Özet

Background: The incidence and potential risk factors for the recurrence of benign nodular goitre after unilateral thyroidectomy are not clearly defined. The aim of this study was to assess the rate of progression of nodular goitre in the contralateral thyroid lobe and of hypothyroidism requiring replacement therapy after unilateral thyroid lobectomy for benign nodular goitre.
