47 patients with large multinodular goiters and "non-Graves" hyperthyroidism were treated surgically or given radioiodine therapy. The severity of the disease and cardiac complications were comparable in each group. Results favor subtotal thyroidectomy if the disease is other than mild or if atrial fibrillation is present.
