Toetva- scarless thyroid surgery in hungary

Levay Bernadett , Oberna Ferenc

In thyroid surgery recently is a very important issue to maintain good cosmesis of the scar which can always be visible. Even smaller incisions have been utilized in order to improve satisfaction of the patient. In the last decades new endoscopic techniques have been applied using breast or axillary approach with unfavourable cosmetic outcome In the last couple of years there has been a development of a new endocopic technique known as transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy vestib...

Purpose: Recently, apatinib, an orally anti-angiogenic tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) is reported to be useful for treatment of progressive RAIR-DIC. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of apatinib and the combination therapy with radioactive iodine (RAI) in patients with progressive metastatic DTC.Methods: Five patients (all female mean age 62 ± 8 years, ranged from 51 to 69 years) with progressive distant metastatic DTC (dmDTC) after t...

Follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFT-P) showed peculiar ultrasonographic features compared to follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FV-PTC), follicular carcinoma (FTC) and follicular adenoma (FA)

Background: Up to 2016, NIFT-P was considered a non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FV-PTC) and was reclassified and downgraded to a pre-malignant lesion. However, if these nodules have peculiar ultrasonographic features able to pre-operatively suggest their histology is still a matter of discussion. We evaluated a large series of NIFT-P, FV-PTC, FTC, and FA to characterize their ultrasonographic features.Methods:...

Comparison of the clinicopathological features and oncologic outcomes of the classic papillary thyroid carcinoma with tall cell features and tall cell variant

Kim Kwangsoon

Background: The tall cell variant (TCV) of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) (TCVPTC) is the most common aggressive variant of PTC. Classic PTC with tall cell features (TCF) is defined as PTC with noticeable tall cells but the percentage of these cells is lower than that required for the diagnosis of TCVPTC. We aimed to investigate the potential differences between TCVPTC and classic PTC with TCF with respect to clinicopathological characteristics and long-term oncologic outco...

Incidence of non-diagnostic and undetermined cytologies in ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy specimens of thyroid nodules – a single-center cohort

Vendramin Andreja , Zupanc Davorin , Pirnat Edvard , Zaletel Katja , Bedernjak Bajuk Nataša , Bajuk Studen Katica , Jesenko Miha , Gaberšček Simona

Objectives: Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a commonly performed diagnostic procedure for evaluation of thyroid nodules. The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology comprises six categories. Bethesda categories I and III present a challenge for deciding on further diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Category I includes non-diagnostic or unsatisfactory results that may be due to both aspiration of cystic material from simple cysts or asp...

Elastography in the assessment of cold solid thyroid nodules

Bedernjak Bajuk Nataša , Bajuk Studen Katica , Pirnat Edvard , Gaberscek Simona , Zaletel Katja

Introduction: The prevalence of thyroid nodules detected by ultrasound (US) is up to 50% in general population and approximately 5−10% of them is malignant. Diagnostic assessment includes laboratory tests thyroid US and thyroid scintigraphy, where suspicious nodules are characteristically cold when using99m Tc-pertechnetate as a tracer. A useful tool for US-based risk stratification of thyroid nodules is Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS). Rece...

Follow-up and incidence of malignancy in eu-tirads 3 nodules with indication of fine needle aspiration cytology. a single-center descriptive study

de Herdt Carlien , Peiffer Frida , Nicolay Simon , Delrue Frank , Pauwels Patrick , Ysebaert Dirk , De Greef Kathleen , De Block Christophe

Background: Current guidelines recommend repeat evaluation of a benign thyroid nodule after 1 to 2 years, which is only based on expert opinion. Objective data are needed to evaluate this recommendation.Methods: This is a retrospective, descriptive study to describe the follow-up and incidence of malignancy in EU-TIRADS 3 nodules for which a fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was indicated between 2017 and 2022. PET-positive thyroid nodules and thyro...

Contribution of cyto-histological genetic profile to a precocious diagnosis in thyroid neoplasm

De Lurdes Godinho De Matos Maria , pinto mafalda , Alves Marta , Canberk Sule , Boaventura Paula , Goncalves Ana , Luisa Papoila Ana , Joao Bugalho Maria , Soares Paula

Introduction: The diagnostic gold standard for thyroid nodular disease is ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (US-FNAC), being the most accurate, cost-effective and minimal invasive preoperative test to distinguish benign from malignant nodules, aiming to resolve patient management. However, up to 30% of FNACs are classified as indeterminate nodules, turning difficult the decision on patient management to avoid unnecessary surgeries. The development of thyroid ca...

Prospective, observational study on radioiodine treatment in DTC patients with intermediate RISK or micro lymph node metastases

Blewaska Aleksandra , Ledwon Aleksandra , Paliczka-Cieslik Ewa , Sygula Aleksandra , Haras-Gil Malgorzata , Kropinska Aleksandra , Czarniecka Agnieszka , Handkiewicz-Junak Daria

There are much controversy adjuvant radioiodine treatment (131-I-th) in intermediate or low risk patients with lymph node micrometastases. The first results of ESTIMABL2 trial showed no radioiodine benefit in low risk DTC, however intermediate patients were not included in this study.Aim: Observational study was to evaluate effects of 131-I-th in intermediate/low risk DTC patients.Patients: There were 342 women (85%), the median ag...
