PURPOSE Surgical complications such as hypoparathyroidism (HPT) or vocal cord palsy are seldom assessed when the quality of life (QOL) in thyroid cancer patients is investigated. The aim of this study was to measure the QOL difference in thyroid cancer survivors with and without HPT. METHODS Participants for this analysis were enrolled in 13 countries from a study that pilot-tested a thyroid cancer-specific QOL instrument. They were included if they had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer at leas...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate whether an association between retinal vessel diameters with blood pressure and other risk factors exists in a healthy working population and whether current risk factors can be used as predictors for retinal vessel changes over time. METHODS: Retinal photographs and medical data were obtained during a voluntary work health check in 2010 and 2013. The central retinal arterial equivalent (CRAE) and central retinal venular equivalent (CRVE) were as...

PURPOSE: Patients with thyroid cancer are often assumed to have no quality of life (QOL) impairments after treatment because of thyroid cancer's good prognosis. However, the QOL implications of surgical complications and the necessity to take lifelong medication are seldom assessed. METHODS: Patients who had surgery due to thyroid cancer at the University Medical Center Mainz between 2010 and 2015 and who had calcium or parathyroid hormone levels below the reference values immediately following ...

Purpose The number of total hip (THA) and knee arthroplasties (TKA) grows constantly which causes enormously rising costs for healthcare systems. The aim of this systematic literature review was to evaluate whether a cost reduction can be achieved by THA or TKA fast-track protocols, which is a multidisciplinary approach aiming at faster recovery.

Hypoparathyreoidismus (HPT) ist eine der haufigsten Komplikationen einer Schilddrusenkrebsoperation. Die Lebensqualitat von Patienten mit HPT ist im Vergleich zu Normpopulationen oder gematchten Kontrollindividuen stark eingeschrankt. Eine reduzierte Lebensqualitat zeigt sich gleichermasen in physischen und psychischen Bereichen. Wenige Studien haben bisher die Lebensqualitat von Schilddrusenkrebsuberlebenden mit postoperativem HPT erhoben. Einschrankungen der Lebensqualitat von Patienten mit po...

Purpose Cancer patients in Germany often face payments related to their disease or treatment which are not covered by their health insurance. The aim of this study was to analyze the amount of out-of-pocket payments (OOPPs) among cancer patients in Germany, to explore potential socioeconomic determinants of OOPPs, and to identify how cancer patients are burdened by these payments.

Purpose Hypoparathyroidism is a rare endocrine disorder for which replacement therapy of the missing parathyroid hormone is not the standard therapeutic option. Current standard treatment consists of calcium and vitamin D supplementation. The intake of calcium and vitamin D supplementation can lead to complications and therefore might negatively influence patients’ quality of life.
