Outcomes of Patients With Acute Type A Aortic Intramural Hematoma
TLDR
The clinical outcome of IMH patients receiving treatment by the institutional policy was comparable to that of surgically treated AD patients, however, adverse clinical events were not uncommon with medical treatment alone, and initial aorta diameter and hematoma thickness may identify patients who might benefit from urgent surgery.

TLDR
There was a significant positive correlation between the numbers of resected malignant lymph nodes and the reduction in stimulated thyroglobulin level after reoperation, suggesting surgery is an effective option for managing locally recurrent/persistent PTC.
Obesity is a risk factor for thyroid cancer in a large, ultrasonographically screened population.
TLDR
Obesity was associated with a higher prevalence of thyroid cancer in women when evaluated in a routine health checkup setting, and this association between risk factor and disease was unrelated to serum insulin and TSH levels.
Serum antithyroglobulin antibodies interfere with thyroglobulin detection in fine-needle aspirates of metastatic neck nodes in papillary thyroid carcinoma.
TLDR
FNA-Tg measurement is highly reliable in the diagnosis of neck metastases in PTC patients, even in cases of negative-stimulated Tg or positive TgAb, however, high-serum TGAb levels could interfere with FNA- Tg measurements and thereby result in falsely low FNA -Tg levels.
Postoperative Findings of the Cytological Diagnosis of Follicular Neoplasm or Hürthle Cell Neoplasm and the Risk of Malignancy
TLDR
About half of the patients with FN or HN on FNA cytology were diagnosed as having thyroid cancer after surgery, and the malignancy rate for the cytologic diagnosis of HN was similar to that for FN.
Long-term clinical outcome of differentiated thyroid cancer patients with undetectable stimulated thyroglobulin level one year after initial treatment.

TLDR
Although repeated sTg measurement can be helpful to predict recurrence, it could not recommend it for surveillance in patients with BR due to its very low yield.
The prognostic value of the metastatic lymph node ratio and maximal metastatic tumor size in pathological N1a papillary thyroid carcinoma.
TLDR
It is suggested that risk stratification of pathological N1a PTC according to the pattern of LN metastasis such as LN ratio and size would give valuable information to clinicians.
Adjuvant radioactive therapy after reoperation for locoregionally recurrent papillary thyroid cancer in patients who initially underwent total thyroidectomy and high-dose remnant ablation.

TLDR
In patients who still have elevated sTg after reoperation for locally recurrent/persistent PTC, adjuvant RAI therapy compared with no additional RAi therapy resulted in no significant differences in the subsequent sTG changes or the recurrence-free survival.
Focal nodular hyperplasia or focal nodular hyperplasia‐like lesions of the liver: A special emphasis on diagnosis
TLDR
This work has investigated the clinical, radiological and pathological features of FNH and FNH‐like lesions of the liver, with particular focus on the aspect of diagnosis.
Adrenomedullin regulates cellular glutathione content via modulation of gamma-glutamate-cysteine ligase catalytic subunit expression.
TLDR
It is shown that AM increases gamma-glutamate-cysteine ligase (gamma-GCL) activity under both hypoxic and normoxic conditions, resulting in an up-regulation of cellular glutathione levels to more than 2-fold higher than basal expression, which may explain, in part, the mechanism by which AM protects cells against oxidative stress.
