Training in intraoperative neuromonitoring of recurrent laryngeal nerves reduces the risk of their injury during thyroid surgery.

Arch Med Sci 2021 7;17(5):1294-1302. Epub 2019 Jun 7.

1 Department of General and Endocrinological Surgery, Medical University of Bialystok, Bialystok, Poland.

Introduction: Even though incidence of recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy (RLNP) is low, it affects importantly the quality of life of patients and remains one of main medicolegal litigation problems in surgery. Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) has become widely accepted tool helping in recurrent laryngeal nerve identification, however no clear association of IONM with RLNP rate has been demonstrated. The aim of our study was to assess whether training in IONM influences rates of RNLP after thyroid surgery as an independent factor. Read More

Core needle biopsy and ultrasonography are superior to fine needle aspiration in the management of follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinomas.

Endocrine 2021 Sep 9. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Department of Pathology and Translational Genomics, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: Follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) is a problematic entity. FVPTCs are often misdiagnosed by the standard fine needle aspiration (FNA); in addition, FVPTCs represent a mixed group of tumors with two biologically distinct subtypes: The indolent encapsulated FVPTC and the aggressive infiltrative FVPTC. Recent changes in guidelines suggests that FVPTC management may be improved if subtypes can be determined preoperatively. Read More

Acrylamide induces a thyroid allostasis-adaptive response in prepubertal exposed rats.

Curr Res Toxicol 2020 Jun 31;1:124-132. Epub 2020 Oct 31.

Laboratory of Reproductive Toxicology, Department of Medicine, State University of Central-West, Rua Simeao Camargo Varela de Sa, 03, 85040-080 Parana, Brazil.

Some endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can affect the endocrine system through covalent interactions with specific sites, leading to deregulation of physiological homeostasis. The acrylamide (AA) present in some fried or baked foods is an example of an electrophile molecule that is able to form adducts with nucleophilic regions of nervous system proteins leading to neurological defects. A positive correlation between increased urinary AA metabolite concentration and reduced levels of thyroid hormones (TH) was described in adolescents and young adults. Read More

Hemodial Int 2021 Jul 6. Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Harold Simmons Center for Chronic Disease Research and Epidemiology, University of California Irvine School of Medicine, Orange, California, USA.

Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction is a highly prevalent yet under-recognized complication in hemodialysis patients. In the general population, hypothyroidism has been associated with endothelial dysfunction due to impaired vasodilator synthesis and activity. Little is known about the association of serum thyrotropin (TSH), the most sensitive and specific single biochemical metric of thyroid function, with endothelial function in hemodialysis patients.

Radiomics Score Combined with ACR TI-RADS in Discriminating Benign and Malignant Thyroid Nodules Based on Ultrasound Images: A Retrospective Study.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2021 Jun 1;11(6). Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Ultrasound, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing 400010, China.

This study aimed to explore the ability of combination model of ultrasound radiomics score (Rad-score) and the thyroid imaging, reporting and data system by the American College of Radiology (ACR TI-RADS) in predicting benign and malignant thyroid nodules (TNs).

Pro-Oxidative Effect of KIO and Protective Effect of Melatonin in the Thyroid-Comparison to Other Tissues.

Life (Basel) 2021 Jun 21;11(6). Epub 2021 Jun 21.

Department of Oncological Endocrinology, Medical University of Lodz, 7/9 Zeligowski St., 90-752 Lodz, Poland.

Not only iodine deficiency, but also its excess may contribute to thyroid cancer. Potassium iodate (KIO), which is broadly used in the salt iodization program, can increase oxidative damage to membrane lipids (lipid peroxidation, LPO) under experimental conditions, with the strongest damaging effect at KIO concentration of ~10 mM (corresponding to physiological iodine concentration in the thyroid). Melatonin is an effective antioxidant, which protects against KIO-induced LPO in the thyroid. Read More
