Abstract

In the present day, modern thyroid surgery, the endocrine surgeon, and the patient have the option of many different modalities of technology that has revolutionized thyroid surgery at the expense of increased financial burden, and insurance is not available to cover these new technologies in the developing world. We describe our “poor man\'s neuromonitoring” where the only thing the surgeon needs is the intent to have a conversion intermittently and this guides the knife-happy surgeon near recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) dissection.
