NCT ID: NCT02855866 Completed - Thyroidectomy Clinical Trials

Interest of Cryotherapy or Cortisone Aerosol Therapy in Early Post-operative Swallowing Disorders Following Total Thyroidectomy

Start date: September 3, 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The scientific interest of this study is to improve post-operative comfort in patients after thyroid surgery using simple, inexpensive techniques. The investigator expects that local applications of ice or cortisone aerosols will reduce swallowing discomfort and control post-operative pain (POP). The investigator hopes that local cryotherapy will decrease post-operative oedema (vasoconstriction) and the volume of liquid drained (action on the serous fluid at the site of the thyroidectomy).
