Aims: To determine the therapeutic results of endoscopic-assisted lateral neck dissection and open lateral neck dissection in the treatment of lateral neck lymph node metastasis in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma syphilis. A retrospective review was published focusing on 86 patients with PTC treated Baoding No. 1 Central Hospital from January 2020 to September 2021. Patients were divided into the endoscopic surgery group and the open surgery group according to different surgical techniques. Results: The operation time and hospitalization costs of the endoscopic surgery group were higher than those of the open surgery group, and intraoperative blood loss was less than that of the open surgery group, with statistically significant differences. In zone II, there was no significant difference between the two groups in the length of stay in the hospital, the number of dissected lymph nodes, the number of metastatic lymph nodes, the number of metastatic lymph nodes, and the detection rate of lymph nodes. There was no significant difference between the two groups in postoperative neck pain scores. The difference was statistically significant, with the postoperative neck numbness discomfort score and satisfaction score with postoperative cosmetic results in the endoscopic surgery group achieving higher scores than those in the open surgery group. Conclusion: Endoscopic-assisted lateral neck dissection can minimize intraoperative blood loss and postoperative complications in the treatment of lateral neck lymph node metastasis of PTC.

According to this, an increased number of patients needing salvaged NDs would be helpful. We investigated the incidence and localizations of viable tumour cells in neck lymph nodes in patients post-RT/CRT, which was identified by fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography with computer-tomography, with a focus on HPV-associated tumours. Patients with tumors on 217 TSCC/BOTSCC were screened for HPV-DNA and p16INK4a, and a ND were included in FDG PET-CT 12 weeks after treatment and/or an ND were present. After the ND, the FDG PET-CT findings were compared to the pathology report findings.
