Özet

Purpose The objective of this study was to investigate whether prophylactic central lymph node dissection (pCLND) facilitates postoperative thyroglobulin (Tg) follow-up in the patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). We also questioned whether radioactive iodine (RAI) remnant ablation provides any further advantage in this regard.
