Despite several reports on the association between molecular profiling, aggressive histology, and clinical outcomes, the association between mutation expression and pre-operative cytology is yet to be demonstrated. Therefore, we performed a retrospective, single-center study, including all patients who underwent molecular profiling of thyroid nodules in Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (BSRTC) categories III to VI, between 2018 and 2019. Medical records were reviewed to collec...

BACKGROUND Puncture and lavage of the paranasal sinuses, previously the primary treatment for unresponsive acute bacterial rhinosinusitis before surgery, has been abandoned due to procedural discomfort and advancements in antibiotic efficacy and endoscopic surgery. The rise in antibiotic-resistant bacteria has renewed the interest in minimally invasive sinus lavage to both avoid aggressive surgical interventions and identify appropriate antibiotic therapy. In this article, we describe the safety...

Abstract Introduction The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology was developed in 2007 to facilitate an accurate, reproducible communication of thyroid fine-needle aspiration (FNA) interpretations between clinicians and cytopathologists and to serve as a guide for treatment. Based on large patient series, the system details the risk of malignancy for each category as well as a suggested management for each FNA result. Though this system has been widely adopted, there are only few st...

OBJECTIVE The 2017 revised Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (BSRTC) included new malignancy rates for each category as well as new management recommendations. Here, we evaluate the malignancy rate and test performance for BSRTC categories in a middle-sized institution outside the United States (US). DESIGN Retrospective single centre case series with chart review. PATIENTS All patients who underwent thyroid surgery with a preoperative BSRTC between the years 2010 and 2018 at o...
