Anaesthetist's and surgeon's point of view of perioperative and postoperative complications is both discussed with special interest on early surgical complications and the need for urgent anaesthetic treatment. Particularly total intravenous anaesthesia and recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring actually are two end-points in the thyroid surgery.
