Some observations on the approach to recurrent laryngeal nerve in thyroid surgery are reported, with the goal to preserve the anatomical area when identifying the nerve, or the structure itself when dissecting it. The surgical procedure has been examined on a 30 years' experience of thyroidectomies performed in our department. Some observations about the surgical approach to thyroidectomy in order to preserve the integrity of the anatomical area and of the nerve itself are reported. The identification of recurrent laryngeal nerve is useful in case of benignant pathology, otherwise dissection will be necessary.
