BACKGROUND: This study evaluates the outcomes of a protocol to manage hypocalcemia after thyroidectomy (TTX). METHODS: A review of prospectively collected data was performed in 130 patients who underwent TTX after the introduction of a specific protocol. These patients were compared with a control group of 195 patients who underwent TTX the year prior when routine calcium supplementation was utilized and no specific protocol was used. RESULTS: Of the 120 patients in whom the protocol was followed, 44 (37%) patients were classified as high risk, 15 (13%) intermediate risk, and 61 (51%) low risk...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate if patients with thyroid carcinoma having N1a disease are at the same risk with N1b using the collective of the well-defined European prospective Multicentre Study Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (MSDS). METHODS: Overall (OS) and event free survival (EFS) were calculated. Cox multivariable regression analysis was performed in order to calculate Hazard ratios (HR). RESULTS: EFS was significantly decreased only in patients with N1b metastasis as compared to N0 patients and became worse when N1a was concomitantly affected...
