Objective: To determine if the treatment of subclinical hyperthyroidism will reduce the rate of atrial fibrillation, the main complication of this condition.
The overall objective of the HEAT study is to determine the acute effect of propranolol on energy expenditure in patients suffering from hyperthyroidism and to evaluate the consequences of...
Subclinical hyperthyroidism is defined as the presence of serum free thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) levels within the reference range and a reduced serum thyrotrophin (TSH) level...
Hyperthyroidism is the second most common endocrine disorder in the world with Graves' disease being the commonest. Anti thyroid drugs including methimazole, carbimazole, and propylthioura...
Hypothesis: What is the natural course after treatment with radioactive iodine in patients with hyperthyroidism? What are the determinants for the development of acute hypo- or hyperthyro...
The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of undiagnosed and untreated hyperthyroidism among patients with suppressed thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
Background Melatonin, an important neurohormone released from the pineal gland, is generally accepted to exercise an inhibitor effect on the thyroid gland. Zinc mediates the effects of many hormones a...
Although hyperthyroidism may be associated with atherosclerosis, its pathogenesis is not well known. TSH receptor antibody (TRAb) has been shown to be responsible for increased orbital fat tissue in G...
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)-secreting pituitary adenomas (TSHomas) are uncommon, and majority of the patients present with symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Herein, we report the first case of TSHoma...
To assess whether it is possible to identify the neonatal predictors of neonatal hyperthyroidism at the presymptomatic stage of the disease.
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
Surgery performed on an outpatient basis. It may be hospital-based or performed in an office or surgicenter.
Surgical excision, performed under general anesthesia, of the atheromatous tunica intima of an artery. When reconstruction of an artery is performed as an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ATHERECTOMY.
Electrophoresis in which a second perpendicular electrophoretic transport is performed on the separate components resulting from the first electrophoresis. This technique is usually performed on polyacrylamide gels.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
