Abstract Purpose Disruption of calcium homeostasis is the most common complication after total thyroidectomy in adults. We explored the incidence and risk factors of hypocalcaemia and hypoparathyroidism after total thyroidectomy in children(≤ 18 years of age). Methods One-hundred-and-six children underwent a total thyroidectomy. Patient, operative and outcome data were collected and analyzed. Results The indication for surgery was Graves' disease in 52 children(49.1%), Multiple Endocrine Neoplas...

BACKGROUND: The success of minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) relies on accurate localization of the abnormal parathyroid glands. Concordant findings on ultrasound (US) and 99mTc-scintigraphy (sestamibi) are currently considered the 'gold standard'. Computed tomography (CT) has also recently been used in preoperative planning. We sought to assess the accuracy of CT for localization of abnormal parathyroid glands in such patients. METHODS: An audit of 75 patients with primary hyperparathy...

Abstract The adrenal cortex governs fundamental metabolic processes though synthesis of glucocorticoid, mineralocorticoids and androgens. Studies in rodents have demonstrated that the cortex undergoes a self-renewal process and that capsular/subcapsular stem/progenitor cell pools differentiate towards functional steroidogenic cells supporting the dynamic centripetal streaming of adrenocortical cells throughout life. We previously demonstrated that the Notch atypical ligand Delta-like homologue 1...

Abstract Backgroud This study compares the outcome of parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in patients whose adenomas’ weights were at the extremes of the distribution curve. As the size of parathyroid adenomas influences the success rate of localization studies for PHPT, it is possible that a difference in cure rate could be observed between subgroups of patients. Materials and methods Data were retrieved from a prospective database maintained in a large university hospital....

New technologies look for practical applications and complex clinical problems search for innovations able to address them. This convergent course of clinical needs and technological innovation laid foundation for progress and success of modern health care. Our review looks at the present status and future concepts of parathyroid surgery in relation to important technological developments of the last few decades. We focus on describing how parathyroid operations have been transformed by the more...
