    Abstract : During 2003-2005, approximately 3,000 de novo hyperthyroid patients were collected in Sweden and became one of the world's largest hyperthyroidism studies. This dissertation shows that many people diagnosed with hyperthyroidism live with its impacts even after excess of thyroid hormone has ended. READ MORE

  2. 2. Calcium Homeostasis in Patients with Graves' Disease

    Author : Maria Annerbo; Per Hellman; Peter Stålberg; Peyman Björklund; Filipsson Nyström Helena; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Graves Disease; Calcium homeostasis; Total thyroidectomy; Bone metabolism; Calcium sensing receptor; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Patients with Graves´ Disease (GD) have a higher risk of developing more severe and prolonged hypocalcaemia after total thyroidectomy (TT) than patients who undergo surgery for benign atoxic goitre. Since TT is the most effective treatment for GD, it is crucial to identify mechanisms for postoperative hypocalcaemia. READ MORE

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total thyroidectomy; Graves´ disease; multinodular goitre; transient hypocalcaemia; permanent hypocalcaemia;

    Abstract : Background: Thyroid surgery is the most common endocrine surgical operation and is considered by many to be at the zenith of endocrine surgery. A good hemostasis is mandatory during a thyroid operation and many new devices have been available during the last two decades. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hyperthyroidism and its impact on cardiovascular disease : with special emphasis on atrial fibrillation

    Author : Peter Giesecke; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Background Hyperthyroidism is a common disease throughout the world, affecting 0.5%-2% of women and one-tenth as many men at some time. Graves’ disease and toxic nodular goitre are the two most common etiologies. Cardiovascular symptoms are often prominent, and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well-known complication. READ MORE

  5. 5. Calcium Homeostasis After Thyroid Surgery

    Abstract : Calcium homeostasis after thyroid surgery was studied during the immediate postoperative period and after one year. One day after hemithyroidectomy ionised calcium decreased whereas basal PTH did not change. EDTA stimulated maximal and total PTH secretion and set-point decreased on postoperative day 1 and normalised on day 7. READ MORE
