Radiofrequency ablation of benign thyroid nodules: Value of the anterolateral hydrodissection technique

Yeong Jeong So , Baek Jung Hwan , Rom Chung Sae , Jun Choi Young , Hyun Lee Jeong

Purpose: To evaluate the technical feasibility, efficacy, and safety of the anterolateral hydrodissection (ALHD) technique in radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for benign thyroid nodules.Methods: Between November 2019 and April 2020, 39 patients underwent 41 sessions of RFA with ALHD technique for treatment of benign thyroid nodules. ALHD was performed with cold (0°C–4°C) 5% dextrose solution during RFA to minimize pain and secure sufficient s...

Muscle endocrinology and its relation with liver disease

Miguel Peteiro Miranda Carlos , Jorge Ortez Toro José , Sanz Martín Borja , Román Gimeno Sergio , Urdaniz Borque Rosana , Antonio Gimeno Orna José , Julia Ocón Bretón María

Background: Evidence suggests that muscle mass depletion is associated with poor clinical outcomes in clinical population. However, the significance of sarcopenia in the liver transplantation (LT) population remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to investigate the prevalence and the impact of sarcopenia and sarcopenic obesity in cirrhosis patients awaiting LT.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent LT at our center between Jan...

Reducing unnecessary thyroid fine needle aspiration using ACR--TIRADS system

Alhambra Expósito Mª Rosa , Barrera-Martín Ana , Rebollo-Román Ángel , Segui-Azpilcueta Pedro , Ángeles Gálvez-Moreno María

Introduction: Thyroid ultrasound is the main technique to study this gland’s pathology. ACR TI-RADS system evaluates the malignancy risk in thyroid nodules according to their sonographic features and stablishes the size in which to perform fine needle aspiration (FNA) for its cytological study. Nodules diagnosed as Bethesda category 4 (B4) means are follicular neoplasms or suspicious for follicular neoplasms.Aim: Determine the pathology diagnosis o...

Clinical approach after a Bethesda 4 result in a thyroid cytology

Alhambra Expósito Mª Rosa , Barrera-Martín Ana , Rebollo-Román Ángel , Segui-Azpilcueta Pedro , Ángeles Gálvez-Moreno María

Introduction: Thyroid nodules are a very common finding in sonographies (20–75% people). Criteria for clinical management and for cytological diagnosis (-Bethesda system) are well standardized. In spite of this, a gap of knowledge exists as far as management of Bethesda 4 is concerned.Aim: Evaluate the clinical approach of Bethesda 4 (B4) result in a thyroid cytology.Material and Methods: Retrospective study of thyroid nodule...

Bone mineral density evolution after Denosumab withdrawal

Mª Rosa Alhambra Expósito , Ana Barrera-Martín , Ángel Rebollo-Román , José Manuel Quesada Gómez , Maria Angeles Galvez Moreno

IntroductionDenosumab (Dab) withdrawal is associated with a quick loss in bone mineral density (BMD) and a high risk of multiple vertebral fractures. It is still not stablished which strategy best prevents BMD loss after Dab discontinuation.AimCompare the use of bisphosphonates for one year after Dab withdrawal versus a tapering Dab regimen in terms of BMD and fracture occurrence.Method...
