Introduction: Thyroid nodules can be detected by ultrasound (US) in 20–30% of unselected populations. Various non-surgical techniques such as laser and radiofrequency ablation have been developed to reduce thyroid nodule size. High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation is a new, non-invasive method that has been shown recently. The aim of our study was to assess the long-term efficacy and safety of US-guided HIFU treatment of benign solid thyroid nodules.<p cla...

The nodular goiter is the most prevalent thyroid disorder. Its prevalence increases with age and reaches over 70%. The aim of the study was to compare the nodule prevalence in two population-based studies, carried in Bulgaria in 2006 and 2012.Material and methods: Two thousand four hundred and two subjects (1347 female and 1053 male, age range 20–94 years) were included in 2006 and 2022 (1073 female and 949 male, 20–88 years) in 2012. All subje...

The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship among the indices of insulin resistance (IR), the lipid parameters and thyroid function in euthyroid adults.Material and methods: Two hundred and sixteen euthyroid adults, mean age 57.08±13.81 years (112 female and 104 male) were included. Serum lipirds, Immunoreactive insulin, glucose, TSH, waist circumference (WC), body height and weight were measured. HOMAi and BMI were calculated.<p cl...
