This is a video case presentation for a 61 years old female who presented with signs and symptoms of an obstructive neck mass; she was worked up to have a non-toxic multinodular goiter and underwent a subtotal thyroidectomy.
On follow-up, the patient's complaints of distended neck and chest veins persisted and a CT scan of the chest showed a residual thyroid goiter in the left superior mediastinum, compressing the inominate vein with shunting of blood.
She was offered a sternotomy with mediastinal exploration and removal of the residual thyroid tissue vs a left sided video-assisted thoracoscopic thyroidectomy ; she opted for the latter procedure.
The video is attached for this procedure.
Presented at the SAGES 2017 Annual Meeting in Houston, TX.
