Authors: Karaca O, Pınar HU, Turk E, Dogan R, Ahiskalioglu A, Solak SK Abstract PURPOSE: Non-opioid medications as a part of multimodal analgesia has been increasingly suggested in the management of acute post-surgical pain. The present study was planned to compare the efficacy of the combination of pregabalin plus ıv ibuprofen. METHODS: 58 patients were included in this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study. The pregabalin group (Group P, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin, the pregabalin plus ibuprofen group (Gropu PI, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin and 400mg ıv ibuprofen before surgery. Postop...
In conclusion, FRAX without femoral neck BMD reflects bone status, and may be useful to diagnose osteoporosis in Japanese women aged 55 and above, although the sensitivity was low for osteoporosis screening, especially in middle-aged women. PMID: 29151451 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort, recent pregnancy was not associated with high-risk pathological features of differentiated thyroid cancer. These findings provide reassurance with regards to the concern that pregnancy may act as a potential stimulus for thyroid cancer growth. PMID: 29160171 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this meta-analysis indicates that diagnostic radiation exposure is associated with an increased thyroid cancer risk. Therefore, to the extent that it will not compromise the information being sought, radiation exposure to the thyroid should be minimized during diagnostic examinations.

CONCLUSIONS: The flavonoid rutin seems to be an important stimulator of radioiodide uptake, acting at multiple levels, an effect that can be due to decreased oxidative stress, reduced AMPK activation, or both. Since thyroid iodide uptake is crucial for effective radioiodine therapy, our results suggest that rutin could be useful as candidate for adjuvant in radioiodine therapy.

Authors: Valderrabano P, Khazai L, Thompson ZJ, Sharpe SC, Tarasova VD, Otto KJ, Hallanger-Johnson JE, Wadsworth JT, Wenig BM, Chung CH, Centeno BA, McIver B Abstract BACKGROUND: Indeterminate categories of thyroid cytopathology (categories B-III and B-IV of the Bethesda system) are integrated by a heterogeneous spectrum of cytological scenarios that are generally clustered for analysis and management recommendations. It has been suggested that aspirates exhibiting nuclear atypia have a higher risk of malignancy. We assess whether cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules with nuclear atypia have a significantly ...
Abstract The approach to i.v. fluid therapy for hypovolaemia may significantly influence outcomes for patients who experience a systemic inflammatory response after sepsis, trauma, or major surgery. Currently, there is no single i.v. fluid agent that meets all the criteria for the ideal treatment for hypovolaemia. The physician must choose the best available agent(s) for each patient, and then decide when and how much to administer. Findings from large randomized trials suggest that some colloid-based fluids, particularly starch-based colloids, may be harmful in some situations, but it is unclear whether they shou...
n C Abstract Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has proven to reduce AAA-related mortality, but how the knowledge of having an untreated AAA affects health and daily life requires further clarification. The aim was to investigate the psychosocial consequences and sense of coherence (SOC) in 65-year-old men diagnosed with AAA and participating in a national screening program during a 6-month follow-up compared with men with no AAA. The single-center cohort study included 52 men with AAA and 118 men without AAA. A questionnaire including the Short Form 36 Health Survey, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Sca...
