Introduction: In recent years, micro papillary thyroid carcinomas (mPTCs; ≤1.0 cm) are increasingly diagnosed. Although clinical course is usually favourable, disease persistence may occur and multiple treatments needed. We examined factors that could be predictors of clinical behaviour and disease persistence.Patients and methods: 478 mPTC patients (78.9% females) followed-up for 0.6–10 years were classified according to tumour size in group ...

Objectives: In familial MTC there is genotype-phenotype correlation. The phenotype and clinical outcome in exon8 (G533C) carriers has not been well established.Methods: 95 patients operated for familial MTC (27.2% males) were followed for 0.9–30 years (mean 8.0, median 5.5 years). 45.3% (n=43) were exon8 carriers (exon8MTC) and the remaning were non-exon8MTCs (n=52, exons 10, 11, 13, 14, and 16). Pre-, postoperative calcitonin, ext...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate predictors of metabolic disease in normal weight postmenopausal women.Patients and Methods: This cross-sectional study included 457 non-obese postmenopausal women, recruited from the Menopause Clinic of Aretaieio Hospital, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The diagnostic criteria of the International Diabetes Federation for the definition of Metabolic Syndrome were used, in order to classi...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between a personal history of lactation and indices of subclinical atherosclerosis and arterial stiffness in postmenopausal women.Patients and methods: This cross-sectional study included 283 postmenopausal women. Sonographically assessed indices of vascular function [pulse wave velocity (PWV)] and vascular structure [intima-media thickness (IMT), atherosclerotic plaque presence] were te...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of hypertension and to identify potential risk factors in healthy, non-diabetic recently postmenopausal Greek women with normal renal function.Patients and methods: In this retrospective cohort study, we evaluated 141 recently postmenopausal women at baseline and annually thereafter (follow-up time: 1 to 8 years). Blood samples were obtained and ultrasound evaluations were performed at ...

Introduction: Metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are well-known long-term implications of the menopausal transition. Lifestyle practices like exercise could potentially act protective with regards to future cardiovascular risk at midlife. We aimed to assess the impact of physical activity on the development of subclinical CVD in postmenopausal women, adjusting for the effect of underlying obesity.Methods: This cross-sectional study from ...
