Figure 2: (a) Cadaver study: Cadaver placed in supine position with the neck moderately extended and the lesion-side arm was stretched out at 90° when possible. A 2 cm incision was performed in the ipsilateral axillary fossa. (b) After the dissection of the tunnel, an Olympus Triport was installed in the incision. (c) The lesion-side thyroid lobe was reached by vertical dissection of the strap muscle in the middle line. (d) Identification of the ipsilateral recurrent nerve
