Subclinical thyroid dysfunction and cardiovascular consequences: An alarming wake-up call?

Trends Cardiovasc Med 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

School of Medicine, Athens University, Athens, Greece. Electronic address:

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction (STD), presenting as subclinical hypothyroidism (SHypo) or subclinical hyperthyroidism (SHyper), defined as abnormal serum thyrotropin (TSH) and normal free thyroid hormones, is associated with increased cardiovascular (CV) risk and mortality. Depending on the degree of such dysfunction, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias, predominantly atrial fibrillation, characterize both disorders and increase CV and total mortality compared to euthyroid persons. There are some differences in the mechanisms involved in the increased CV risk incurred by each type of STD, with more traditional CV risk factors clustered in SHypo than in SHyper, while the role of the TSH or its absence thereof, together with the respective, even subtle, changes incurred in thyroid hormone concentrations, seem to adversely influence the CV system in both types of STD.

3 Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Modena, Modena, Italy.

Background: In the past 20 years, the fast spread of new surgical technologies has reached an important peak with the advent of the robotic surgery. Many studies have been run about a cosmetic desire to avoid neck scars after thyroid surgery and this has led to the development of remote access robotic thyroidectomy (RT). Among the various RT approaches, unilateral transaxillary access is one of the most widely used, reporting excellent results in terms of feasibility and patient's compliance. Read More

Is calcium supplementation always needed in patients with hypoparathyroidism?

Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 2019 Feb 23. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

The Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Oral calcium salts are recommended for the treatment of chronic hypoparathyroidism (HypoPT), although dosimetry is variable between individual patients and clinicians. However, patient feedback on calcium salts can be negative, particularly due to gastrointestinal side effects and hypercalciuria-related complications. We begin with a clinical case of a HypoPT patient taking oral calcium salts following thyroid surgery, who requested support in reducing her dose of these with a view to stopping entirely. Read More

Implementation of the European Laryngological Society classification for pediatric benign laryngotracheal stenosis: a multicentric study.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Mar 22;276(3):785-792. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Katharinenhospital, Kriegsbergstrasse 60, 70174, Stuttgart, Germany.

Purpose: The European Laryngological Society (ELS) has published a revised classification for benign laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS), based on their degree, longitudinal extension, and associated comorbidities. We retrospectively applied this classification to pediatric patients treated in four referral centers to assess its reliability in predicting surgical outcomes.

Methods: We included 191 pediatric LTS patients treated by segmental resection, restaged according to the degree of stenosis (I-IV according to Myer-Cotton grading system), number of subsites involved ("a" to "d" for 1-4 subsites among supraglottis, glottis, subglottis and trachea), and presence of systemic comorbidity ("+" sign).
