BACKGROUND Voice and throat dysfunction may occur in patients after thyroidectomy, even in the absence of apparent laryngeal nerve injury. We evaluated the impact of thyroid surgery on voice and throat function using perceptive, objective, and subjective measurements in a prospectively enrolled and serially followed cohort of thyroid cancer patients. We(More)
BACKGROUND Lateral lymph node metastasis is an important prognostic factor and is predictive of tumor recurrence and cause-specific survival in patients with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). However, the factors predicting recurrence and clinical outcomes after therapeutic lateral neck dissection are not well established. The aims of this study were to(More)
AIMS To assess the efficacy of the step section for determination of pathological complete response (pCR) in rectal cancer treated with preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS AND RESULTS Of 709 patients with rectal cancer who received preoperative CRT, 88 were initially diagnosed as having pCR. These 88 patients were re-evaluated after two-level(More)
Patients with Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT) who are resistant even to salvage chemotherapy, have dismal prognoses and few therapeutic options. Because the docetaxel/irinotecan (DI) combination has not been previously evaluated in ESFT, we prospectively evaluated its use in patients with recurrent or refractory ESFT. Patients aged <30 years with(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of radioactive iodine therapy (RIT) on vocal function during the early follow-up period after total thyroidectomy (TT) using perceptive and objective measurements, questionnaires regarding subjective symptoms, and data on vocal function in a prospectively enrolled and serially followed thyroid(More)
We undertook this study to estimate an accurate incidence and spread patterns of occult papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) in patients with a preoperative diagnosis of solitary PTC by using whole-specimen mapping of all specimens after a total thyroidectomy. Enrolled prospectively in this whole-thyroid mapping study are 82 consecutive patients who underwent(More)
