Hypoparathyroidism is a frequent and serious complication of thyroid surgery. Identification and preservation of the parathyroid glands are key factors in managing hypoparathyroidism. The aim of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of rapid intraoperative parathyroid hormone (rIO-PTH) assay levels through fine needle aspiration (FNA) in(More)
During conventional intermittent intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) in thyroidectomy, recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury is detected by an electromyographic (EMG) loss of signal (LOS) after the nerve dissection. Exclusive continuous monitoring during the phase of RLN dissection may be helpful in detecting adverse EMG changes earlier. A total of 208(More)
Tyrosine kinase receptors such as c-Met and its ligands are interesting therapeutic targets that have been reported to be involved in the progression of several types of cancers. Histone deacetylase inhibitor, valproic acid (VPA) is one such compound with promising anti-cancer properties. The current study was designed to evaluate the c-Met activity of VPA(More)
