Abstract

The review presents data of the most common complication after hemithyroidectomy — hypothyroidism, as well as postoperative hypothyroidism: its subclinical and manifest forms, incidence, the time of occurrence after the surgery, factors affecting the development of postoperative hypothyroidism, among the main ones — the preoperative level of thyroid-stimulating hormone, the age and presence of antithyroid antibodies. The risks of nodulation in the vicarious part of the thyroid gland after hemithyroidectomy were also analyzed. In general, there was no nodule development in the remaining lobe in the short-term period.
