  1. Role of Ultrasound Elastography in Patient Selection for Prostatic Artery Embolization


    Purpose: To determine the effects of prostatic artery embolization (PAE) on prostate elasticity as assessed using ultrasound elastography (US-E) and to describe baseline US-E's potential role in patient selection. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective investigation that included 20 patien...

  2. Identification of secondary predictive factors for acute hypocalcemia following thyroidectomy in patients with low postoperative parathyroid hormone levels without overt calcium deficiency: A cohort study

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF OTOLARYNGOLOGY, v.42, n.6, article ID 103115, 4p, 2021

    Background: The transient acute hypocalcemia (HypoCa) is the most prevalent complication after total thyroidectomy, detected primarily by subnormal intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and calcium levels. However, the need for calcium supplementation is ambiguous in patients who exhibit low iPTH wit...
