High incidence of multinodular toxic goitre
in the elderly population in a low iodine intake area vs.
Computed tomography for preoperative evaluation of need for sternotomy in surgery for retrosternal goitre
. Langenbecks Arch Surg.
- where solid or fluid-filled lumps called nodules develop within the thyroid and make the thyroid gland feel lumpy - the nodules can be single or many and may contain fluid (cysts)
Preoperative computed tomography (CT) scan showed that the trachea was shifted to the right and compressed by a giant goitre
, with a lumen of 4 mm x 14 mm at its narrowest point in the subglottic region.
Ultrasonography is important in characterising the goitre
. If malignancy is suspected, a guided FNAC is indicated.
Besides absolute medical indications for more radical treatment such as compressive symptoms, goitre
progression, or suspicion of malignancy, other factors like age, concomitant disorders, and even patient expectation should be taken under consideration.
According to her, a doctor should be consulted urgently if there is a rapidly enlarging goitre
or nodules in the neck, as these might be an indication of thyroid cancer.
In present study, thyroid calcification was present in 17 (34%) patients, out of which 5 patients had malignancy and 6 patients had multinodular goitre
. Also, according to result it was found that, in a multinodular thyroid disease, presence of calcification favours benign lesion but if a solitary nodule shows the presence of calcification, there is high chances of malignancy.
The sequelae of the incomplete surgical management of a bilateral simple multinodular goitre
include a risk of recurrence (1) which progressively increases as the time elapses from the first operation.
Running alongside the site is Llantrisant Road, which would provide access to the development, called Goitre
How would it cope with all this extra traffic?" In a design and access statement submitted as part of the application for Barratt David Wilson, agents RPS said: "The vision for this development is to provide a sustainable development that respects the site's existing features and creates an attractive and well integrated neighbourhood at Goitre
