Postoperative parathyroid hormone level as a predictor of post-thyroidectomy hypocalcemia.
TLDR
Parathyroid hormone levels in conjunction with corrected calcium values are accurate predictors of the calcium trends of post-thyroidectomy patients, and implementation of this protocol can result in shorter hospital stays for the majority of patients, which can translate into substantial cost savings for the health care system.

Same‐day discharge after total thyroidectomy: The value of 6‐hour serum parathyroid hormone and calcium levels
TLDR
Patients who undergo total thyroidectomy will have postoperative hypocalcemia develop when they reach the critical 6‐hour serum levels defined as parathyroid hormone (PTH) ≥28 ng/L and simultaneous corrected calcium ≥2.14 mmol/L. Expand
Benefits Resulting from 1-and 6-Hour Parathyroid Hormone and Calcium Levels After Thyroidectomy
TLDR
The new algorithm resulting from PTH and corrected calcium monitoring at 1 and 6 hours post-thyroidectomy has led to significant cost savings for the institution and has also translated into greater patient satisfaction as a result of fewer blood tests, a lower incidence of transient hypocalcemia, and significantly shorter hospital stays.

Evaluating the timing of injection laryngoplasty for vocal fold paralysis in an attempt to avoid future type 1 thyroplasty
TLDR
This 10-year longitudinal assessment revealed that early medialization of a permanent paralyzed, abducted vocal fold with a temporary material appears to diminish the likelihood of requiring permanent laryngeal framework surgery. Expand
KTP 532 nm laser for laryngeal lesions. a systematic review.
TLDR
There is only level 4 evidence of KTP's efficacy and safety, and several surgeons have found KTP laser to be the equivalent of, or superior to, the CO2 or pulsed dye lasers, and none have reported inferiority. Expand
Fine-needle aspiration biopsies in the management of indeterminate follicular and Hurthle cell thyroid lesions
TLDR
FNAB is an accurate and helpful method for the evaluation of thyroid nodules with results directly correlating with management, and surgery should be considered for FNABs categorized as indeterminate, especially in the presence of cytologic atypia. Expand
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the larynx-a case report.
TLDR
A 37-year-old man with a 1-year history of hoarseness, dysphagia, and fatigue presented with a right vocal fold submucosal mass and was treated conservatively, and MRI of the neck revealed a mildly spontaneously hyperintense right true vocal fold on GRE images and relative hyperintensity on fat-saturation T2-weighted images. Expand
Multifocal anaplastic large T cell lymphoma of the ethmoid sinuses, temporalis muscle and frontal lobe in a 17-year-old boy
TLDR
This case of a 17-year-old boy who was diagnosed with ALK-negative anaplastic large T cell lymphoma of the sinonasal tract is a unique case because of the involvement of three separate sites. Expand
Preoperative Parathyroid Hormone Levels as a Predictor of Postthyroidectomy Hypocalcemia
TLDR
A decline in the preoperative PTH level of 70% or greater at 1 hour following total thyroidectomy appears to be a reliable predictor of patients at risk of developing hypocalcemia, and calcium supplementation can be initiated sooner. Expand
Long-Term Outcome Analysis of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery for Chronic Sinusitis
TLDR
Data analysis indicates that ESS improves symptom scoring early on, but the effects begin to dissipate over time, and individuals must be warned that E SS may not be a long-term solution for CS because of its chronic nature. Expand
