11/01/2006 - "The most central clinical difference with MEN-1 is that the associated cancer can be prevented or cured by early thyroidectomy in mutation carriers. "
03/01/2005 - "Therefore total thyroidectomy can be considered best treatment and also be surgical treatment oncologically correct for this tumor."
06/01/2010 - "If total thyroidectomy is the primary treatment for patients with differentiated thyroid cancers (DTC) and it has proven to be effective and safe, the extent of lymph nodes dissection remains controversial among experts in the field. "
01/01/2006 - "We conclude that:--good long-term results are more likely to be obtained when total thyroidectomy and radioiodine are combined with an early detection of recurrences (before they are visible by traditional imaging methods);--patients must be strictly staged in order to guide the modalities and duration of follow-up, and the Ext-TG classification seems more appropriate than all those which do not consider the Tg level at the end of initial treatment;--in experienced hands the benefits of total surgical ablation of the tumor greatly outweigh the potential risks;--radioiodine is effective and safe when appropriate measures are taken to prevent complications, and the long-term eficacy of surveillance without total body scanning should be verified before being universally adopted;--cost-reduction should focus on diagnosis, screening, and the selection of nodules eligible for surgery, rather than on monitoring of patients with DTC. "
09/01/1999 - "There was a trend for better outcome in patients younger than 55 years of age, in patients with tumors under 4 cm in size, and in patients treated by total thyroidectomy. "
