Elastography as a potential modality for screening cervical lymph nodes in patients with papillary thyroid cancer: A review of literature

January 14, 2018  |  Robert Saadi, MD; Salvatore LaRusso, MEd; Kanupriya Vijay, MD; David Goldenberg, MD

Abstract

Papillary thyroid cancer often presents with cervical lymph node involvement and has a high incidence of recurrence, which requires routine follow-up with ultrasound imaging. Elastography is a novel ultrasound technique that has been demonstrated to be effective clinically in...

December 12, 2017  |  Dana Goldenberg; Monika Joshi, MD; Jozef Malysz, MD; David Claxton, MD; Elizabeth E. Cottrill, MD

Patients who have undergone allogeneic stem cell transplants are more likely to suffer from isolated myeloid sarcoma at relapse.

Preoperative diagnosis of intrathyroidal parathyroid adenomas is essential to determining correct surgical management

Multinodular goiter: A study of malignancy risk in nondominant nodules

August 24, 2017  |  Jenica Su-ern Yong, MBBS, MRCS, MMED ORL; Kwok Seng Loh, MBBS, FRCS, FAMS; Bengt Fredrik Petersson, MD, PhD; Mark Thong, MBBS, MRCS, MMED ORL

Abstract

The long-standing belief that multinodular goiters are associated with a lower risk of developing into carcinoma has been challenged by the results of some recent studies. In addition, we have noticed in our practice that a sizable proportion of cancers have been arising from...

Aggressive differentiated thyroid cancer in the geriatric patient

June 20, 2017  |  Kourosh Parham, MD, PhD, FACS; Karen M. Kost, MD, FRCSC

Although differentiated thyroid cancer is typically considered a relatively indolent disease, this is not the case in older adults.

Quality-of-life outcomes in Graves disease patients after total thyroidectomy

April 30, 2017  |  Lukas H. Kus, MD; Wilma M. Hopman, MA; Ian J. Witterick, MD; Jeremy L. Freeman, MD

Abstract

Historically, research into surgical treatment of Graves disease has assessed subtotal rather than total thyroidectomy. Most clinicians now recommend total thyroidectomy, but little information is available regarding quality-of-life (QOL) outcomes for this procedure. Our aim...

Thyroglossal duct cyst

February 20, 2017  |  Lester D. Thompson, MD

Most patients present with a mobile, painless midline neck mass, usually inferior to the hyoid bone, showing movement with tongue protrusion.

Atypical parathyroid adenoma with diffuse fibrosis

February 20, 2017  |  Christine M. Clark, BA; Sakeena J. Payne, MD; Joshua I. Warrick, MD; David Goldenberg, MD, FACS

Atypical parathyroid adenomas are infrequently encountered and can present a diagnostic challenge, as they share overlapping clinical and histologic features with parathyroid carcinoma.

End-of-life decision making in geriatric terminal head and neck cancer

December 7, 2016  |  Kourosh Parham, MD, PhD, FACS; Karen M. Kost, MD, FRCSC

In the oncogeriatric setting, the comprehensive geriatric assessment has been recognized as providing useful information supplementary to what can be obtained via standard oncology status assessments.

Risk of thyroid malignancy following an index head and neck squamous cell carcinoma: A population-based study

December 7, 2016  |  Jason Y. Chan, MBBS; Zhen Gooi, MBBS; Wojciech K. Mydlarz, MD; Nishant Agrawal, MD

Abstract

To evaluate the incidence of a subsequent primary thyroid malignancy in patients with an index head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), we analyzed the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database to identify a cohort of patients who...

October 25, 2016  |  Michael Goldenberg, MA; Joshua Warrick, MD; Mariano Russo, BS; Darrin V. Bann, MD, PhD

It is important to distinguish between metastatic disease and a second primary thyroid malignancy, which is more common than thyroid gland metastasis.
