Use of the TI-RADS scoring system in the evaluation of thyroid nodules

Aim: Thyroid ultrasonography-guided fine needle aspiration is known to be a cost-effective, safe diagnostic method for evaluating thyroid nodules but it is an invasive procedure. Various sonographic criteria have been proposed to estimate the risk of malignancy in thyroid nodules. TI-RADS (Thyroid Image Reporting and Data System) is one of these scoring systems. In this study, it was aimed to…

The risk factors of compensatory sweating in patients who have undergone one-stage bilateral single-port thoracoscopic sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis

Aim: Postoperative compensatory sweating is the most common recent complication ranging from 33% to 85%. Compensatory sweating is a concern and often precludes surgery as a definitive therapy. The aim of this study is to identify the risk factors for compensatory sweating on patients who have undergone one-stage bilateral single-port thoracoscopic sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis. Material and Method: From January 2011…
