The number of lymph nodes dissected is a key factor because it can help improve both DFS and OS.[sup][17],[18] However, the extent of lymph node dissection needed remains controversial.[sup][19] The current staging system for NSCLC is based on the 7[sup]th edition of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer classification.[sup][20] This focuses on the locations of the involved lymph nodes but not on their number.
This approach has reached consensus among surgeons in relation to the lateral neck, while for the central compartment some still advocate a prophylactic lymph node dissection. One argument for this approach is that the central compartment is readily accessible while performing the thyroidectomy and that clearing this compartment during the first surgical procedure is easier and safer than in the revision setting (8).

We defined reoperative thyroidectomy as any surgery on the thyroid bed that required a return to the operating room for reoperation either to complete the first surgery (lobectomy, completion thyroidectomy, or lymph node dissection of the central compartment) or in relation to a complication related to the first surgery (haemorrhage, textiloma, infection, etc.) and whatever the time between the two interventions.
