Indications for Surgery and Significance of Unrecognized Cancer in Endemic Multinodular Goiter
TLDR
Evidence-based indications for surgery in this group of patients is needed, although radical surgery and favorable tumor histology offer favorable outcomes in commonly diagnosed thyroid cancer after total thyroidectomy for endemic multinodular goiter.
Alteration of Trace Elements in Multinodular Goiter, Thyroid Adenoma, and Thyroid Cancer.
TLDR
It was found that Cu/Zn and U/Se ratios had significantly increased values in pathological blood samples leading to the possibility of establishing new circulating screening markers, which can represent significant translational information since these diseases are widespread and the diagnostic procedure is still difficult.
Nontoxic goiter: causes, clinical evaluation and management
TLDR
The present study carried out in a government notified endemic region to evaluate the nontoxic goiter patients for pattern of presentation, histopathological causes, with its surgical management and post-operative complications.
A Prospective Cohort Study of Nodular Goiter: A Hormonal Approach
TLDR
Most of the multinodular goiters are hyperthyroidism and the base line treatment is only surgical, and the risk factors were TPO-Ab.
Non Toxic Goiter: Cytology, Histological Analysis: A Study in Mosul
TLDR
The histological findings observed in non toxic goiter of the resected thyroid tissue in Mosul city were compared with the results of Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology to assess the role of this method in the early diagnosis & correct management of both multinodular goiter & solitary thyroid nodule.
Determination of twenty chemical element contents in macro-and micro-follicular colloid goiter using neutron activation analysis and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry
TLDR
There are considerable changes in ChE contents in the goitrous transformed tissue of thyroid, which depend on the histology of goiter, and these changes depend on CNG histology.
ANTI - THYROID PEROXIDASE A NTI BODY LEVEL IN THYROI D NODUL ES: WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THYROID NEOPLASIA
TLDR
Anti - TPO antibody level was increased in Benign & toxic form of Multi nodular goiter and papillary carcinoma but there is no elevation of Anti - T PO antibody level in follicular adenoma or follicular carcinoma.
Size and Duration of Multinodular Goiter Predicts Its Toxicity
TLDR
Evaluating the status of thyroid function in large multinodular goiters of more than 20 years duration finds that thyroid function has not changed significantly over the years.

Radioiodine for nontoxic multinodular goiter.
TLDR
It is shown that 131I treatment of nontoxic nodular goiter results in a mean thyroid volume reduction of 40% after 1 year of 50-60% after 3-5 years, and an improvement of compressive symptoms can be achieved, as measured by MRI.
Management of the nontoxic multinodular goiter: a North American survey.
TLDR
In the work-up of patients with nontoxic multinodular goiter, ATA clinicians employ determinations of TSH often combined with a T4 and/or T3 assay and antithyroid peroxidase antibodies.
Management of simple nodular goiter: current status and future perspectives.
TLDR
It is of the view that levothyroxine, although widely used, should no longer be recommended routinely for this condition and the increasing use of fine-needle aspiration biopsy is supported.
Total thyroidectomy: the procedure of choice for multinodular goitre.
Reduction in goiter size by 131I therapy in patients with non-toxic multinodular goiter.
TLDR
131I treatment of non-toxic goiter is an effective treatment at the expense of post-radiation (subclinical) hypothyroidism in patients with non-Toxic multinodular goiter.
The advantage of total thyroidectomy to avoid reoperation for incidental thyroid cancer in multinodular goiter.
TLDR
Recommend total or near-total thyroidectomy in multinodular goiter to eliminate the necessity for early completion thyroidectomyIn case of a final diagnosis of thyroid cancer.
Total Thyroidectomy for Benign Thyroid Disorders in an Endemic Region
TLDR
Total thyroidectomy should be considered a treatment of choice for multinodular goiter and Graves' disease in a setting of palpable nodule(s) or ophthalmopathy (or both), particularly relevant in endemic regions where patients present with a long-standing, large nodularGoiter with virtually no normal thyroid tissue.
Total thyroidectomy for bilateral benign multinodular goiter: effect of changing practice.
TLDR
Examining the changing pattern of use of bilateral subtotal thyroidectomy and total thyroidectomy in the initial surgical treatment of nodular goiter in Australia and New Zealand concluded thattotal thyroidectomy is a safe and effective treatment for bilateral BMNG, and it is now the routine procedure throughout Australia andNew Zealand.
Prospective Study of Postoperative Complications After Total Thyroidectomy for Multinodular Goiters by Surgeons With Experience in Endocrine Surgery
TLDR
In endocrine surgery units, TT can be performed for MG with a definitive complication rate of around 1%; the main independent risk factors for the development of complications are hyperthyroidism and goiter size.
