Authors: Kay MD, Morris-Wiseman LF, Beazer A, Winegar BA, Kuo PH Abstract A 56-year old male received a total thyroidectomy, bilateral central and right lateral neck dissection for papillary thyroid carcinoma with lymph nodes metastases. Prior to radioiodine ablation the pre-therapy 123I scan established the diagnosis of primary nasolacrimal duct obstruction (dacryostenosis). PMID: 31604890 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aims at verifying the existence of this association in a retrospective series of patients who underwent thyroid surgery. METHODS: Two hundred eighty-five consecutive patients (202F, 83M, mean age 57 years) who underwent at least total thyroidectomy (TT) and had a complete clinical and biochemical pre- and postoperative evaluation were included in the study. Patients were evaluated with regard to: sex, age, indications for surgery, operative time, number of accidentally removed parathyroids, extent and time of surgery, thyroiditis, final histology, pre- and postoperative levels of calcium, magnesium, vitamin ...

We report two young men who presented with submental nodal metastasis from PCT. Both underwent total thyroidectomy with central compartment neck dissection and modified radical neck dissection (MRND). Probable factors which might influence submental nodal metastasis are analyzed. We conclude that physicians should be aware of the possibility of submental nodal metastasis from PCT. A selective approach for neck dissection can be an alternative to MRND, reducing the morbidity in management of such cases.

Authors: Ding Y, Mao Z, Ruan J, Su X, Li L, Fahey TJ, Wang W, Teng L Abstract Background and Objectives: The clinicopathological risk factors to predict recurrence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) patients remain controversial. Methods: PTC patients treated with thyroidectomy between January 1997 and December 2011 at the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University (Zhejiang cohort) were included. Multivariate Cox regression analysis was conducted to identify independent recurrence predictors. Then, the nomogram model for predicting probability of recurrence was built. Results: According to Zhejiang co...

Authors: Seitz D, Todt I, Boga E, Yasin A, Sudhoff H Abstract Ectopic thyroid gland tissue can occur either as the only detectable thyroid gland tissue or in addition to a normotopic thyroid gland. After a total thyroidectomy thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) can induce a compensatory volume increase of previously asymptomatic ectopic tissue. This hyperplastic ectopic tissue can occur as an unclear cervical space-occupying lesion. Prior to surgical exploration of an unclear cervical mass the possibility of ectopic thyroid tissue should be included in the differential diagnostic considerations. PMID: 31578600 [P...

AbstractBackgroundEvidence is lacking regarding the potential association between daily variation in individual surgeon ’s operative time, procedure after procedure, and risk of patient complication. We assumed that surgeon deviation from the expected procedure duration may be harmful for patient.MethodAll patients who underwent a thyroidectomy undertaken in five hospitals during a 1-year period were included prospectively. For each thyroidectomy, we estimated the expected operative time from a multilevel linear regression considering the attending surgeon who performed the operation, the patient preoperative risk, a...
