Different parameters were considered (thyroid disease, previous thyroid surgery, microsurgical reconstruction technique, time between surgical damage and microsurgery). Furthermore, a thourough review has been made on the medical literature on subjects such as surgical anatomy of the cervical region, microsurgical nerve repair techniques, and clinical results of microsurgery in different authors experiences.
