Management before thyroidectomy may lead to complications in patients

April 24, 2017

Adults who undergo thyroidectomy in France often receive suboptimal management before the procedure, and this may account for overdiagnosis and potential harms to patients, according to findings published in BMJ Open.

Anne Fagot-Campagna, MD, PhD, of the Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs Salariés in Paris, and colleagues evaluated data from the Sniiram (French National Health Insurance Information System) database on 35,367 adults (mean age, 51 years; 80% women) who underwent thyroid surgery in 2010 to determine the pathway of care the patients received and to detect potential harms.
