Impact of incidental parathyroidectomy and mediastinal-recurrent cellular and lymph-node dissection on parathyroid function after total thyroidectomy
ConclusionHypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy is a complex, probably multifactorial issue. Systematic parathyroid gland identification is not recommended due to the increased risk of gland lesion, mainly by devascularization. Incidental parathyroidectomy may induce hypocalcemia at 1 month postoperatively (statistically “suggestive” association). (Source: European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases)

Absence of high-risk human papilloma virus in p16 positive inverted sinonasal papilloma
ConclusionSince only 2 out of 38 SIPs were positive for HPV (type 11), and at the same time p16 was positive in epithelia in all samples and in 37 of 38 papilloma lesions of the samples, it is concluded that p16 cannot be used as a surrogate marker for high-risk HPV-infection in SIP. We are currently planning a prospective, multicenter study in order to increase the study power and in order to be able to better evaluate the clinical implications of HPV-and p16 in SIP.
