CONCLUSION: Utilizing a large North American DTC registry, we found the prevalence of de novo TgAb detection to be 5% among initially TgAb negative patients. We did not find a statistically significant association between de novo TgAb development and DTC structural recurrence. Larger prospective studies are required to confirm these findings and further assess the significance of de novo TgAb detection in the follow up of DTC.

Authors: Roselli V, Tarsitani L, Mandarelli G, Maraone A, Magliocchetti V, Bersani FS, Biondi M, Pasquini M Abstract PURPOSE: One of the most consistent models investigating the relationship between premorbid personality and depression was described by Tellenbach.

Previous studies showed a relationship between unipolar depression and TM. The primary hypothesis of this study was that patients affected by unipolar depressive disorders bare more of TM-...

CONCLUSIONS: The psychometric properties of the Italian version are satisfactory and confirm that CPDI is a tool fast, non-intrusive, administered online, and therefore 'safe' in a phase with a high risk of contagion. It allows, like a psychic thermoscan, to quickly detect the needs of the population and propose equally rapid interventions. PMID: 32489191 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Hernandez A, Nuñez JH, Sallent A, Gargallo-Margarit A, Gallardo-Calero I, Barro V Abstract Backgroud: Untreated osteonecrosis of the femoral head ultimately leads to secondary coxarthrosis. The aim of this study was to determinate if the core decompression of the femoral head combined with implantation of autologous bone marrow concentrate with tricalcium phosphate could be used to prevent radiographic progression of early stage osteonecrosis of the hip. We also sought to determine whether this treatment improved clinical outcomes and reduced the need for total hip arthroplasty. Methods: Eightee...

Authors: Park I, Oh MJ, Shin SJ Abstract For proper treatment of recurrent anterior instability of the shoulder with a bone defect, the defect size should be assessed preoperatively with three-dimensional computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. In general, the risk of postoperative recurrence of instability is estimated on the basis of preoperative imaging of bipolar bone defects: more than 20%-25% glenoid bone loss and off-track Hill-Sachs lesions have been considered risk factors for recurrence. In patients with a glenoid bone defect more than 20%-25%, a bone graft procedure, such as the Latarjet proce...
