The article focuses on studies which examine the bilateral axillo-breast approach for thyroidectomy in a cohort of patients with papillary microcarcinoma. The researchers study a technique that may be cosmetically more desirable for certain patients, but has not been proven to result in equivalent resection for malignancy when compared to the conventional approach.
