Abstract

For 50 years 603 patients with the thyroid gland cancer were operated on, to whom 715 operative interventions were done. Before the Chernobyl disaster 395 patients were examined, after her--208. Differentiated forms of the thyroid gland cancer were diagnosed in 97.3% of patients, including papillary one--in 83.3%, follicular--in 14%. After the Chernobyl disaster the thyroid gland cancer diagnosis had improved significantly, it had become revealed on early stage. There were 5.6% patients with cancer operated for the thyroid gland diseases for 50 years (5%--before the disaster and 7.8%--after her). The clinical course of differentiated thyroid gland cancer permits to perform organpreserving operation no less than hemithyroidectomy in patients with T1-2N0M0 stage of the disease. The five-year survival index of patients with differentiated cancer had constituted 89%, the ten-year one--84%.
