Background Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the thyroid (ThySCC) is a rare cancer, primarily described only in case reports. We aimed to characterize the prognosis of ThySCC and compare its oncologic behavior to other thyroid malignancies.

Background The incidence of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) has increased over the past decade. The American Thyroid Association (ATA) suggests that these patients may undergo either thyroid lobectomy or active surveillance. It remains unclear whether there exists a subgroup of PTMC patients who may benefit from more aggressive treatment due to increased risk of recurrence.

Abstract Background Primary aldosteronism is a common cause of secondary hypertension. Treatment with adrenalectomy or mineralocorticoid receptor-blockers can prevent long-term adverse outcomes. This study aimed to determine primary aldosteronism screening rats in patients with hypertension in an underserved urban healthcare system. Methods We reviewed records of outpatient adults in an urban healthcare system from 2013 to 2017. Chart review along with International Statistical Classification of...

Abstract Background Safe performance of laparoscopic transabdominal adrenalectomy requires the application of a complex body of knowledge and skills, which are difficult to define, teach, and measure. This qualitative study aims to characterize expert behaviors, decisions, and other cognitive processes required to perform laparoscopic transabdominal adrenalectomy. Method Hierarchical and cognitive task analyses for right and left laparoscopic transabdominal adrenalectomy were performed using sem...

Abstract Background The majority of papillary thyroid cancers are driven by acquired mutations typically in the BRAF or RAS genes that aberrantly activate the mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway. This process leads to malignant transformation, dedifferentiation, and a decrease in the expression of the sodium-iodide symporter (NIS; SLC5A5), which results in resistance to radioactive iodine therapy. We sought to determine whether inhibition of aberrant mitogen-activated protein kinase-signali...

Objective:We aimed to clarify whether aggressive histology of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) impacts overall survival (OS).Summary Background Data:Aggressive variants of PTC (AVPTC) are associated with invasive features. However, their behavior in the absence of these features is not well characteri
