Papanastasiou Labrini , Gravvanis Christos , Tournis Symeon , Markou Athina , Kalantzi Athanasia , Zoulias Manolis , Georgakopoulou Georgia , Pagoni Stamatina , Kounadi Theodora

Bariatric surgery is a common treatment for morbidly obese patients requiring weight loss and/or metabolic control. Vitamin D (VitD) deficiency and bone loss may occur post-operatively and supplementation with high oral doses of Vitamin D is required. Alternatively, intramuscular depot ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) which slowly releases VitD and overcomes the gastrointestinal tract, could be administrated in such patients.Aim: To present a case of severe V...

Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCs) and paragangliomas are rare tumours occurring in about 0.6 cases per 100,000 person-years. Biochemically silent PCs with normal catecholamine levels due to lack of catecholamine secretion or subtle secretion within the established normal levels are even rarer. Up to date, biochemically silent PCs are poorly investigated.Aim: To assess the pre-, peri- and post-operative characteristics of patients with biochemically s...
