AIM The purpose of this prospective study was to highlight some new findings about anatomical and morphological variations of the thyroid pyramidal lobe and to emphasise the necessity and importance of exploration of the visceral compartment of the neck and resection of this structure in primary thyroid operations. METHOD We analysed 100 consecutive(More)
Molecular pathogenesis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is largely associated with mutational changes in the BRAF, RAS family and RET genes. Our aim was to assess clinico-pathological and prognostic correlations of these PTC-specific gene alterations, with a particular emphasis on the BRAF mutation, in a group of 266 Serbian PTC patients, for the first(More)
BACKGROUND The St. Gallen International Expert Consensus of 2011 proposes a new classification system for breast cancer based on its division into five subgroups. The criteria to identify these subtypes were recently refined at the 2013 Conference. In this respect, the authors of this paper have conducted a retrospective analysis of breast cancer subtypes,(More)
The presence of ectopic breast tissue in axillary lymph nodes (ALN) is a benign condition that must be differentiated from primary or metastatic carcinoma. Here we report a patient who underwent excision of enlarged ALN 10 years after she had received surgical treatment of ipsilateral breast for an intracystic intraductal papilloma (IDP). Histological(More)
Thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC) carcinoma is a comparable rare entity and treatment strategies have not been standardized. Here, we report a favorable outcome of TDC carcinoma patients based on our therapeutic strategy. Twelve patients with TDC carcinoma treated in our department from 1986 to 2012 were enrolled. Ten patients underwent Sistrunk's procedure in(More)
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) was defined as the first lymph node that the tumor would drain to, within that tumors regional lymphatic basin. In 1998, Kelemen and coworkers have published the first results on SLN lymphonodectomy in thyroid carcinomas. Different methods have been used in a goal of lymphatic mapping (application of vital blue dye and/or(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperprolactinemia is the most common disturbance in pituitary gland secretion. Functional diversity of prolactin action is responsible for different initial clinical expressions of hyperprolactinemia. PATIENTS AND METHODS We investigated causes of hyperprolactinemia in 11 children and adolescents (6 females and 5 males), aged from 1.5 to 17.5(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was quantitative assessment of parathyroid adenoma (PTA) uptake in dual tracer dynamic scintigraphy. METHODS In 78 patients, median age 58 (19-80) years, surgically treated for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), with parathyroid hormone median 125 (70-658) pg/ml, we performed preoperative parathyroid scintigraphy, following EANM(More)
The aim was to investigate whether the humoral immunity and overexpression of calreticulin in tumor tissue determined before surgery, correlate with incidence of metastases in breast cancer patients within two years after operation. Before operation, their humoral immunity and overexpression of caleticulin and Her-2/neu in tumor tissue were analyzed by(More)
Previous studies suggest that multiple transplantations might be equally efficient to a single regimen for human adult islets. The aim of this study was to compare metabolic parameters after each of the two regimens of human fetal islet (HFI) transplantation in type 1 diabetics. In group A (single transplant, n = 9), 180 +/- 20 x 1000 HFI equivalents (IEQs)(More)
