OBJECTIVE: Current guidelines recommend total thyroidectomy for nearly all children with well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC). These guidelines, however, derive from older data accrued prior to current high-resolution imaging. We speculate that there is a sub-population of children who may be adequately treated with lobectomy. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of prospectively maintained database. PATIENTS: 73 children with WDTC treated between 2004 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: After myocardial infarction (MI) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and an ADP receptor inhibitor (ADPri) for at least 1year. However, whether real-world Canadian practice patterns reflect this recommendation is unknown. METHODS: We studied 2175 MI patients treated with PCI and discharged from 26 Canadian hospitals between 12/2011 and 05/2013 in the Canadian Observational Antiplatelet sTudy (COAPT)...

BACKGROUND: Pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of recurrence /progression of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). However, it is unclear if the impact of pregnancy would differ based on pre-pregnancy response to therapy status. Our objective was to investigate the risk of recurrence /progression of DTC applying the response to therapy assessments to pre-pregnancy status as recommended by the 2015 ATA thyroid cancer guidelines. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of 235 women followed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for DTC and who had a term pregnancy after initial treatment for DTC between 1997 and 2015...

PURPOSE: To assess the accuracy and reproducibility of ultrasonography classification systems in characterizing cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 49 nodules that had been surgically resected owing to features classified as indeterminate according to 2010 Italian Consensus on Thyroid Cytology criteria. Three experienced sonographers independently reviewed original sonographic images of each nodule and classified it using the 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines and the Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TI-RADS) classification proposed by Korean radiologists; later, images were reviewed jointly to obtain consensus classifications of each nodule...

BACKGROUND: The American Thyroid Association (ATA) management guidelines for thyroid cancer were revised in 2009. The aim of this study was to determine if management of thyroid cancer in our institution has changed in accordance with the introduction of the revised ATA guidelines (ATA(2009) ), and to compare the characteristics and management of thyroid cancer in a Melbourne endocrine surgery unit over a 7-year period. METHODS: All patients treated by the Monash University Endocrine Surgery Unit for thyroid cancer between 2007 and 2013 were divided into two groups - the pre-ATA(2009) group (2007-2010) and the post-ATA(2009) group (2011-2013)...

Background To balance the risk of disease progression, morbidity and efficacy of reoperative central neck dissection (RCND) in papillary thyroid carcinoma, the latest clinical guidelines recommend early surgery over surveillance when the largest diseased node is >8 mm in its smallest dimension. However, the evidence remains scarce. To determine an appropriate size for first-time RCND, we examined the relationship between size of largest diseased central node, morbidity and response-to-therapy following RCND...

BACKGROUND: The 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) management guidelines for adult patients with differentiated thyroid cancer propose the use of the modified initial risk stratification and response to therapy re-stratification systems. This study was conducted to validate the practicality of the revised guidelines for predicting tumor recurrence in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer. METHODS: Patients with papillary thyroid cancer (n = 2425) who underwent total thyroidectomy with central neck node dissection with or without modified radical neck node dissection at a single institution between October 1985 and July 2009 were retrospectively enrolled...

This American Head and Neck Society (AHNS) consensus statement focuses on the detection and management of recurrent thyroid cancer. This document describes the radiologic approach to defining structural recurrent disease and the operative and nonoperative rationale in addressing identified structural disease to create equipoise in the personalized treatment strategy for the patient. The recommendations of this AHNS multidisciplinary consensus panel of the American Head and Neck Society are intended to help guide all multidisciplinary clinicians who diagnose or manage adult patients with thyroid cancer...

Increased detection of thyroid nodules using high-resolution ultrasonography has resulted in a world-wide increase in the incidence of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Despite the steep increase in its incidence, the age-standardized mortality rate of thyroid cancer has remained stable, which leads toward a trend of more conservative treatment. The latest American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines for thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer revised in 2015 suggested that fine needle aspiration biopsy should be performed for thyroid nodules larger than 1 cm and lobectomy might be sufficient for 1 to 4 cm intrathyroidal DTC...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the variability of stimulated serum thyroglobulin (Tg) levels in post-thyroidectomy patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC) and determine the frequency of undetectable Tg in patients with evidence of functional thyroid tissue after a 131-I whole-body scan (WBS). METHODS: A retrospective record review of patients with WDTC referred to our clinic from 1990 to 2010. Demographic data, histology, staging, imaging studies, stimulated Tg values, and the presence if applicable of Tg antibodies (TgAb) were documented...

PURPOSE: Typically formulated by investigators from "world centres of excellence," differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) management guidelines may have more limited applicability in settings of less expert care and fewer resources. Arguably the world's leading DTC guidelines are those of the American Thyroid Association, revised in 2009 ("ATA 2009") and 2015 ("ATA 2015"). To further explore the issue of "real-world applicability" of DTC guidelines, we retrospectively compared indications for ablation using ATA 2015 versus ATA 2009 in a two-centre cohort of ablated T1-2, M0 DTC patients (N = 336)...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of pediatric differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) has been rising in recent years, and the main risk factors for recurrence are lymph node and distant metastasis at diagnosis. Other clinical features remain unclear, such as the impact of age, sex, and puberty. Furthermore, until now, this population has been treated using the same strategies used to treat adults. In 2015, the American Thyroid Association (ATA) published the first guidelines targeted at this age group...

Anterior transdiscal axial screw (ATAS) fixation is an alternative or supplement to the plate and screw constructs for the upper cervical spine injury. However, no existing literatures clarified the anatomic feasibility of this technique for subaxial cervical spine. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the anatomical feasibility and to establish guidelines for the use of the ATAS fixation for the subaxial cervical spine injury.Fifty normal cervical spines had radiographs to determine the proposed screw trajectory (the screw length and insertion angle) and the interbody graft-related parameters (the disc height and depth, and the distance between anterior vertebral margin and the screw) for all levels of the subaxial cervical spine...

BACKGROUND: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) represents the third most common type of thyroid cancer, and the prognosis depends on the stage of the disease at diagnosis and completeness of tumor resection. In 2009, the American Thyroid Association (ATA) published guidelines with evidence-based recommendations for the treatment of MTC. This study aimed to determine national adherence rates of the treatment according to the ATA guidelines specific for MTC. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with MTC from 2004 to 2013 were identified from the National Cancer Database...

During the past few decades, the incidence of thyroid cancer has increased substantially in many countries, including the USA. The rise in incidence seems to be attributable both to the growing use of diagnostic imaging and fine-needle aspiration biopsy, which has led to enhanced detection and diagnosis of subclinical thyroid cancers, and environmental factors. The latest American Thyroid Association (ATA) practice guidelines for the management of adult patients with thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer differ substantially from the previous ATA guidelines published in 2009...

BACKGROUND: The 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) thyroid nodule guidelines recommend selecting nodules for biopsy based on a sonographic pattern classification. These patterns were developed based on features of differentiated thyroid cancer. This study aimed to evaluate the performance and the inter-observer agreement of this classification system in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). METHODS: The medical records of all patients with MTC evaluated at the authors' institution between 1998 and 2014 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The 7th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging system trialed a subdivision of T1 tumors into T1a (<1 cm) and T1b (1.0-2 cm). The 2009 American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines recommended total thyroidectomy for tumors >1 cm, and lobectomy for those ≤1 cm. These AJCC staging parameters remain a focus of debate, and ATA guidelines are in transition. The aim of this study was to determine if the T1 staging subdivision is associated with different treatment strategies and patterns of patient survival...
