Although some studies have suggested that low preoperative 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) levels may increase the risk of hypocalcemia and decrease the accuracy of single quick parathyroid hormone in predicting hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy, the literature remains scarce and inconsistent. Our study aimed to address these issues. Of the 281(More)
Although previous studies have suggested that low preoperative 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) is a risk factor for hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy, the impact of preoperative 25-OHD on calcium (Ca)/parathyroid hormone (PTH) kinetics in the immediate postoperative period remains unclear. The study compared the postoperative Ca/PTH kinetics between(More)
PURPOSE Living donor liver transplantation is a realistic life-saving treatment in regions where deceased donor organs are scarce. The minimum remnant left liver volume (RLLV) requirement for donor right hepatectomy (DRH) varies in different programs of living donor liver transplantation. The present study aimed to determine how significant the RLLV is in(More)
