Quality indicators for thyroid cancer surgery: current perspective

Expert review of anticancer therapy | 26 Aug 2016

RQ Liu and SM Wiseman
Abstract
While the disease specific mortality of differentiated thyroid cancer has remained low with current treatments, its incidence has been steadily rising over the past several decades, and cancer related recurrence and morbidity have remained a significant problem. Quality indicators currently employed are relevant to the surgical intervention, but do not necessarily reflect oncological outcomes. Therefore, thyroid cancer specific surgical quality indicators, that offer insight into risk of cancer related morbidity and mortality are needed.
