The influence of cure of subclinical hyperthyroidism on diastolic diameters of heart chambers and cardiac index

Kaminski Grzegorz , Podgajny Zbigniew , Szalus Norbert

Introduction: Subclinical hyperthyroidism (SH) affects about 1% of population. The diagnosis of this disease leans on the laboratory criteria only: decreased of TSH and normal FT3 and FT4 levels. SH increases mortality mostly due to cardiovascular diseases including arrhythmia and overload of the heart. Enlarging of heart chambers is one of the cause of arrhythmia, and cardiac index is one of indicators of heart after load.Aim: To e...

Our experience in visualization of non-radioiodine-avid differentiated thyroid carcinoma (NRADTC)

Podgajny Zbigniew , Kaminski Grzegorz , Szalus Norbert

Introduction: Lack of radioiodine uptake in differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) is a big diagnostic and therapeutic problem. This sign is associated with worse prognosis. In NRADTC patients with elevated thyreoglobulin levels with no evidence of disease in radioiodine scintigraphy, scintigraphy with the somatostatin analog labeled with 99mTc seems to be an alternative imaging method.Aim: Assessment of scintigraphy with the somatostatin anal...

Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of renal: a rare case report

Budlewski Tadeusz , Szydlarska Dorota , Szalus Norbert , Kijek Jolanta , Chrapko Beata Ewa

We report a case of local recurrence and multiple lymph node and pulmonary metastases of renal carcinoid 1 year after nephrectomy in a 61-year-old woman. Primary renal carcinoid tumor arising from renal parenchyma or renal pelvis is a rare neoplasm. The patient was incidentally found to have a mass lesion in the left kidney and left nephrectomy was performed. Histological examination including immunohistochemical for chromogranin A and synaptophysin studies confirmed the diagn...

Introduction: The patients with inoperable hormone - secreting pituitary tumours are treated with cold somatostatin analogues, but it is not always effective. DOTA-TATE preparation is a somatostatin analogue coupled with β (−) emitter 90 Y. The efficacy of the treatment is based on excessive expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTR) in these tumours.The aim of the study: To assess the feasibility of treatment of pituitary tumours ...
