Simultaneous bilateral transperitoneal laparoscopic adrenalectomy (SBTLA)

Juhasz Ferenc , Kanyari Zsolt , Gyory Ferenc , Lukacs Géza

Background and Purpose: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has become the preferred surgical approach to manage adrenal disorders. Bilateral adrenalectomy is performed for diseases that are unresponsive to medical management and, frequently, for neoplastic disease. The aim of this study was to review our experience with laparoscopic bilateral adrenalectomy and to evaluate its safety, efficacy, and outcomes.Patients and Methods: Between May 1999 and May 2005, fou...

Papillary thyroid cancer – the possible role of death ligands in tumor immunology

Mezosi Emese , Gyory Ferenc , Borbely Agnes , Ujhelyi Bernadett , Soos Gyorgyike , Nagy Endre V. , Varga Zsuzsa , Bajnok Laszlo

Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) cells and immune cells can kill each other by death ligands. Death ligands induce apoptosis only in sensitive cells. The sensitivity to apoptosis is regulated in a complex and poorly understood manner. The aim of this study was to investigate the Fas ligand (FasL) and Tumor Necrosis Factor-Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) expression in PTC cells and tumor infiltrating immune cells. Twenty-six PTCs without and fifteen PTCs with cervical l...

Galgoczi Erika , Katko Monika , Erdei Annamaria , Bodor Miklos , Ujhelyi Bernadett , Steiber Zita , Gyory Ferenc , V. Nagy Endre

Objectives: Glucocorticoids (GCs) are the first line therapy in moderate to severe, active thyroid eye disease (TED). While their beneficial immunosuppressive effects are well known, direct connective tissue effects are less characterized. The accumulation of extracellular matrix component hyaluronan (HA) and increased proliferation rate of fibroblasts are hallmarks connective tissue changes in TED. We examined the effect of methylprednisolone (MP), prednisolone (P), hydrocort...

The impact of post-radioiodine therapy SPECT/CT on risk stratification in differentiated thyroid cancer; a bi-institutional study

Objective: SPECT/CT has numerous advantages over planar and traditional SPECT images. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of post-radioiodine therapy SPECT/CT of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) in early risk classification and in prediction of late prognosis.Patients and Methods: 323 consecutive patients, 181 at the University of Pecs and 142 at the University of Debrecen, were investigated after their first radioiodine treat...
