Meta-analysis: Excess Mortality After Hip Fracture Among Older Women and Men
TLDR
Older adults have a 5- to 8-fold increased risk for all-cause mortality during the first 3 months after hip fracture, and excess annual mortality after hip fractures is higher in men than in women. Expand
Thyroid disease and female reproduction
TLDR
It is advisable to measure thyroid function and detect AITD in infertile women before ART, and to follow‐up these parameters after COH and during pregnancy when A ITD was initially present, as well as to treat women with thyroid dysfunction at early gestation stages with l‐thyroxine to avoid pregnancy complications. Expand
The role of thyroid autoimmunity in fertility and pregnancy
TLDR
Prevalence of thyroid autoimmunity is significantly higher among infertile women than among fertile women, especially among those whose infertility is caused by endometriosis or ovarian dysfunction. Expand
AcroBel--the Belgian registry on acromegaly: a survey of the 'real-life' outcome in 418 acromegalic subjects.
TLDR
This real-life survey reveals that only half of acromegalic patients received an adequate therapy resulting in cure or disease control when stringent biochemical criteria are used, and AcroBel provides an excellent tool to analyse the prevalence, incidence, treatment modalities and outcome. Expand
Thyroid dysfunction and autoimmunity in infertile women.
TLDR
It is shown that in infertile women, thyroid autoimmunity features are significantly more frequent than in healthy fertile controls and this was especially the case for the endometriosis subgroup. Expand
Cabergoline in the treatment of hyperprolactinemia: a study in 455 patients.
TLDR
The high efficacy and tolerability of cabergoline in the treatment of pathological hyperprolactinemia is confirmed, in a large-scale retrospective study, leaving few patients with unacceptable side effects or inadequate clinical response. Expand
Efficacy and tolerability of lanreotide Autogel therapy in acromegalic patients previously treated with octreotide LAR.
TLDR
L-Autogel appears to be as effective as octreotide LAR in lowering GH and IGF-I concentrations in acromegalic patients and this treatment was also well tolerated by the patients, giving fewer local side-effects and technical problems with injections. Expand
Female infertility and the thyroid.
TLDR
This review attempts to update the available information on the adverse effect of thyroid dysfunction and/or thyroid autoimmunity on subfertility and proposes a rationale for testing and potential treatment options. Expand
Fully endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery for functioning pituitary adenomas: a retrospective comparison with traditional transsphenoidal microsurgery in the same institution.
TLDR
Full endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery for functioning pituitary adenomas leads to a better endocrinologic outcome for noninvasive macroadenomas compared to the traditional microsurgical technique, however, morbidity with the endoscopic technique was higher in terms of the rate of postoperative CSF leaks. Expand
Incidence of Thyroid-Related Adverse Events in Melanoma Patients Treated With Pembrolizumab
TLDR
Thyrotoxicosis compatible with inflammatory thyroiditis was associated with diffuse increased 18FDG uptake by the thyroid gland, and Serial measurements of thyroid function tests are indicated during anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody therapy. Expand
