Ultrasonography-Based Thyroidal and Perithyroidal Anatomy and Its Clinical Significance.

Ha EJ, Baek JH, Lee JH - Korean J Radiol (2015)

Bottom Line: For a safe and effective US-guided procedure, knowledge of neck anatomy, particularly that of the nerves, vessels, and other critical structures, is essential.Therefore, the aim of this article was to elucidate US-based thyroidal and perithyroidal anatomy, as well as its clinical significance in the use of prevention techniques for complications during the US-guided procedures.Knowledge of these areas may be helpful for maximizing the efficacy and minimizing the complications of US-guided procedures for the thyroid and other neck lesions.

ABSTRACT
Ultrasonography (US)-guided procedures such as ethanol ablation, radiofrequency ablation, laser ablation, selective nerve block, and core needle biopsy have been widely applied in the diagnosis and management of thyroid and neck lesions. For a safe and effective US-guided procedure, knowledge of neck anatomy, particularly that of the nerves, vessels, and other critical structures, is essential. However, most previous reports evaluated neck anatomy based on cadavers, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging rather than US. Therefore, the aim of this article was to elucidate US-based thyroidal and perithyroidal anatomy, as well as its clinical significance in the use of prevention techniques for complications during the US-guided procedures. Knowledge of these areas may be helpful for maximizing the efficacy and minimizing the complications of US-guided procedures for the thyroid and other neck lesions.

Transverse ultrasonography images of thyroid vessels.A. Superior thyroid artery (white arrowhead) supplies upper and anterior part of thyroid gland, and inferior thyroid artery (black arrowhead) supplies postero-inferior parts of gland. B, C. Pseudoaneurysm of thyroid artery (arrow) can be induced by inserting needle or electrode during procedure.

Figure 17: Transverse ultrasonography images of thyroid vessels.A. Superior thyroid artery (white arrowhead) supplies upper and anterior part of thyroid gland, and inferior thyroid artery (black arrowhead) supplies postero-inferior parts of gland. B, C. Pseudoaneurysm of thyroid artery (arrow) can be induced by inserting needle or electrode during procedure.

Mentions: Injury to the superior or inferior thyroid artery can be induced by inserting the needle or electrode at the upper and anterior part of the thyroid gland (Fig. 17). Injury to the inferior thyroid artery is more likely to result in serious problems. Because it occurs at the posteroinferior part of the thyroid gland, direct compression of the neck is less effective for bleeding control, and may cause a large amount of hematoma.
