ConclusionsThe BR method does not increase the remission rates. It may be useful to combine L-T4 with a medium dose of methimazole when GD is difficult to manage with methimazole alone. It may represent a therapeutic option to postpone definitive treatments to a suitable age.

CONCLUSIONS: Similar to the classical minimally invasive FTC, MV-FTC appears to behave indolently. MV-FTC has a high rate of false-negative FNAC results, but MV-FTC is very rare (

We report a case of a 47-year-old female known with metastatic papillary thyroid cancer. Her treatment history included total thyroidectomy and 3 previous radio ablations with a cumulative dose of 950 mCi of131I. On follow-up, her thyroglobulin levels had demonstrated a rising trend (from 3789.0 to 4240.0 ug/L) despite a123I whole-body scan demonstrating a reduction in tracer avid lesions. She was suspected of having radio-resistant disease. The patient underwent both18F-FDG and68Ga-PSMA PET/CT imaging with both scans demonstrating congruent lesions however with far greater intensity on the68Ga-PSMA study.

Authors: Zhang D, Famá F, Caruso E, Pinto G, Pontin A, Pino A, Mandolfino T, Gagliano E, Siniscalchi EN, De Ponte FS, Sun H, Dionigi G Abstract Transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy by vestibular approach (TOETVA) represents an innovative and scarless technique for thyroid surgery. The procedure is conducted via a three-port technique at the oral vestibule using a 10mm port for the 30° endoscope and two additional 5mm ports for the dissecting and coagulating instruments. Patients meeting the following criteria can be considered as candidates for TOETVA: (a) an ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid dia...

ConclusionWe demonstrated that for low-risk DTC patients after thyroidectomy, some institutions offered only follow-up, while RIT with significant activities is recommended in others. For intermediate- and high-risk patients, radioiodine treatment is generally recommended. Dosing and treatment preparation (recombinant human thyroid stimulation hormone (rhTSH) vs. thyroid hormone withdrawal (THW)) vary significantly among centres.
