In this key lecture, Dr. Lorincz presents the main principles of nerve monitoring and vagal automatic periodic stimulation (APS) in robotic thyroid surgery. He provides a brief description of the identification of external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) & describes the main principles of the electrophysiologic changes in APS and compares it to the normal procedures without APS, referring to meta-analyses & research data.
