Introduction. In thyroid cancer (TC) operations most frequently damaged vital structures are recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN), spinal accessory nerve (SAN).Material and methods.27253patients were operated on Thyroid (1973-2012). Unilateral RLN injury took place in0.78%, bilateral– in0.28%. In 2390 TC patients RLN injury were observed in 0.31% (in general group) despite or to thank for it dissection. This […]

Background: Surgical resection is the only curative method for multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2)-related medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). Our aim is to compare the therapeutic efficacy of prophylactic thyroidectomy compared to the curative thyroidectomy, to evaluate the long-term outcome of subjects undergoing prophylactic surgical treatment and the onset of post-operative complications. Furtherly to […]

Background: The endoscopic thyroidectomy has been utilized via both transoral approach (TOETVA) and unilateral axillo-breast approach (UABA) to perform thyroidectomy. However, there have been no studies evaluating outcomes between these approaches. Here we describe our outcomes for thyroid lobectomy with TOETVA and UABA.   Methods: All cases of endoscopic approach thyroid lobectomy at Vietnam National […]

Background Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine malignant disease in children and adolescents. There is a trend of more conservative strategies including lobectomy and less radioactive iodine therapy(RAI) in multifocal PTC for its good survival outcome. The aim of our study was to define long-time outcome of a large cohort of multifocal PTC patients […]

Aim to prospectively evaluate the safety and efficacy of thermal ablation for treating low-risk unifocal Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma (PTMC). The patients with unifocal PTMC nodule were enrolled in this study. Thermal ablation for PTMC was performed and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) was used to estimate the extent of ablation immediately after thermal ablation. Complications were recorded. […]

PURPOSE?In this study, we exploited multiple deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) models in differential diagnoses of thyroid nodule histopathological images.METHODS: Our method covers 7 common types of thyroid diseases (i.e., normal tissue, adenoma, nodular goiter, papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC), medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC)). We developed 2 […]
