Abstracts from Journal of Thyroid Disorders & Therapy
Exophthalmos, myxedema and osteoarthropathy (EMO) comprise the triad known as EMO syndrome. Thyroid dysfunction followed by Graves’ ophthalmopathy (GO) commonly was its classic manifestation. The elephantiasic variant was rarely seen. Herein, we reported an unusual case of EMO syndrome associated with severe elephantiasic .. Read More
Introduction: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease characterized by a symmetrical inflammation of the synovium, resulting in tenderness and destruction of bone and cartilage in various joints, particularly the smaller joints of the hands and feet. Although the cause of RA is unknown, autoimmunity pl.. Read More
Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) is a curable disease because most patients have only one adenoma and can fully recover after adenoma removal at the location determined by preoperative imaging. However, many Japanese surgeons believe that intraoperative intact PTH measurement (IOPM) is essential to the surgery. He.. Read More
Background: TSH assays have long been showing discordances, especially in the upper limit of the reference range. There is thus a need to improve TSH measurement and detection of thyroid dysfunction. This study aimed at evaluating the ability of new TSH assays to detect early thyroid deficiency in a healthy population with no su.. Read More
Aim: To review our own experience with Frozen section (FS) in thyroid surgery and to assess its value in the management of patients with thyroid disease.
Methods: This retrospective study examined the results of 1110 frozen sections of thyroid specimens analyzed over the 10 year period from 2003 through 2012 and their correlati.. Read More
The study of clinical ocular manifestations recruited 105 patients who presented to the Endocrine and Eye clinics of Lithuanian University of Medical Sciences with a history of thyroid diseases. The study comprised two groups of patients: the group I included 36 patients (under 18 years) and the group II-69 (from 18 to 34 years).. Read More
A rare complication of post-thyroidectomy asphyxia developed in a patient with relapsed Grave’s disease. Causes of the asphyxia were preoperative tracheal narrowing, previous thyroidectomy related diffuse oozing, and long-term use of Methimazole resulting in thrombocytopenia. The patient was successfully resuscitated by re.. Read More
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the ultrasonographic united stiffness score system (UUSSS) in diagnosing thyroid nodules, and retrospectively analyze the discrepancy between acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) and real-time elastography (RTE).
Methods: 170 conventional ultrasound (US) proven thyroid nodules i.. Read More
Background: The Robotic Thyroidectomy (RT) is a minimally invasive surgical technique initially developed in Asia, for cultural reasons. The principles of its use are still undergoing development. Showing to all appearances satisfying outcomes, the long-time safety and medico-economic benefit of the procedure have not been estab.. Read More
Background: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has an increase in popularity as a definitive bariatric operation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate excess weight loss (EWL) and the change in thyroxin (T4) requirement in morbidly obese patients with clinical hypothyroidism after LSG.
Methods: Between June 2012 and Jun.. Read More
Background: To present for the first time a clinical case of a patient with giant neglected and exulcerated tall-cell papillary thyroid cancer, who was surgically treated.
Methods: We report a case of a 73-year-old woman with large firm infiltrated and exulcerated anterior neck tumefaction (12 cm in diameter) clinically suspect.. Read More
Ultrasound evaluation of the thyroid gland is relatively easy in most cases with excellent visualization of the gland with linear transducer allowing clear characterization of lesions as well as guidance for biopsy. However when retrosternal thyroid tissue extension is present, evaluation may be difficult. We report the simple u.. Read More
Aim: Studying the value of the surgical loupe in the enhancement of performing safe thyroidectomy via dissection of the major structures which are vulnerable to injury during the operation.
Subjects and methods: 150 patients with benign and malignant thyroid masses underwent near total or total thyroidectomy at Zagazig universi.. Read More
Background: Though neck ultrasound is the first line of choice for the screening of thyroid nodules, very few studies have compared the diagnostic performances of both conventional and advanced ultrasound parameters. In this study, we aim to compare various conventional and advanced ultrasound imaging parameters and confirm it w.. Read More
Objective: To evaluate the present nutritional status of iodine among euthyroid pregnant women by measurement of urinary iodine levels.
Material and Methods: 381 pregnant women attending antenatal clinic in the obstetrics and gynaecology department were included in study. Out of 381, 285 euthyroid women were selected as study p.. Read More
Background: The major disorders of thyroid gland are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and thyroid disorders are predominantly of autoimmune etiology in pregnant women. To date there is no study done in Ethiopia to show pattern and pregnancy outcomes of pregnant women with thyroid disorders.
Objectives: To assess pattern of th.. Read More
Background: There continues to be controversy on the clinical relevance of elderly mild subclinical hypothyroidism (SH), defined as a TSH elevation (4.0-9.99 μIU/L) with normal free thyroxin levels.
Objective: To compare physical performance (PP) in elderly individuals with a TSH level above normal range versus normal coun.. Read More
Thyroid disorders, especially thyrotoxicosis, are commonly associated with hepatic dysfunction, but cholestasis is rarely reported. Heart failure, infection, weight loss may play role in the pathogenesis of cholestasis. Cholestasis could be worsened by treatment of hyperthyroidism using Thiamazole, but cholestasis in undia.. Read More
Background: Primary thyroid lymphoma is a rare type of thyroid cancer. It accounts for 1 to 5% of all thyroid cancers and 1 to 2% of all lymphomas outside the lymph nodes. Frequently, based on histology and fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNA), it is difficult to distinguish between anaplastic carcinoma and thyroid lymphoma. Open.. Read More
Introduction: Subacute thyroiditis is a self-limited, inflammatory viral thyroid disease which presents with neck pain usually accompanied by systemic symptoms. On the other hand, thyroid storm is a clinical condition of severe sudden hyperthyroidism accompanied by physiologic de-compensation. Case report: We presented a 29-yea.. Read More
