The main considerations take into account the recurrent laryngeal nerve and the parathyroid glands. This chapter specifies those steps from a preoperative evaluation to the pearls during dissection to ensure a complete reoperative dissection that removes all residual thyroid tissue and lymphadenopathy while ensuring the best outcomes.
