Abstract

Complication rates from total thyroidectomy are low, at present mortality for this procedure is around 0% and overall complication rate is less than 3%. Major complication includes wound infection, hematoma, recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy, hypoparathyroidism. Tracheal injury associated with thyroidectomy is rare,but when it occurs it can be very dangerous.Tracheal perforation is generally not considered a complication as such, but rather atechnical occurrence during surgery that requires expeditious attention. Tracheal perforation, if encountered, needs to be managed appropriately incenters of expertise for high volume of thyroidectomy.
