INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) can be found in concomitance with thyroid disease (TD) in a high frequency of cases. In this context the diagnostic exams for localizing the enlarged parathyroid(s) gland(s) could be less reliable or nonconclusive. Moreover, the thyroid carcinoma seems to be more frequent compared to that isolated thyroid desease and, therefore, carefully investigated. The main goal of the present study is to evaluate which diagnostic tool (US, MIBI) is more reliable for localizing the site of the PTH hypersecretion and to confirm if it is always advantageous a combination of both exams...

Incidence of unexpected diagnosis of thyroid carcinoma among operations on benign thyroid surgical diseases (nodular goiter and Graves' disease) was studied in 608 patients within 2008-2009 years in specialized clinic of endocrine surgery. In 56 (9.2%) patients the "incidental" thyroid carcinoma including 43 (77%) - papillary microcarcinoma were diagnosed in histological investigations. In 10 (18%) patients which were performed within the first postoperative week. Repeated surgery demonstrates increased risk of complication (damage of parathyroid glands, recurrent laryngeal nerves and other anatomic structures of neck) considering less favoring conditions for secondary operations, it is worth to implement wider indications to frozen section, radical primary operation (total thyroidectomy at multi-nodular bilateral goiter and Graves' disease), and also maximal complete examination prior to surgery...

Activity of 144 parafascicular CM-Pf thalamic neurons was studied and recorded by means of microelectrodes during 18 stereotactical neurosurgical operations in spasmodic torticollis patients. High reactivity of two previously classified neurons with single sporadic activity (A-type) and bursts of Ca2(+)-dependent activity (B-type) were found during verbally ordered voluntary movements. There are coordinated reciprocal activation-inhibition A-type and B-type neuronal responses at the stage of verbal command presentation and synergic activation responses on the high of movement and in the aftereffect...

OMD was examined in 50 patients with chronic pancreatitis. The disturbances of OMD was revealed in 46% of the patients with chronic pancreatitis. Influence of chronic pancreatitis to the reduce of OMD was proved, especially in the patients with prolonged desease, analysis of the osteoporosis and osteopenia localization was performed in the patients with chronic pancreatitis.

Despite the numerous advances in technology and techniques for total hip arthroplasty, this surgery is often not the procedure of choice for all patients or for all hip conditions. Originally described as a treatment for femoral neck nonunions, the intertrochanteric femoral osteotomy retains an enduring role in the treatment of various posttraumatic and developmental hip conditions including femoral neck nonunions, iatrogenic or postsurgical deformities, leg-length inequality, osteonecrosis, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, deformities occurring after Legg-Calvé-Perthes desease, and for certain patients with dysplasia and secondary arthritis...

From 1986 to 1992, 55 cases of PPWC were treated with a conservative intent at the Regional Cancer Center (Rennes, France) and Saint-Yves Center (Vannes, France): 16 oropharyngeal posterior wall carcinoma (OP) and 39 hypopharyngeal posterior wall (HP); the mean age of the population was 60.3 years (31-81 years). A previous and simultaneous head and neck cancer was noted in 15 and 13% of cases respectively. Half of the cases (55%) were T1 T2 tumors and 82% were N0 N1. Except for three patients treated by curietherapy (5%), all patients were treated by radiotherapy (RT) alone (75%) or associated with curietherapy (7%) or partial pharyngectomy (13%)...

Unstable subcapital fractures and dislocation fractures of the humerus can usually be set by closed reduction. Stabilization of these fractures by intramedullary pins is a method which avoids damage to the soft tissues around the shoulder. Since 1985, elastic steel pins with special features have been in use. The last 20 mm of the tip of the pins is angulated at 15 degrees, and the distal end is curved in a special way for the last 20 mm. According to our experience, the results after using this method in the treatment of unstable fractures of the surgical neck (ASIF type A II/2) and dislocation fractures (ASIF type A III/2) are fair to very good...
