Dellal Kahramanca Fatma Dilek , Cuhaci Seyrek Fatma Neslihan , Alkan Afra , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: To determine whether multiple fine needle passes to the same thyroid nodule in the fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) session affect sufficient and/or atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS) cytological result.Materials and Methods: Ultrasonography (US) and cyto-histopathology results of the nodules of patients who were diagnosed with thyroid nodules and underwent FNA between May-August 2021 wer...

Are there any differences between demographic characteristics, preoperative ultrasonographic findings, and cytological results of patients with thyroid tumors of uncertain malignant potential and papillary thyroid carcinoma of classical and non-encapsulated follicular variants?

Baser Husniye , Topaloglu Oya , Tam Abbas Ali , Alkan Afra , Kilicarslan Aydan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Thyroid tumors of uncertain malignant potential (TT-UMP) has been accepted as a subgroup of follicular-patterned thyroid tumors for which benignancy or malignancy cannot be assessed exactly. We aimed to evaluate demographic characteristics, ultrasound (US) findings, and cytological results of patients with TT-UMP and compare these findings with the classical variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (CV-PTC) and non-encapsulated follicular variant of PTC (NEFV-PTC) ...

Which cytologic or architectural characteristics are associated with malignancy in AUS/FLUS cytologies according to subgroups?

Topaloglu Oya , Altinboga Aysegul , Cuhaci Fatma Neslihan , Aydin Cevdet , Baser Husniye , Yazicioglu Omer , Alkan Afra , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Atypia/follicular lesion of undetermined significance(AUS/FLUS) is a category of thyroid cytology with features that are neither definitely benign or malignant. We aimed to determine whether specific cytologic or architectural features are associated with malignancy in AUS/FLUS category of Bethesda system according to subgroups.Methods: The specimens of patients who underwent surgery with preoperative thyroid fine neeedle aspiration (FNA) biopsies o...

Is thyroid imaging reporting and data system useful in prediction of malignancy in thyroid nodules with persistent nondiagnostic cytology?

Baser Husniye , Topaloglu Oya , Faki Sevgul , Alkan Afra , Omer Yazicioglu Mustafa , Tatli Dogan Hayriye , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Although malignancy rate is low in thyroid nodules with nondiagnostic (ND) cytology, it is reported as higher in persistent ND nodules. We aimed to determine the role of ultrasonography (US) features and Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) in the prediction of malignancy in patients with persistent ND cytology.Methods: 246 patients who underwent thyroidectomy with an indication of at least two ND cytologies were included in t...

Higher thyrotropin can be used as an additional risk factor in prediction of malignancy in euthyroid thyroid nodules evaluated by cytology based on Bethesda system

Baser Husniye , Topaloglu Oya , Ali Tam Abbas , Evranos Berna , Alkan Afra , Sungu Nuran , Gurkan Dumlu Ersin , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Recently, it has been suggested that thyrotropin (TSH) concentration can be used as a marker for prediction of thyroid malignancy. However, the association between the cytology results and TSH levels is not clear. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between TSH levels and Bethesda categories and determine the role of TSH levels in prediction of malignancy in patients with different Bethesda categories.Methods: The data o...

The comparison of parathyroid neoplasms mappings evaluated by using gray scale ultrasound images and histopathological whole slide images

Yazgan Aylin Kilic , Topaloglu Oya , Seyrek Fatma Neslihan Cuhaci , Ozdemir Didem , Alkan Afra , Kilic Mehmet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: The aim of this study is to correlate the histopathological cell types and morphologic features of parathyroid neoplasms with ultrasound(US) images and laboratory findings, and also gain more information about the clinical importance of these results.Materials and methods: The parathyroid lesions of 57 patients who were operated for hyperparathyroidism were sampled on saggital plane. The slides were scanned on high resolution and digital whole slide...

The value of serum thyroglobuline alteration after ultrasonography-guided fine-needle biopsy of suspicous cervical lymph nodes in the diagnosis of metastasis in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer

Dilek Dellal Fatma , Aydin Cevdet , Ali Tam Abbas , Faki Sevgul , Alkan Afra , Şefika Burçak Polat , Dirikoc Ahmet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

AimIt is known that serum thyroglobulin (TG) can increase after fine-needle biopsy of thyroid nodules. We aimed to determine whether TG is increased after ultrasonography guided fine needle capillary biopsy (FNC) of suspicious cervical LNs in thyroidectomized patients and investigate the possible association between change in TG and cytology results.Material and methodsData of 188 patients who underwent FNC o...

Comparative analysis of five different ultrasonographical risk-stratification systems in the preoperative diagnosis of malignant and benign thyroid nodules

Dilek Dellal Fatma , Ali Tam Abbas , Şefika Burçak Polat , Omer Yazicioglu Mustafa , aydin cevdet , Ozdemir Didem , Alkan Afra , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

BackgroundOur aim was to compare the effectiveness of five different risk-stratification systems using the ultrasonographical features of thyroid nodules in determining malignant histopathology.MethodsThe preoperative ultrasonography (US) features of 6925 nodules of 3030 patients who underwent thyroidectomy between 2007 and 2014 were analyzed retrospectively. The nodules were classified according to Kwak-TIRA...

Background We aimed to determine clinicopathological features that can predict lymph node metastasis (LNM) in papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMC).MethodsMedical records of 872 patients with papillary thyroid cancer >1 cm (PTC >1 cm) and 1184 patients with papillary thyroid microcancer (PTMC) (£1 cm) were reviewed retrospectively. Demographical, clinical and histopathological features of (PTC >1 cm) ...
