OBJECTIVE Minimal invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) is a common surgical technique for the treatment of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and is usually done in conjunction with positive imaging techniques. We aimed to assess the results of this technique, performed without the use of intraoperative tests, in cases with PHPT caused by a single parathyroid(More)
We report herein the case of a patient who developed a malignant recurrence of pheochromocytoma 13 years after undergoing complete resection of a histologically benign, unilateral, sporadic tumor. A discussion on the importance of lifelong follow-up for patients undergoing surgery for pheochromocytoma follows this case report.
OBJECTIVE Lymphedema is a chronic major complication that is seen frequently post-operatively and has negative effects on quality of life. In our study, determining the early-stage postoperative lymphedema frequency and specifying the risk factors in its development has been aimed. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred one cases that were operated on for(More)
Predictability of pre-op prognosis on patient with a diagnosis of breast cancer is quite valuable for the choice of both surgical technique and adjuvant therapy. With the aim of evaluation of sonoelastography score utility in this respect, correlation of tumoral prognostic factors by sonoelastography score in patients be operated due to breast cancer was(More)
We present a 15-year-old female patient with medullary thyroid carcinoma, marfanoid habitus, and mucosal ganglioneuromatosis. Our case had a RET protooncogene mutation ser836 polymorphism in exon 14 and ser904 polymorphism in exon 15. Our patient is thought to be atypical MEN2B due to the absence of M918T or A883F mutations. Chilaiditi sign is an incidental(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple breast cancers may present with different clinical and biological characteristics. The data indicate that multifocal (MF), multicentric (MC), and bilateral synchronous (BS) breast cancers (BC) are more aggressive and have an equivalent or moderately poorer survival rate compared with unilateral cases. However, a comparison of these(More)
BACKGROUND Environmental habitat may play a role in clinical disparities of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) patients. AIMS To compare preoperative clinical symptoms and associated conditions and surgical findings in patients with pHPT, living in different geographical regions from the Black Sea, Mediterranean and Anatolia regions. STUDY DESIGN(More)
Although the observation of breast vascular tumors is rare, the most common tumor is hemangıoma in the benign group, and these tumors are observed incidentally in lumpectomy or mastectomy specimens during histological examinations. They are classified into capillary, cavernous, and venous hemangıomas. Cavernous hemangıoma is the most common subtype.(More)
