Most of the studies on the incidence, pattern, and predictive factors of lymph node (LN) metastasis with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) have been performed retrospectively and no common consensus has been reached regarding the predictors for the involvement of level I LNs. This study was conducted prospectively to determine the incidence and the possible predictors of level I involvement in N1b PTC patients. The study included 30 consecutive patients with N1b stage of PTC. All the patients underwent neck dissection (ND) including level I...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the complication rates and describe the possible complications of ultrasonography-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of benign thyroid nodules (BTN) and recurrent thyroid cancers (RTC), and to compare the complication rates between BTN and RTC. METHODS: This retrospective study reviewed 875 patients who underwent RFA for BTN (746 patients; 83.5%) or RTC (129 patients; 14.7%). Medical records were reviewed for all types of complications occurring during and after the RFA procedure...

The utility and cost effectiveness of salivary gland fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is controversial. Some authorities argue FNA has no added value over clinical-radiographic study because most salivary gland nodules occur in the parotid and the tumor's relationship to the facial nerve determines the operative procedure rather than the histology. Other experts contend FNA is of value by reducing the overall number of operative procedures performed. We studied 306 salivary gland nodules (214 parotid and 92 submandibular gland) undergoing FNA...

Human accessory lacrimal glands were examined both light and electron microscopically and their gross architecture was reconstructed from serial sections. Every accessory lacrimal gland nodule is an individual organ with its own connective tissue coat and excretory duct. Within the gland proper, the excretory duct ramifies to form intralobular ducts, which are connected to the secretory glandular epithelia. The secretory epithelia are composed of elongated tubules terminating in short end pieces with lumina of variable width...

A statistical analysis of 193 patients with thyroid carcinoma encountered at Vanderbilt University Hospital from 1925 to 1974 is reported, from which the following conclusions are drawn: (1) Papillary thyroid carcinoma is an extremely favorable lesion that when grossly limited to one thyroid lobe can usually be managed successfully by ipsolateral total lobectomy. (2) Cervical lymph node enlargement in patients with papillary carcinoma requires lymph node dissection. When feasible, the spinal accessory nerve should be preserved...
