ConclusionsThe VANS method is a feasible, safe, and cost-effective procedure with clear cosmetic advantages over conventional surgery.

Following publication of the original article , the authors reported that there has been a mistake regarding the unit of duration of surgery, consciousness recovery time, and extubation time in Table 1; the...
ConclusionThis case draws attention to the unique clinical value of molecular testing in the diagnosis of MTC. The authors believe this case supports the consideration for molecular testing to prevent missed diagnoses in cases of rare benign-appearing disease.
The near-infrared light imaging device identifies parathyroid glands well before visualization with the naked eye, enabling surgeons to better avoid damaging them, with the potential to reduce hypocalcemia.Medscape Medical News
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.
