures on the neck.
Finally, RLNs that met the criteria for either enhanced CT or PET/CT were generally considered positive, although any discrepancies between the two modalities were resolved by consensus.
The impact is extrapolated by dividing the California estimates by the proportion of adults with valid RLNs (91% for all cases; 97.7% for Medicare), then by multiplying the California results by the 2006 U.S.
From each record, we extracted year of admission, county of residence, age, race, ethnicity, sex, presence of HIV infection (ICD-9 codes 042 or V08), pregnancy status (ICD9 codes V22-V23.9 or 630-76.9), vital status at discharge, and record locator number (RLN) (available for 1997-2000 only).
For example, ten aircraft trips, ten ship trips, and three RLNs of 50 Stons each arriving 3 days late would yield an objective function value of 560 units.
Potential injury to either the recurrent laryngeal nerves (RLNs) or superior laryngeal nerves (SLNs) may result from severing, clamping, compressing, or stretching.
Virtually unique identifiers are produced The criterion of uniqueness was tested by running a file containing 867,535 different SSNs through the encryption program, which resulted in 867,535 different RLNs. Thus, while it is not impossible that the same RLN can be produced from two different SSNs, it is highly improbable (p [is less than] .00000115).
The BABA permits a full and symmetrical surgical view of important anatomic (structures such as the superior and inferior thyroidal vessels, the RLNs, the parathyroid glands, and the trachea), bilateral thyroid exploration, more workspace for instrument use, and the removal of larger nodules.
The main postoperative complications are recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) palsy and hypoparathyroidism [1-3].
