[Diagnostic diagnosis of thyroid microcarcinoma].
ABSTRACT To investigate how to improve the rate of clinically diagnosis of thyroid microcarcinoma.
Clinically diagnostic data of 73 cases with TMC, operated and confirmed by pathology from Jan. 2000 to Dec. 2009 were retrospective analyzed, the data were divided into A, B groups, A group (21 cases) can touch the regional lymph nodes and/or thyroid nodule with hard quality; B group(52 cases) can't touch the regional lymph nodes and/or thyroid nodule with hard quality, and the data was analyzed by statistical software.
Fifty-three cases diagnosed preoperatively and intraoperatively, the diagnosis rate was 73% (53/73). A group including 18 ca ses, diagnostic rate was 86% (18/21); B group including 35 cases, diagnostic rate was 67% (35/52); A variety of auxiliary examination and intraoperative exploration, etc, was statistically significant for improving the diagnostic rate of TMC.
The clinically missed diagnostic rate of TMC was high, but the physicians adequate attention, careful palpation before surgery, the corresponding auxiliary inspection measures will help improve the clinically diagnostic rate of TMC.
