What do different echogenic micro-foci in papillary thyroid carcinoma nodules and metastatic lymph nodes represent in histopathology?

Bahcecioglu Begum , Gursoy Alptekin , Ilgan Seyfettin , Bilezikci Banu , Dizbay Sak Serpil , Erdogan Murat

Objective: Ultrasonographic (US) echogenic micro-foci are frequently seen in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). General belief is that microcalcifications represent psammoma bodies. But the subject is debatable and other sonographic intranodular echogenic figures can be seen in PTC. We aimed to examine the nonshadowing echogenic figures and their histopathological correlations in PTC.Methods: We prospectively collected US video records of PTC cases with ...

Localization studies in 443 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism by using a stepwise approach

Balcı Gulşah , Begum Bahcecioglu Mutlu Adile , Avcı Merdin Fatma , Erdogan Murat

Objective: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) is a common endocrine disorder diagnosed biochemically, common use of autoanalyzers increased the incidence of PHP throughout last decades. Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy has been preferred to the explorative surgical approach due to shorter operating time, lower complication rate, and smaller incision size. Thus localization studies have become very important. We aimed to investigate clinical and laboratory characteristics of...

Long-Term Effects of Radioiodine Treatment on Thyroid Functions, Thyroid Volume, Nodule Volume and Ultrasonographic Features in Patients with Toxic Adenoma and Toxic Multinodular Goitre

Koc Ilgın , Begum Bahcecioglu Mutlu Adile , Avcı Merdin Fatma , Araz Mine , Erdogan Murat

Background: Radioiodine(RAI) has been used to treat hyperthyroidism for more than seven decades. Effects of RAI treatment on thyroid function tests(TFT), risk of hypothyroidism, gland and autonomous nodule volumes and on ultrasonographic features in toxic adenoma (TA) and toxic multinodular goitre TMNG patients, have been previously studied by ourselves and other. However, studies evaluating ultrasonographic changes in thyroid and toxic nodule volumes usually have a follow-up ...

Quality of Life in Patients with Papillary Thyroid Cancer Assessed with The Turkish Version of The Thyroid Related Patient-Reported Outcome Questionnaire ThyPRO: A Prospective Single Center Study

Cıkın Boztuğ Cansu , Begum Bahcecioglu Mutlu Adile , Gullu Sevim

Background: Although the survival rate of papillary thyroid cancer is over 95%, the diagnosis of ’cancer’ and fear of recurrence may impair the quality of life of patients. There is no specific scale for patients with thyroid cancer, scales that can be used in the course of all chronic diseases and include the concept of general health are used to evaluate the quality of life in these patients. We aimed to evaluate the validity of the Thyroid Specific Quality of Life...

The effects of COVID-19 pandemic lockdown on metabolic control of people with diabetes

Adile Begum Bahcecioglu Mutlu , Sahin Mustafa , Asena Gökçay Canpolat , Corapcioglu Demet

AimsDuring April and May 2020 in Turkey, changing priorities in the health system and some restrictions on daily life in order to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection may worsen metabolic control of people with diabetes. We aimed to investigate whether glycemic dysregulation or disturbance of lipid metabolism occur in people with diabetes during the lockdown period.MethodsThis retrospective study includ...

Natural course of benign thyroid nodular disease in a borderline iodine-sufficient area: 10-year retrospective follow-up data from a tertiary center

Erdogan Murat , Bahcecioglu Begum , Avcı Merdin Fatma , Emral Rifat , Halil Elhan Atilla , Gullu Sevim

Objective: Thyroid nodules are common in the population more than 90% are benign. Data about the long-term follow-up of benign nodular thyroid disease is limited. We aimed to clarify, clinical outcome, frequency and magnitude of volume changes in cytologically and/or sonographically benign nodules in long-term(> 5 years) follow-up and to determine the predictive features of nodule growth.Methods: We retrospectively collected data of cytologically and...

Characteristics of diabetic foot patients admitted to department of endocrinology and metabolic diseases at ankara university, faculty of medicine

Canlar Sule , Cinel Murat , Mutlu Adile Begum Bahcecioglu , Emral Rifat , Bayram Dilek , Metinarikan Nuran , Yurdakul Birgul , Demir Ozgur , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Diabetic foot is one of the important and destructive complications of diabetes. During the life time of a diabetic patient, the risk of developing foot ulcers is around 5–15%, and about 20–25% of the causes of hospitalization in diabetic patients are due to foot ulcers. 40–80% of foot ulcers can be infected and resulted in osteomyelitis. Hospitalization due to osteomyelitis is 12 times more in diabetic patients than in non-diabetic population....
