Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy in pediatric patients

Claudio Spinelli, Gianluca Donatini, Piero Berti, Gabriele Materazzi, Sara Costanzo, Paolo Miccoli
2008 Journal of Pediatric Surgery  
Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) proved to be safe and effective in the treatment of both benign diseases and malignancies. We report our experience in thyroid surgery in pediatric patients. Methods: From October 1998 to December 2005, 35 patients (27 females and 8 males) underwent MIVAT for thyroid disease. The mean age was 14.0 years (range, 8-18 years); mean ecographically estimated thyroid volume was 11.13 mL (range, 8-25 mL). Results: A total thyroidectomy was

One patient underwent also a prophylactic central neck dissection for positive RET oncogene. The histologic examination found a papillary carcinoma in 11 patients, a microfollicular nodule in 7 patients, and multinodular goiter in 17 patients. The mean operative time was 54.1 minutes for thyroidectomy (range, 25-110 minutes) and 38.5 minutes for lobectomy (range, 20-65 minutes). All patients but one was discharged on the first postoperative day. One transient hypoparathyroidism was observed in the patient who underwent total thyroidectomy plus central neck lymphadenectomy. Conclusions: The MIVAT technique proved to be as safe and effective as conventional thyroidectomy with Kocher approach to treat patients with both benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid gland. The advantages of MIVAT are represented by a better and faster postoperative course and an improved aesthetic result, which is particularly important in this group of patients.

We measured the chemical composition and the size distribution of aerosols generated by femtosecond-Terawatt laser pulses in the atmosphere using an aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS). We show that nitric acid condenses in the form of ammonium nitrate, and that oxidized volatile organics also contribute to particle growth. These two components account for two thirds and one third, respectively, of the dry laser-condensed mass. They appear in two different modes centred at 380 nm and 150 nm. The

Milena Rizzo, Gabriele Berti, Francesco Russo, Sofia Fazio, Monica Evangelista, Romina D'Aurizio, Marco Pellegrini, Giuseppe Rainaldi
2017 Journal of Cancer  
Purpose. miR-26a-5p is a tumor suppressor (TS) miRNA often downregulated in several tumor tissues and tumor cell lines. In this work, we performed the re-expression of the miR-26a-5p in DU-145 prostate cancer cells to collect genes interacting with miR-26a-5p and analyzed their integration in the tumorigenesis related pathways. Methods. The transfection of DU-145 prostate cancer cells with miR-26a-5p was done using nucleofection. The biological effects induced by miR-26a-5p re-expression were

The miRNA pull out technique was used to collect and next generation sequencing to identify the complete repertoire of the miR-26a-5p targets (miR-26a-5p/targetome). TargetScan 7, PITA and RNA22 were used to find the predicted miR-26a-5p targets in the miR-26a-5p/targetome. Gene set enrichment analysis were used to integrate target genes in KEGG pathways and Protein-Protein Interaction networks (PPINs) and modules were built. Results. miR-26a-5p exerted an anti-proliferative effect acting at several levels, by decreasing survival and migration and inducing both cell cycle block and apoptosis. The analysis of the miR-26a-5p/targetome showed that 1423 (1352 coding and 71 non-coding) transcripts interacted with miR-26a-5p. Filtering the miR-26a-5p/targetome with prediction algorithms, 628 out of 1353 transcripts were miR-26a-5p predicted targets and 73 of them were already validated miR-26a-5p targets. Finally, miR-26a-5p targets were involved in 22 KEGG pathways and 20 significant protein-protein interaction modules Conclusion. The TS-miR-26a-5p/targetome is a platform that shows both unknown and known miRNA/target interactions thus offering the possibility to validate genes and discover pathways in which these genes could be involved. Key words: re-expression of miR-26a-5p; DU-145 prostate cancer cells, miRNA pull out assay; next generation sequencing; miR-26a-5p/targetome; pathway in cancer.

New Technologies in Surgery: Diagnosis and Treatment of Complications of Mivat (Minimally Invasive Video-Assisted Thyroidectomy)

Paolo Miccoli, Gabriele Materazzi, Piero Berti
2008 Polish Journal of Surgery  
The aim of the study was to present evolution of the technique of minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy, its advantages, limitations and possible complications related to the method. Material and methods. Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) is characterized by a unique central incision of 1.5 cm, 2 cm above the sternal notch. The operative space is maintained by means of an external retraction: no gas insufflation is utilized. Potential complications of Minimally

Since June 1998 to March 2008 1524 patients underwent a minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy. Complications were represented by transient monolateral recurrent nerve palsy in 38 cases (2.4%), definitive monolateral recurrent nerve palsy in 18 cases (1.1%), bilateral transient recurrent nerve palsy in 2 cases. Fifty five patients exhibited a hypoparathyroidism, which corresponds to 5.1% of the 1059 total thyroidectomies performed, but only 5 complained of a permanent hypocalcemia which necessitated a substitutive therapy, thus reducing the rate of permanent hypoparathyroidism to 0.4%. We registered in two cases of postoperative bleeding requiring re-operation; wound sepsis occurred in three cases. Conclusions. MIVAT unlike other minimally invasive endoscopic techniques proposed for thyroidectomy, reproduces the standard operation and does not introduce any modification of the traditional technique and in our series total complication rate resulted similar to that described in literature for standard thyroidectomy in large series. As long as these criteria are carefully respected one need not to be concerned that these techniques might increase the complication rate.

