Background The aim of this study was to assess a prospective, randomized clinical trial (RCT) comparing neurostimulation with laryngeal palpation (NSLP) of recurrent laringeal nerve (RLN) alone with NSLP associated with laryngeal neuromonitoring (LNM) to evaluate the ability of LNM in reducing the rates of RLN palsy. Methods. In all, 250 consecutive patients scheduled to have thyroidectomy were randomized to NSLP alone (NSLP group) or NSLP with LNM (LNM group). The primary endpoint was to assess the rate of RLN palsy. Results. The incidence of palsy was 2.7% in the LMN group and 2.6% in the NSLP group. No significant statistical difference between the groups was observed either for permanent or for transient paralysis (respectively, Fisher's Exact test: p = 1.0 and p = 1.0). Conclusions. This RCT shows that the use of LNM during thyroidectomy does not reduce the rates of recurrent laryngeal injuries compared with NSLP alone.

Abstract

Background The aim of this study was to assess a prospective, randomized clinical trial (RCT) comparing neurostimulation with laryngeal palpation (NSLP) of recurrent laringeal nerve (RLN) alone with NSLP associated with laryngeal neuromonitoring (LNM) to evaluate the ability of LNM in reducing the rates of RLN palsy. Methods. In all, 250 consecutive patients scheduled to have thyroidectomy were randomized to NSLP alone (NSLP group) or NSLP with LNM (LNM group). The primary endpoint was to assess the rate of RLN palsy. Results. The incidence of palsy was 2.7% in the LMN group and 2.6% in the NSLP group. No significant statistical difference between the groups was observed either for permanent or for transient paralysis (respectively, Fisher's Exact test: p = 1.0 and p = 1.0). Conclusions. This RCT shows that the use of LNM during thyroidectomy does not reduce the rates of recurrent laryngeal injuries compared with NSLP alone.
