Very late cases, with degeneration of the heart, kidney, and liver, can be improved, but not completely cured, by partial thyroidectomy. The mortality in these cases will vary from 1 to 4 per cent. Combined operations are often indicated in bad cases — first ligating one or both superior vessel areas, and later doing a partial thyroidectomy. Local anesthesia is indicated in most ligations. Local or combined...
