Diagnosis of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (papillary or follicular) and its treatment may be associated with a poor health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and with fear of recurrence (FoR), and distress. To our knowledge, this is the first time a single FoR screening question (written to complement a HRQoL questionnaire), has been reported with HRQoL and levels of distress in patients treated for the disease. In April 2014 we did a cross-sectional survey of patients who had presented to the Merseyside and Cheshire thyroid cancer network between April 2009 and November 2013...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Premonitory symptoms in migraine; symptoms occurring before the onset of migraine pain or aura, are an increasingly recognised area of interest within headache research. It has been recently documented in the literature that these symptoms also occur in children and adolescents, with a comparable phenotype to adults. This review discusses the wide presentation of premonitory symptoms in migraine in children and adolescents, and the importance of understanding how these early symptoms are mediated in order to ensure that targeted abortive therapies are developed in the future...

There are increased reports of prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) in surgeons performing minimal access surgeries. Due to the nature of the speciality, otolaryngologists spend their work days in performing markedly precise procedures in small workspaces i.e. the patients' ear, nose and throat. Due to this, they frequently adopt awkward neck, back and shoulder postures while using devices like otoscope, endoscope and microscope. The field of otolaryngology has barely received any attention with respect to ergonomic assessment...

INTRODUCTION: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has shown significant benefits for patients and healthcare systems. However, due to the poor ergonomic adaptation of operating rooms and surgical instruments, most surgeons suffer from pain caused by musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). METHODS: A descriptive survey on MIS surgeons working on different surgical specialties has been carried out in Hospital Valdecilla (Spain). The aim is to determine the prevalence of MSDs by using a personal interview and the standardized Nordic questionnaire (SNQ)...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to examine the prevalence, clinical significance, ramifications, and possible etiology of postoperative bone formation at the index level after Cervical Disc Replacement (CDR) with a minimum of five years of follow-up. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: CDR can be complicated by postoperative ossification and unwanted ankylosis at the index level, which some authors have termed "heterotopic ossification". This terminology may be inaccurate as it assumes the postoperative bone formation is unnatural and a consequence of the CDR surgery...
