Total thyroidectomy (TT) has emerged as a surgical option in the surgical treatment of patients with multinodular goiter. TT carries potential risk to all parathyroid glands and both recurrent laryngeal nerve. The aims of this study are to evaluate the difference between serum calcium levels before and after total and near total thyroidectomy and to compare the rate of postoperative hypocalcemia according to surgical procedures.
