Impact of rocuronium on intraoperative neuromonitoring vagal amplitudes during thyroidectomy.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2021 Jun 12. Epub 2021 Jun 12.

Department of Surgery (CVMC), Unit of Metabolic, Endocrine, and Thyroid Surgery, Université de Lorraine, CHRU Nancy-Brabois (7Eme Étage), Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy, France.

Papillary thyroid microcarcinoma: is active surveillance always enough?

Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 2021 May 21. Epub 2021 May 21.

Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Royal North Shore Hospital Sydney, Australia.

The incidence of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) has increased over recent decades. This apparent epidemic has been attributed to the overdiagnosis of small PTC ≤ 10mm in diameter (PTMC) incidentally detected on imaging for unrelated presentations. While most PTMC follow an indolent disease course, there is a small but significant proportion of cases that display more biologically aggressive features such as early metastasis and lymph node involvement.

How to identify indolent thyroid tumors unlikely to recur and cause cancer death immediately after surgery-Risk stratification of papillary thyroid carcinoma in young patients.

Endocr J 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Hospital Pathology, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.

Current histopathological diagnosis methods cannot distinguish the two types of thyroid carcinoma: clinically significant carcinomas with a potential risk of recurrence, metastasis, and cancer death, and clinically insignificant carcinomas with a slow growth rate. Both thyroid tumors are diagnosed as "carcinoma" in current pathology practice. The clinician usually recommends surgery to the patient and the patient often accepts it because of cancer terminology.

Total Thyroidectomy vs Thyroid Lobectomy for Localized Papillary Thyroid Cancer in Children: A Propensity-Matched Survival Analysis.

J Am Coll Surg 2021 Apr 3. Epub 2021 Apr 3.

Section of Endocrine Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Chicago Medicine. Chicago IL USA.

Introduction: Current guidelines recommend total thyroidectomy (TT) and radio-ablation for most papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) in children. These guidelines have been criticized as aggressive, especially for early-stage PTC, as it likely does not influence patient survival and results in life-long thyroid hormone replacement. We sought to study whether the extent of thyroidectomy (TT vs. Read More

Advancements in the treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer.

Ther Adv Endocrinol Metab 2021 17;12:20420188211000251. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Department of Endocrine Surgery, Columbia University, 161 Fort Washington Ave, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10032, USA.

Derived from follicular epithelial cells, differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) accounts for the majority of thyroid malignancies. The threefold increase in DTC incidence over the last three decades has been largely attributed to advancements in detection of papillary thyroid microcarcinomas. Efforts to address the issue of overtreatment have notably included the reclassification of encapsulated follicular variant papillary thyroid cancers (EFVPTC) to non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP).

Calcitonin-Negative Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Thyroid Gland: Case Report and Literature Review.

Case Rep Oncol 2021 Jan-Apr;14(1):112-122. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Department of Surgery Oncology, Medica Sur Clinic & Foundation, Mexico, Mexico.

Calcitonin-negative neuroendocrine tumor (CNNET) of the thyroid is an extremely rare entity. In some of the previously reported cases within the literature, the terms "atypical medullary thyroid carcinoma," "calcitonin-free oat cell carcinoma," and "a distinct clinical entity" were applied to NETs without definitive evidence of calcitonin production. In the English-language literature, not only are there only few reported cases of CNNET, but the criteria for diagnosis in these cases are also controversial. Read More
