Management of the exterior branch of the superior laryngeal nerve among thyroid surgeons - Results from a nationwide survey.

Almquist, Martin LU and Nordenström, Erik LU (2015) In International Journal of Surgery 20. p.46-51
Abstract
The external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve is important for the voice. However, it is unknown how thyroid surgeons manage this nerve during operations. We hypothesised that this management is related to the surgeon's age, gender, the surgeons' annual number of thyroid operations, i.e volume, and surgical specialisation.
