Conclusion: TES can make an assistant effect on sedation and decrease Cp50 of propofol. But the haemodynamic fluctuations in TES group, especially the HR changes, seem to be more obvious than those in control group.
This article describes the first reported case of myasthenia gravis (MG) seropositive for both acetylcholine receptor antibody and low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 4 antibody, complicated by autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type 3. The patient exhibited myasthenic weakness restricted to the ocular muscles and ptosis. Severe clinical deterioration ensued with predominant bulbar symptoms. MG rapidly worsened, the patient was intubated, and agranulocytosis due to thiamazole was also present, so it was necessary to perform thyroidectomy with tracheostomy and thymectomy in two phases. Both the double-sero...
Circulating angiogenic factors have been associated with clinical outcomes of papillary thyroid carcinoma, although they may also be released in the context of benign multinodular goiter. We sought to investigate the effect of thyroidectomy on the activity and importance of multiple circulating angiogenic factors in papillary thyroid carcinoma and benign multinodular goiter.

CONCLUSIONS: In our experience we report that the use of IONM in MIVAT is as helpful to improve the safe of procedure. The risk of nerve palsy in literature associated to MIVAT is the same of the related one to classic technique (CT). We haven't identify a statistical positivity to use IONM in MIVAT related to MIVAT without IONM. In our previous experience cases series of MIVAT the percentage of transitory nerve palsy reported was 2,4% (p=ns). The most important IONM effect, in our opinion is the "safety feeling" experienced by the surgeon using IONM in a more challenging procedure. As a University Hospital, trai...
CONCLUSIONS: Our data show that our protocol, including serum ionized calcium on 1st, 2nd, 7th days and PTH on 7th day after surgery, is safe and low cost and therefore may be useful in the post surgical management of total thyroidectomy. PMID: 32456391 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Ultrasound and isotopic studies will be requested only by a small proportion of Thai endocrinologists. Higher physician preference for ATD is similar to Europe, Latin America, and other Asian countries. Geographical differences in the use of ATD, radioactive iodine, and thyroidectomy exist.

AbstractHypocalcemia is the most common complication after total thyroidectomy. The aim of this study was to determine the predictors of postoperative hypocalcemia requiring augmentation of routine calcium supplementation. Prospectively collected data of 61 patients who underwent total thyroidectomy from December 2018 to June 2019 was considered for the study. All patients received calcium and vitamin D supplementation after the surgery. In the postoperative period, serum calcium and parathormone (PTH) levels were monitored. The need of additional oral or intravenous (i.v.) calcium supplementation was evaluated as an outco...
