Most of what is known about the metabolically healthy obese phenomenon is derived from studies in the adult population and no standardized criteria to identify these individuals exist to date. The aim of this study was to determine if the preserved insulin sensitivity evaluated by homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) index is(More)
An increase in the prevalence of pediatric type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been reported by numerous studies in the United States during the past two decades. Available data from Europe are scarce, but also suggest the rising prevalence of this disease in overweight children. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of previously(More)
Available data on metabolically healthy obese (MHO) phenotype in children suggest that gender, puberty, waist circumference, insulin sensitivity, and other laboratory predictors have a role in distinguishing these children from metabolically unhealthy obese (MUO) youth. The goal of this study was to identify predictors of MHO phenotype and to analyze(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Although total body irradiation (TBI) was considered to be the primary cause of thyroid dysfunction following hematopoietic stem cells transplantation (HSCT), a significant prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism after HSCT with chemotherapy-only conditioning regimens has been observed in several studies. The aim of this study was to assess(More)
INTRODUCTION Differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) is a rare childhood malignancy, as it represents 0.3-0.4% of pediatric malignancies. Papillary carcinoma is the most common type of pediatric DTC and it represents about 90% of all DTC patients. Although rare, DTC arising from dyshormonogenetic goiter is the most serious complication of congenital(More)
BACKGROUND Transfusion of allogeneic blood influences outcome after surgery. Despite widespread availability of transfusion guidelines, transfusion practices might vary among physicians, departments, hospitals and countries. Our aim was to determine the amount of packed red blood cells (pRBC) and blood products transfused intraoperatively, and to describe(More)
Unexpected rapid death after delivery due to HELLP syndrome (HS) may become the subject of a forensic expertise. Since this syndrome is rarely encountered in forensic pathology, our objective was to point to some specific findings which might present forensic aspects of HS. These include unexpectedness, suddenness and fulminant course of this syndrome,(More)
Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is the most frequent congenital endocrine disorder. The purpose of the present study was to determine the incidence of CH in Central Serbia from 1983 to 2013. Newborn screening for CH was based on measuring neonatal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) using a 30 mU/l cutoff (CO) until 12/1987 (P1), 15 mU/l until 12/1997 (P2), 10(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate siMS score and siMS risk score, novel continuous metabolic syndrome scores as methods for quantification of metabolic status and risk. MATERIALS AND METHODS Developed siMS score was calculated using formula: siMS score = 2*Waist/Height + Gly/5.6 + Tg/1.7 + TAsystolic/130-HDL/1.02 or 1.28 (for male or female subjects, respectively).(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in obese children and adolescents in Serbia. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study group consisted of 254 subjects (148 female and 106 male), aged 4.6-18.9 years with diet-induced obesity (body mass index ≥95th percentile). Presence of MS using the International Diabetes Federation definition was(More)
