BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to evaluate insulin resistance (IR), glucose tolerance status and cardiovascular risk factors in first degree relatives of patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). METHODS A total of 120 family members [Mothers(PCOS) (n = 40), Fathers(PCOS) (n = 38), Sisters(PCOS) (n = 25) and Brothers(PCOS) (n = 17)] of(More)
Thyroid ultrasonography (US) and fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) are the most important tools in evaluating thyroid nodules. A total of 3,404 nodules in 2,082 cases referred to our clinic between 2005 and 2008 were analyzed retrospectively. Considering US features of nodules, risk factors predicting malignancy were: margin irregularity as the most(More)
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) has been widely accepted as the most accurate, safe, and cost-effective method for evaluation of thyroid nodules. The most challenging category in FNAB is atypia of undetermined significance (AUS) and follicular lesion of undetermined significance (FLUS). The Bethesda system (BS) recommends repeat FNAB in that category(More)
Follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) is the most common variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) after classical PTC (CPTC). In this study, we aimed to compare functional status, ultrasonographical features, cytological results, and histopathological characteristics of patients with CPTC and FVPTC. Preoperative thyroid functions,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the occurrence of thyroid disease in patients undergoing parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism. METHODS In this case series, records of all patients with a diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism who underwent parathyroidectomy between January 2005 and December 2008 in our clinic were analyzed retrospectively.(More)
OBJECTIVE The major limitation of ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (US-FNAB) procedures of thyroid nodules are the cytologically nondiagnostic results. The role of increasing the diameter of the needle in the third FNAB (FNAB#3) due to inadequate cytology has as yet not been investigated. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether(More)
