Is detection of braf mutation enough to decide prophylactic central neck dissection (CND)?

Paja Miguel , Exposito Amaia , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Martinez Adela L , Monzon Andoni , Oleaga Amelia

Introduction: Most recent ATA thyroid nodule/DTC guidelines recommend thyroidectomy without prophylactic CND for small (T1 or T2), non-invasive, clinically node-negative PTC (cN0). However, some studies have suggested an association between the BRAFV600E mutation and the risk of nodal disease. Moreover, BRAF V600E mutation have recently showed significant association with recurrence in solitary intrathyroidal PTC between 2 and 4 cm (pT2) making suitable a more aggressive treat...

DOC secreting adrenal adenoma, a rare cause of hypertension

Paja Miguel , Dublang Maddalen , Zabalegui Alba , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Exposito Amaia , Espiga Javier

Secondary endocrine hypertension affects around 10% of all hypertensive population, most frequently primary aldosteronism (PA). Less frequent forms of adrenal hypertension include pheochromocytomas and other causes of mineralocorticoid excess than PA, featuring suppressed renin without excess of aldosterone. Featuring. We present a 29-year-old woman with difficult to control hypertension diagnosed two years before and poor response to ACEI and ARA II treatment. She was referre...

Surgical correlation of thyroid nodules categorised as potential follicular neoplasms in core-needle biopsy (CNB)

In our centre we use CNB for routine study of thyroid nodules since 2005. Four diagnostic categories for CNBÂ’s results have been standardised: insufficient; benign; follicular proliferation (FOL), including follicular and oncocytic neoplasms; and malignant. Diagnosis of FOL was defined according to the presence of microfollicular patterned biopsies with scant or absent colloid, sometimes with minimal pleomorphism or discrete nuclear changes. This category could be equival...

Clinical and biological differences between incidental and non-incidental papillary thyroid microcarcinomas

Paja Miguel , Etxebarria Eider , Gutierrez Ma Teresa , Exposito Amaia , Dublang Maddalen , Oleaga Amelia , de Ciriza Maite Perez , Ugalde Aitziber

The clinical significance and potential morbidity of papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMC) is discussed. Particularly the differences between those PTMC identified postoperatively in histological examination (incidentals), and those diagnosed preoperatively (non-incidentals). We retrospectively analysed differences in clinical presentation and course after treatment in these two groups. The study population consisted of 199 patients with PTMC who underwent surgery from 2000...

Predictive factors of postoperative hypoparathyroidism after total thyroidectomy

Paja Miguel , Etxeberria Eider , Calles Laura , Exposito Amaia , Ugarte Estibaliz , Moreno Cristina , Lizarraga Aitzol , Espiga Javier , Oleaga Amelia

Introduction: Hypoparathyroidism (hypoPT) is the most frequent complication after thyroid surgery, usually as transient hypocalcaemia. Permanent parathyroid lesion is less frequent, but it can extend hospital stay and complicate postoperative management. Several preoperative factors predicting the development of hypoPT have been identified, including advanced age, hyperthyroidism, surgical experience and others. We evaluate the role of some potentially predictive factors in ou...

Serum thyroglobulin (sTg) before surgery in euthyroid patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC)

Paja Miguel , Lizarraga Aitzol , Exposito Amaia , Teresa Gutierrez M , Barrios Borja , Iglesias Natalia C , Zabalegui Alba , Arrizabalaga Cristina , Martinez Adela L , Oleaga Amelia

sTg is universally accepted as the best marker of disease status in DTC. Its presurgical serum level may suggest the presence of distant metastasis in case of very high level, but the correlation between its level and the characteristics of the tumour is yet to be defined.Objective: To evaluate preoperative thyroglobulin as predictor of DCT features.Methods: Preoperative sTg was measured in patients operated for DTC between 2011&#1...
