Thyroglossal duct remnant carcinoma: beyond the Sistrunk procedure.
TLDR
The literature on TGDR carcinomas is reviewed, the evidence on the available diagnostic tools is presented, the surgical and post-operative medical management strategies are identified, current controversies are discussed, and a management algorithm is concluded.
Laparoscopic and open reversal of Hartmann’s procedure—a comparative retrospective analysis
TLDR
Laparoscopic reversal of Hartmann’s procedure is a safe and practical alternative to open reversal and can be performed with similar operative time, fewer complications, and a faster recovery time.
Lithium-associated hyperparathyroidism: report of four cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
There are apparently two different mechanisms leading to LAH: exacerbation of a pre-existing state of hyperparathyroidism and multiglandular disease; and the use of the recently developed calcimimetics may offer an alternative to patients who are not candidates for surgery.
The Diagnostic and Prognostic Role of microRNA in Colorectal Cancer - a Comprehensive review
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the scientific literature describing the dysregulation of and the potential role for microRNA in the management of colorectal cancer is provided.
Incidence and Localization of Ectopic Parathyroid Adenomas in Previously Unexplored Patients
TLDR
Assessment of the utility of ultrasonography (US) and technetium-99m-sestamibi (MIBI) scans in locating ectopic parathyroid glands in previously unexplored patients who presented with primary hyperparathyroidism concluded that MIBI has a higher sensitivity than US in correctly localizing ectopicParathyroid adenomas, but the accuracy of detection varies based on location.
Predictors of Recurrence in Primary Hyperparathyroidism: An Analysis of 1386 Cases
TLDR
The operative approach does not independently predict recurrent hyperparathyroidism and the percentage decrease in IoPTH is one of many adjuncts the surgeon can use to determine which patients are best served by bilateral exploration whereas the postoperative PTH can guide follow-up after parathyroidectomy.
Application of a novel severity grading system for surgical complications after colorectal resection.
TLDR
This novel complication reporting system was found feasible and proved to have a higher sensitivity for recording minor but meaningful complications that tend to prolong hospital stay.
The Role of Gender in Primary Hyperparathyroidism: Same Disease, Different Presentation
TLDR
Hyperparathyroidism appears to present differently depending on gender, with male patients more often present without symptoms, present with vitamin D deficiency, and have larger parathyroid glands.
Multifocality in well-differentiated thyroid carcinomas calls for total thyroidectomy.
TLDR
Multifocal and contralateral lesions are common in PTC and their incidence is not related to tumor size and pathology entire gland examination is strongly recommended to properly assess the rate of mPTC.
Prospective validation of a surgical complications grading system in a cohort of 2114 patients.
TLDR
Prospectively validate the complication grading system for surgical complications supports its use in a general surgery setting as a tool for surgical outcome assessment and quality assurance.
