McHenryGraves' disease is an autoimmune disorder caused by thyroid stimulating auto-antibodies directed against the thyrotropin receptor on thyroid follicular cells. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism and is associated with cardiovascular, ophthalmologic and other systemic manifestations. Three treatment options are available for Graves' disease: anti-thyroid drugs, radioactive iodine and thyroidectomy. While thyroidectomy is the least common op...

Authors: Park MY, Nam SE, Park KS, Saindane M, Yoo YB, Yang JH, Ahn AL, Choi JK, Park WS Abstract Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of postthyroidectomy obesity, and the relationship between the extent of thyroidectomy and obesity. Methods: A survey conducted at an outpatient clinic from June to October 2014 and retrospective charts for patients undergoing thyroidectomy at Konkuk University Medical Centers from June 2009 to December 2013 were reviewed. We compared clinical characteristics and pre- and postoperative obesity-related factors in 227 patients who underwent total th...

Authors: Ullmann TM, Gray KD, Limberg J, Stefanova D, Moore MD, Buicko JL, Finnerty BM, Zarnegar R, Fahey T, Beninato T Abstract Background Health insurance has been shown to be a key determinant in cancer care, but it is unknown to what extent insurance status affects treatments provided to papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) patients. We hypothesized that insured patients with papillary thyroid cancer would have lower-risk tumors at diagnosis and be more likely to receive adjuvant therapies at follow-up. Methods The American College of Surgeons' National Cancer Database was queried to identify all patients diagnosed w...

CONCLUSIONS: The highest preoperative, lowest postoperative, and change in PTH level can help us reliably calculate the trend of postoperative calcium level. Decision to pursue early interventions can be made based on the calculated result from the formula we obtained. PMID: 31510765 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Parathyromatosis is a rare entity and usually appears as a consequence of the seeding on previous parathyroid surgery which was applied for the secondary hyperparathyroidism. A 63-year-old woman presented with a history of subtotal thyroidectomy 20 years ago and parathyroidectomy due to primary hyperparathyroidism four years ago. Imaging methods revealed multiple parathyromatosis foci on subcutaneous tissue of the neck. En-bloc resection was performed and pathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of parathyromatosis. After an uneventful 10 months, biochemical and radiological tests revealed recurre...

Symptomatic hypocalcemia is a common complication of total thyroidectomy. Management strategies include responsive treatment initiation for symptoms or prevention by routine or parathyroid hormone-directed calcium supplementation. The comparative cost-effectiveness of even the most often utilized strategies is unclear.
