Abstract

Background: Despite numerous reports that it is not necessary to use drains after thyroidectomy, the drains are still used routinely. The study aim to compare thyroid surgery complications with and without drains appliance.. Material and methods: A prospective study was conducted, 66 patients who were candidate for thyroid surgery (total- subtotal thyroidectomy and thyroid lobectomy) divided into 2 groups. Each group was randomized into "drain" and "non drain" subgroup. Some indicators were investigated such as primary thyroid size, fluid collection in thyroid bed (early and late), hospital stay, change in voice, dysphagia, wound infection, hematoma, seroma, and change in plasma calcium level. Statistical analyses were performed using chi-square test and Student’s T test.. Routine use drains usage after thyroid surgery may not be necessary. However thyroidectomy without drains may be safe and effective method..
