Author(s): Sai Mahesh AVS, Kranthi M and V Mahidhar Reddy
Abstract: Background: Hyperthyroidism refers to over activity of the thyroid gland leading to high synthesis and excessive production of thyroid hormone the extent and severity of the clinical manifestations of thyrotoxicosis are not strongly correlated with its biochemical severity. Surgery should be proposed as an immediate and completely effective solution for thyrotoxicosis, especially when compared with prolonged medical therapy, because it can provide a demonstrable improvement in the quality of life (QOL) of the patients.
Methods: prospective study was done to clarify the surgical indications and the effectiveness of total thyroidectomy in the treatment of thyrotoxicosis and quality of life after surgery.
Results: A Totally thirty patients with varied clinical presentations are confirmed to be suffering from the thyrotoxicosis and tests were appropriately evaluated and Thyrotoxicosis controlled and consented patients were operated In this study quality of life is assessed by regular follow up of patient by initial weekly follow up for 1month, there after once in 3 months over a period of 2yrs.
Conclusion: Surgery should be proposed as an immediate and completely effective solution for thyrotoxicosis, especially when compared with prolonged medical therapy, because it can provide a demonstrable improvement in the quality of life (QOL) of the patients.
