Central compartment lymph node (CCLND) management in patients without clinical or radiologic evidence of CCLND metastasis is debatable. CCLND in Papillary Thyroid Cancer has the advantages of complete clearance of the disease, thereby reducing the chances of recurrence and the subsequent morbidity of reoperation. However, it is associated with increased risk of hypo-parathyroidism and recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy. Therefore experience is required from the part of the operating surgeon, to minimize surgical morbidity.
