Usefulness of thyroid echographic pattern description: predictive value at onset and in the evolution of thyroid diseases

Peretianu Dan , Staicu Daniela Cristea , Carsote Mara

Objectives: The study of the real indications for thyroid ultrasound and in which pathological conditions the echography is of real use and not for abuse.Material and methods: In the last 10 years, over 13 000 echographies were performed in 5136 consecutive patients for ‘thyroid disturbances’. In a previous paper we described 7 echographic patterns for thyroid ultrasound (9th ECE). The diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) was consider...

Thyroid investigation profile in patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis associated with other autoimmune disorders

Poiana Catalina , Peretianu Dan , Carsote Mara

Introduction: The prevalence of autoimmune disorders (AID) is more frequent in patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT).Aim: To see if the clinical and biochemical aspects are different among the patients with HT and if they change related to the systemic or organ specific AID.Material and method: A. HT was diagnosed on antithyroperoxidase antibodies (ATPO) over 34 UI/ml. B. 491 patients with HT were investigat...

Ultrasound patterns in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis

Peretianu Dan , Carsote Mara , Poiana Catalina

Objectives: To analyze the conceptual frame for a correlation between thyroid echographic description and antithyroid peroxydase antibodies (ATPO) levels in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT).Material-methods: A. 783 patients: 396 with HT (ATPO>34 UI/ml), 386-control (ATPO<34 UI/ml). B. Ultrasound aspects were described in 8 patterns: 0-thyroid lack; 1 – hypoechogenic and pseudonodular; 2 – hypoechogenic and homogenous; 3 &...

Treatment sequence after teriparatide

Valea Ana , Carsote Mara , Gheorghisan-Galateanu Ancuta Augustina

Introduction: Teriparatide is prescribed for severe osteoporosis based on national protocols. The osteoanabolic drug is followed by an anti-resorbtive medication.Aim: We analyze the treatment sequence options after Teriparatide in patients who finished the 2-year protocol or were early droppers.Material and method: This is a real life study based on Romanian protocol of Teriparatide for severe primary or/and glucocorticoid osteopor...

Physical performance in women with vitamin D deficiency

Capatina Cristina , Carsote Mara , Berteanu Mihai , Poiana Catalina

Introduction: VD deficiency is associated with the atrophy of muscle fibres (predominantly type II). This leads to decreased muscle force and general physical performance.Objective: To analyse the relationship between the serum concentration of 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25OHD), balance and physical performance in women with VD deficiency and the effect of VD supplementation or treatment with a VD analog.Materials and methods: We analys...

Increased osteoporotic fractures' risk in elderly patients with lower sodium levels

Trifanescu Raluca , Carsote Mara , Soare Dan , Poiana Catalina

Background: Low serum sodium levels were associated both in experimental studies and in clinical practice with increased prevalence of osteoporosis, due to decreased bone mineralization and increased osteoclastic activity. On the other hand, hyponatremia – independent of osteoporosis – is associated with fracture occurrence.Objectives: To assess the relationship between serum sodium levels and osteoporotic fractures.Patie...

Radiation-induced primary hypothyroidism in patients with head and neck cancer

Trifanescu Raluca , Ion Oana , Carsote Mara , Poiana Catalina

Background: Hypothyroidism is a frequent side effect of external radiotherapy of the cervical region for head and neck cancer. Up to 33% of irradiated patients developed primary hypothyroidism within 2 years after radiation therapy. The risk of hypothyroidism increases with radiation dose.Patients and methods: Four patients (2M/2F), aged 53.3±13.9 years, resident both in iodine sufficient (n=2) and iodine deficient areas (n=2), wer...

Relationships between antithyroperoxydase antibody levels, thyroid function and echographic patterns in chronic thyroiditis: December 2012

Carsote Mara , Poiana Catalina , Staicu DanielaCristina , Clodeanu Alexandrina , Peretianu Dan

Aim/objectives: To investigate relationships between thyroid function, antithyroperoxydase antibodies (ATPO), antithyroglobuline antibodies (ATG) and correlations with echographic pattern in Hashimoto thyroiditis and related diseases.Materials and methods: Diagnosis: i) ATPO >34 μ/ml=Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT); ii) ATPO=normal with high ATG=thyroiditis with only hyper-ATG (T-ATG). Thyroid function: TSH. Echographic patterns=10 (Peretianu, this C...

Evolution of thyroid function and antibodies in Hashimoto thyroiditis after 10 years observation. Study on 1000 patients

Peretianu Dan , Carsote Mara , Poiana Catalina , Staicu Cristina Daniela

Study: Retrospective, cohort.Material and methods: A. Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT) diagnosis: i) antithyroperoxydase antibodies (ATPO) criteria; cut-off >34 IU/ml. ii) If ATPO=normal (N), HT was considered only antithyroglobuline antibodies (ATG) were >50 IU/ml (↑) and ultrasound was pattern 1 (pseudonodular, intense hypoechogenic, inhomogeneous – Peretianu, Endocrine Abstracts, 2007, 14, P340; 2008, 16, P772; 2009, 20, P79).<p class...

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is not associated with breast cancer more than other thyroid condition or more than general population

Carsote Mara , Poiana Catalina , Staicu Cristina Daniela , Peretianu Dan

Premises: Numerous recent medical journals and communications insist on the high prevalence of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) associated with breast cancer in women (see key words: breast cancer, thyroiditis, #91).Objective: We proposed to present data from our casuistry related to HT (over 2000 patients and control, including men), observed during last 10 years.Mat...
