Patient information ahead of thyroid surgery. Guidelines of the French Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (SFORL)



Patient information ahead of thyroid surgery. Guidelines of the French Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (SFORL)



European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases 130(6): 363-368



The authors present the guidelines of the French Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (SFORL) on patient information ahead of thyroid surgery. A multidisciplinary medical team was tasked with a scientific literature review on this topic. The texts retrieved were analyzed by an independent committee. A joint meeting drew up the final guidelines. The strength of the recommendations (grade A, B or C) was based on levels of evidence. It is recommended that the results of preoperative exploration and the indications for surgery should be explained to the patient. Patients should be informed as to the type of surgery, surgical objectives, risks and consequences. It is mandatory to obtain the patient's written consent before surgery. Appropriate medical information is a critical step in patient management.
