ConclusionsPostoperative neck US surveillance after total thyroidectomy with prophylactic central neck dissection is not essential in PTC patients who show excellent response to initial therapy. Future studies are needed to verify the role of US surveillance in patients who receive variable degrees of treatments.
CONCLUSION: Prophylactic central neck dissection significantly reduced the risk of recurrence in the central compartment in patients undergoing hemithyroidectomy. PMID: 32434311 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: Propofol suppresses migration, invasion, and EMT in papillary thyroid carcinoma cells by regulating miR-122 expression. The findings may indicate significant clinical implications for anesthetic agents to prevent metastasis and improve outcomes in papillary thyroid carcinoma. PMID: 32432774 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: MiR-224-5p promotes cell migration, invasion, and EMT in PTC by targeting EGR2. PMID: 32432752 [PubMed - in process]
AbstractAlthough prior studies have reported that patients with anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) with a focal anaplastic component may have a prolonged survival compared to other ATC patients, the outcome data are limited. We evaluated a cohort of ATC resected between 2003 and 2018. Tumor slides were reviewed to confirm the diagnosis and to identify cases with a minor ATC component (defined as comprising
This study investigated a rare ultrasonographically detected thyroid petal-like calcification and its relationship with thyroid carcinoma and biological behavior. We described the clinical and ultrasonographical features of thyroid nodules with petal-like calcifications in 18 patients undergoing thyroid surgery and cervical lymph node dissection. All of the thyroid nodules with petal-like calcifications were papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs). Of the 18 patients, 13 (72.2%) had cervical central lymph node metastasis, and five (27.8%) had cervical lateral lymph node metastasis. Petal-like calcifications occurred in maligna...

Authors: Domagala P, Domagala W Abstract One of the key parameters in the diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) are true nuclear pseudoinclusions (NPs), which constitute invaginations of the cytoplasm into the nucleus. On the other hand, strong cytoplasmic expression of CK19 is a well-known attribute of PTC tumor cells. We analyzed NPs using CK19 immunohistochemistry in histological sections of 52 PTCs and seven noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasms with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTPs). Strong CK19+ NPs were present in 77% of PTCs...
