    Osteitis fibrosa cystica-a forgotten radiological feature of primary hyperparathyroidism.
    Endocrine 2017 Nov 12;58(2):380-385. Epub 2017 Sep 12.
    Department of Medicine, Endocrinology Division, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.
    Although bone disease and stone disease are the universally accepted classical manifestations of primary hyperparathyroidism, clinical parathyroid bone disease is rarely seen today in the United States (<5% of patients) and Western Europe. Nevertheless, in a given patient, classical skeletal involvement can be the first sign of primary hyperparathyroidism, but not recognized because it is not usually included, anymore, in the differential diagnosis of this manifestation of skeletal disease. We describe four cases of primary hyperparathyroidism in which the first clinical manifestation of the disease was a pathological fracture that masqueraded as a malignancy. Read More

    Background: Well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC) has a high predilection for regional metastatic spread. Rates for WDTC lateral neck recurrence are reported to be as high as 24% in patients after initial thyroidectomy, lateral neck surgery, and adjuvant radioactive (RAI) iodine treatment. The objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and long-term outcome of comprehensive lateral neck dissection (LND) of levels II-V for recurrent or persistent WDTC in a tertiary referral center.

    Background: Postoperative hypocalcaemia due to dysfunction of the parathyroid glands is the most common complication after total thyroidectomy plus central neck dissection (CND). There is a lack of surgical techniques described to help preserve the inferior parathyroid gland in situ during CND. The objective of this study was to introduce the 'TBP layer' (layer of thymus-blood vessel-inferior parathyroid gland) concept for preserving the inferior parathyroid gland in situ during CND, and to evaluate its effectiveness.