2015 Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia  
INTRODUCTION: Viral hepatitis is an important public health problem in Brazil and around the world. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate vaccination coverage against hepatitis B in adolescents and to identify the associated factors and reasons for non-adherence. METHODS: A cross-sectional population-based study with sampling by clusters and in two stages, carried out from records of 702 adolescents aged 11 to 19 years old, non-institutionalized, living in an urban area of Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, in
more » ... 2009. The data were obtained from the Health Survey in the city of Campinas (ISACamp). RESULTS: The prevalence of vaccination (3 doses) was 72.2%. An independent and negative association with the vaccine was observed for the adolescents who were not born in the municipality. The orientation of a health care provider was positively and significantly associated with vaccination. The main reasons for non-adherence were the lack of orientation and not considering the vaccine necessary. Socioeconomic factors, health behaviors and conditions did not restrict the access to vaccination, but the coverage was below the target established by the Ministry of Health in Brazil. CONCLUSION: Health education programs, addressing the importance of vaccination to prevent the disease; strategies to actively reach out adolescents that did not complete the schedule; as well as orientation from the health care professional about the benefits of the vaccine to the adolescents, parents and guardians can extend the vaccination coverage.

Constraining high-redshift stellar-mass primordial black holes with next-generation ground-based gravitational-wave detectors [article]

Ken K. Y. Ng, Gabriele Franciolini, Emanuele Berti, Paolo Pani, Antonio Riotto, Salvatore Vitale
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The possible existence of primordial black holes in the stellar mass window has received considerable attention because their mergers may contribute to current and future gravitational-wave detections. Primordial black hole mergers, together with mergers of black holes originating from Population III stars, are expected to dominate at high redshifts (z≳ 10). However the primordial black hole merger rate density is expected to rise monotonically with redshift, while Population III mergers can

Next-generation gravitational-wave detectors such as Cosmic Explorer (CE) and Einstein Telescope (ET) can access this distinctive feature in the merger rates as functions of redshift, allowing for a direct measurement of the abundance of the two populations, and hence for robust constraints on the abundance of primordial black holes. We simulate four-months worth of data observed by a CE-ET detector network and perform hierarchical Bayesian analysis to recover the merger rate densities. We find that if the Universe has no primordial black holes with masses of 𝒪(10M_⊙), the projected upper limit on their abundance f_ PBH as a fraction of dark matter energy density may be as low as f_ PBH∼𝒪(10^-5), about two orders of magnitude lower than current upper limits in this mass range. If instead f_ PBH≳ 10^-4, future gravitational wave observations would exclude f_ PBH=0 at the 95% credible interval.

Pre-existing water droplets strongly increase the oxidative properties of the laser-activated atmosphere, substantially enhancing the condensation of organics under laser illumination. Self guided filamentation 1-5 of high-power femtosecond laser pulses results from a dynamic balance between the Kerr effect which tends to self-focus the laser beam on one side, and the plasma created by the strong electric field, as well as higher-order polarisation saturation effects 6,7 on the other. The resulting filaments can propagate beyond 100 m in the atmosphere 8 , be created remotely 9 , and withstand adverse atmospheric conditions like clouds 10 or turbulence 11,12 . This non-linear propagation regime is of particular interest for atmospheric applications 13 such as remote sensing 14 , air lasing 15,16 , triggering of high voltage discharges [17] [18] [19] and lightning control 20 . The most striking effect of laser filaments in the atmosphere is laser-induced condensation 21-26 , where the plasma photochemistry induced by laser filaments leads to nucleation of new particles 27 and their subsequent growth 22,28 . Both laboratory and field studies have shown that laser-induced condensation is associated with the production of locally high ozone and NO x concentrations in the gas phase. Furthermore, ion chromatography of laser-produced particles sampled on filters has shown substantial amounts of − NO 3 ions in the laser-condensed particles 22, 29 . The formation of highly hygroscopic HNO 3 has therefore been identified as one major pathway to support laser-induced condensation of aerosol mass, for relative humidity (RH) in atmosphere higher than 70% 22 . Moreover, ppb-range traces of atmospheric SO 2 have also been shown to favour laser-induced nucleation of new particles, increasing the number concentration by typically one order of magnitude but without significant total aerosol mass increase. Conversely, laboratory experiments in a cloud chamber showed that ppb-range concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) lead to an increase in the concentration of laser-induced particles for sizes up to some hundreds nanometers, together with an increase of the condensed mass 27 . This suggests that they both contribute at least to the initial phases of the nucleation but that mostly organic compounds condense on bigger particles. However, very little was known to date about the actual composition of the laser-induced aerosol mass, which is needed to identify the physico-chemical pathways.
