Traditional open operations for lateral neck dissection in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma leave an unsightly scar. We report complete lateral neck dissection and thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid carcinoma using an endoscopically-assisted approach through a small incision, and evaluate its feasibility and safety. Between March 2010 and January(More)
TERT is the catalytic subunit of telomerase which plays an essential part in cellular immortality by maintaining telomere integrity. TERT is commonly over-expressed in human malignancies, indicating its key role in cell transformation. The chromosome 5p15.33 TERT-CLPTM1L region has been associated with susceptibility of multiple cancers via a genome-wide(More)
BACKGROUND Few reports have discussed life- threatening bleeding that occurs postoperatively in patients who have undergone thyroid surgery. In this article, we discuss the causes, treatment measures, and possible ways of preventing this severe complication. MATERIAL AND METHODS From Jan 2002 to Dec 2014 we retrospectively analyzed 7 patients who developed(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical features of familial non-medullary thyroid cancers, and to discuss their management. METHODS Sixty thyroid cancer patients with familial non-medullary thyroid cancer (FNMTC) history during Sep. 2003 to Sep. 2012 were collected as study group, and another 60 sporadic thyroid cancer patients were randomly chosen as control.(More)
The role of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) HOX transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR) and its functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is still largely unclear. Therefore, we investigated the involvement of lncRNA HOTAIR and its three haplotype-tagging SNPs (htSNPs) in PTC. There was higher expression of HOTAIR in PTC(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify risk factors for bleeding after thyroid surgery, and discuss the potential relevance between the bleeding timing and sources. METHODS A total of 2568 cases that underwent thyroid operation from June 2012 to June 2013 were collected and analysed retrospectively the risk factors for postoperative bleeding by Cox and the potential(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the management of vascular crisis of free flaps after reconstruction of head and neck defects caused by tumor resection. METHODS A total of 259 cases of free flap reconstruction performed in the Cancer Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences from 2010 to 2013 were retrospectively analyzed, including 89 cases of anterolateral(More)
