One of the prob­lems of sur­gery in the ­neck is ­the scar. Endoscopic sur­gery has recent­ly ­been ­applied to cer­vi­cal explo­ra­tion and the ­scars of the ­neck are ­small and incon­spic­u­ous, but a few ­patients ­still com­plain of it. For ­this rea­son, we devel­oped a tech­nique of endo­scop­ic resec­tion of thy­roid ­tumors ­using an axil­lary ­approach. This ­approach ­does not ­leave a ­scar on the ­neck or the ­chest, and the ­small ­scar in the axil­la is com­plete­ly cov­ered by the ­patient’s arm in a nat­u­ral man­ner. Furthermore, the com­pli­ca­tions ­such as hyper­cap­nia, res­pir­a­to­ry aci­do­sis, sub­cu­ta­ne­ous empy­se­ma, ­air embo­lism and sen­so­ry ­loss in the ­neck ­region are min­i­mized, ­because the work­ing sur­gi­cal ­space is ­small and pro­ce­dures can be per­formed ­with CO2 insuf­fla­tion lev­els bel­ow 4 mmHg. We ­believe ­that endo­scop­ic sur­gery by the axil­lary ­approach ­will ­find a ­role in the treat­ment of thy­roid ­tumors.
