The objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and long-term outcome of comprehensive lateral neck dissection (LND) of levels II-V for recurrent or persistent WDTC in a tertiary referral center. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed our standardized approach of LND for recurrent WDTC in the lateral neck compartment. Survival was analyzed by Cox-regression analysis. RESULTS: Three-hundred and seven patients underwent 429 LND for cytopathology confirmed lateral neck recurrent WDTC at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center between 1994 and 2012. The vast majority (90%) of patients were trea...

Authors: Valderrabano P, Khazai L, Thompson ZJ, Leon ME, Otto KJ, Hallanger-Johnson JE, Wadsworth JT, Wenig BM, Chung CH, Centeno BA, McIver B Abstract BACKGROUND: Management recommendations for thyroid nodules rely primarily on the cytological diagnosis. However, 25% of the biopsies render an indeterminate cytology for which management decision is more challenging due to heterogeneity of the specimens. We aimed to stratify the cancer risk through subcategorization of indeterminate cytology. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the indeterminate cytological specimens (Bethesda-III or IV) of 518 thyroid nodules ...

Authors: Kosior-Jarecka E, Wróbel-Dudzińska D, Łukasik U, Żarnowski T Abstract THE AIM: The aim of this study was to assess general and ocular profiles of patients with single-localisation changes in visual field. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group consisted of 215 Caucasian patients with normal-tension glaucoma with scotoma on single localisation or with preperimetric glaucoma. During regular follow-up visits, ophthalmic examination was carried out and medical history was recorded. The results of the visual field were allocated as paracentral scotomas, arcuate scotomas, peripheral defects, or hemi...

Authors: Nikfarjam M, Wilson JS, Smith RC, Australasian Pancreatic Club Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy Guidelines Working Group Abstract INTRODUCTION: In 2015, the Australasian Pancreatic Club (APC) published the Australasian guidelines for the management of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (http://pancreas.org.au/2016/01/pancreatic-exocrine-insufficiency-guidelines). Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) occurs when normal digestion cannot be sustained due to insufficient pancreatic digestive enzyme activity. This may be related to a breakdown, at any point, in the pancreatic digestive chain: pancreatic ...

Conclusion Many people use medicines like paracetamol or ibuprofen for aches and pains. There's no suggestion from this study that occasional use to manage a headache or muscle strain is harmful. But the study is a reminder that regular use – defined by the researchers as two days or more a week – could have health consequences over time. However, this study has some limitations. As a cohort study, it can't prove cause and effect between paracetamol and NSAIDs and hearing loss. And it mainly included white women, all in the US, so we don't know if the results apply to other groups. Also, the increased risk ...

Authors: Monzani D, Genovese E, Pini LA, DI Berardino F, Alicandri Ciufelli M, Galeazzi GM, Presutti L Abstract As L-type voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) control Ca(2+) influx and depolarisation of cardiac and vascular smooth muscle, they represent a specific therapeutic target for calcium channel blockers (CCBs), which are approved and widely used to treat hypertension, myocardial ischaemia and arrhythmias. L-type currents also play a role in calcium entry in the sensory cells of the inner ear. In hair cells of both cochlea and labyrinth, calcium cytoplasmic influx is the first physiological process that ac...
