Surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid tumours

£20.00 + VAT

Surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid tumours

When approaching cases of thyroid or parathyroid tumours in dogs and cats in practice, an understanding of the potential endocrinological effects of such tumours, as well as the likelihood of benign versus malignant transformation, is important. Following diagnostic investigations to determine whether the tumour is functional, to anatomically localise the tumour and, in some cases, to screen for metastatic spread, surgical excision is frequently indicated in the management of thyroid and parathyroid tumours. A thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the neck and delicate surgical approach are essential. Prognosis is ultimately dependant on thetumour type and stage, as well as the ability to restore homeostatic mechanisms.
