To compare the therapeutic effects of open surgery and endoscopic surgery for thyroid carcinoma, 160 thyroid carcinoma patients treated in Jilin Cancer Hospital from June 2014 to April 2018 were selected as subjects and randomized into the study and the reference groups, with 80 cases in each group. The reference group was subjected to open surgery, while the study group had endoscopic surgery and the therapeutic outcome of the 2 groups was compared. The surgical indices of the 2 groups used for comparison included, operation time, intraoperative bleeding, surgical incision length and length of stay. Results indicated a significant advantage in the study group over the reference group. Degree of pain was evaluated using the visual analog scale and this score was significantly lower in the study group. The incidence of adverse reactions was significantly lower in the study group relative to the reference group. Endoscopic surgery appeared to provide better results for thyroid carcinoma patients with better safety and reliability.
