Outpatient Thyroidectomy: Is it Safe?

, : Outpatient Thyroidectomy: Is it Safe?. Surgical Oncology Clinics of North America 25(1): 61-75

Outpatient thyroid surgery is controversial because of concerns over life-threatening cervical hematoma. Despite this concern, outpatient thyroidectomy is becoming increasingly common, especially among high-volume endocrine surgeons. Multiple studies have now demonstrated that careful patient selection combined with surgeon experience can result in successful and safe surgery without a full inpatient admission. This article reviews the data on safety and outcomes for outpatient thyroidectomy and discusses several techniques used to minimize risk to patients.

The extraction of membrane tubes by molecular motors is known to play an important role for the transport properties of eukaryotic cells. By studying a generic class of models for the tube extraction, we discover a rich phase diagram. In particula...

An accumulation of iron occurs in the hippocampus of rats injected with kainate over time, but thus far whether this accumulation is associated with any changes in expression of iron transporters is not known. The present study was therefore carri...
