Department of Cardiology, 147003Bursa Yüksek İhtisas Training and Research Hospital, İzmir, Turkey.

The C2HEST score ((coronary artery disease (CAD) or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [C2, 1 point each]; hypertension [H, 1 point]; elderly [E, age ≥75 years, 2 points]; systolic heart failure [S, 2 points]; thyroid disease [T, hyperthyroidism, 1 point]) has been validated for predicting incidental atrial fibrillation (AF) in both the general population and patients with ischemic stroke. The present study evaluated the performance of this score in predicting AF recurrence in 252 patients following cryoballoon ablation (CRYO) for paroxysmal AF. The AF recurrence rate in 3-12 months following CRYO was 20,2%. Read More

Association of Mild Thyroid Dysfunction and Adverse Prognosis Among Chinese Patients With Acute ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 28;13:879443. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Cardiology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Hypothalamic AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a canonical regulator of energy balance and metabolism at the whole-body level. This makes this enzyme an attractive target for treating energy balance-related diseases. However, targeting AMPK within the hypothalamus presents a challenge related to the specific cellular biodistribution of the enzyme and the need to use clinically safe methods of administration.

Radiofrequency Ablation of Solid Benign Thyroid Nodules.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2022 Jun 12;25(2):100819. Epub 2022 Mar 12.

Dotter Department of Interventional Radiology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR.

Symptomatic solid benign thyroid nodules may present either as nonfunctioning nodules causing compressive symptoms or as hyperfunctioning nodules causing symptoms of hyperthyroidism. While surgical resection or radioiodine ablation of these nodules can be performed, percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of benign solid thyroid nodules has been shown to be a safe and effective alternative in select patients. Preprocedural evaluation should include a history focusing on signs and symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, a physical exam, thyroid ultrasound, thyroid function tests, and discussion of key intraprocedural details with the patient such as the anesthesia plan and risks.

Venous Thromboembolism and Thymic Hyperplasia in the Setting of Silent Graves' Disease.

Cureus 2022 Apr 7;14(4):e23935. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

Internal Medicine, University of Central Florida College of Medicine/HCA Florida North Florida Hospital, Gainesville, USA.

Venous thromboembolism is a common, yet serious life-threatening condition that has many well-recognized associations which include but are not limited to pregnancy, polycythemia, trauma, immobility, and malignancy. The pathophysiology behind the pro-coagulant effects of hyperthyroidism has been well established; however, there are no current guidelines regarding deep venous thrombosis (DVT) surveillance in patients with hyperthyroidism. In this report, we discuss the case of a 36-year-old female with no significant past medical history (PMH) with the exception of a 15 pack-year smoking history, who presented to us with an extensive, rapidly-progressing lower extremity DVT.
