23 Summary Toxic multinodular goiter is the manifesting stage of a chronic process of hyperplasia and acquisition of automaticity in the thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism, overt or subclinical, is an indication for definitive interventions, in the form of thyroidectomy or radio-active iodine ablation. In the absence of suspicion of malignancy, surgery is probably still a safer offer in younger patients in view of the accumulated life-time risk for an incidental carcinoma to progress into a manifesting cancer. ...
Objectives: This study aims to determine the diagnosis of incidental thyroid carcinoma in patients operated on for multinodular goitre. Study design: Descriptive. Place and duration: Surgical Department, Nishtar Hospital Multan during January 2005 to June 2006. Patients and methods: Study was carried out on 100 patients of either sex, above the age of 14 years with euthyroid multinodular goitre. Results: Of the 100 patients of multinodular goitre, 89 were females, with female to male ratio of 8.09:1. The pressure symptoms were present in 28 patients, commonest one was dyspnoe in 18%. Swelling was bilateral in 82 patient with retrostemal extension in 6%.Thyroid carcinoma was reported in 11% patients during histopathology after subtotal thyroidectomies. The most common malignancy was papillary carcinoma with 54.54%. Papillary to follicular ratio was 2:1. Postoperative complications occurred in 8 patients, wound infection 4%, temporary hoarseness 3% and Hypoparathyroidism 1%. No patient required ...

N2 - Background Recombinant human thyrotropin (rhTSH) can be used to enhance radioiodine therapy for shrinking multinodular goitre. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the effectiveness of rhTSH pretreatment and radioiodine therapy with that of radioiodine alone for treating benign nodular goitre. Methods The PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Scopus and ClinicalTrials.gov databases were searched to identify studies published before September 2014. A meta-analysis was performed to calculate the pooled effect size using random-effects models. The primary outcome was the reduction in thyroid volume. Secondary outcomes included thyroid function, ...
The recommendations of the ATA and ETA support the use of scintigraphy for nodules present in a multinodular goiter if the patients serum TSH level is low-normal or suppressed, which was observed in 32% of the autonomous nodules studied here. This percentage would have been even higher if a low-normal serum TSH had been defined as higher than the 0.39 mU/L set in this study. Nevertheless, in a considerable percentage of apparently euthyroid patients (TSH ,0.4 mU/L), 99mTcO4 scintigraphy indicated a possibly autonomously functioning area. These nodules were selected by their scintigraphic appearance. The authors consider them to be adenomas.. Presumably, thyroids in patients with multinodular goiters whose serum TSH is ,0.4 mU/L do not produce excessive amounts of thyroid hormones, but some areas are merely more active than other areas within the goiter. This could correspond to cohorts of follicles that do not correspond to true, clearly circumscribed adenomas. This pathology is obviously ...
Thyroid gland metastatic tumors are rare in clinical practice. Clear cell RCC is one of common metastatic tumors to thyroid. We here reported a case of incidentally found clear cell renal carcinoma metastasis to the thyroid gland 3 years after nephrectomy, in the thyroidectomy procedure performed for the patient due to the thyroid enlargement caused by multinodular goiter. A 65-year-old Iranian man with a history of multinodular goiter referred to our surgery clinic for thyroidectomy because of compressive effects on the trachea. Patient had a history of nephrectomy due to clear cell RCC 3 years ago. After thyroidectomy, gross and histological examination of thyroid revealed clear cell renal carcinoma metastasis to the thyroid gland in the setting of a multinodular goiter. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemistry staining. Patients with multinodular goiter are more prone to present with metastasis to thyroid gland if they have a history of malignancy, especially renal cell carcinoma.

Background: Euthyroid multinodular goiter (MNG) is common, but little is known about the genetic variations conferring predisposition. Previously, a family with MNG of adolescent onset was reported in which some family members developed papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC). Methods: Genome-wide linkage analysis and next-generation sequencing were conducted to identify genetic variants that may confer disease predisposition. A multipoint nonparametric LOD score of 3.01 was obtained, covering 19 cM on chromosome 20p. Haplotype analysis reduced the region of interest to 10 cM. Results: Analysis of copy number variation identified an intronic InDel (∼1000 bp) in the PLCB1 gene in all eight affected family members and carriers (an unaffected person who has inherited the genetic trait). This InDel is present in approximately 1% of healthy Caucasians. Next-generation sequencing of the region identified no additional disease-associated variant, suggesting a possible role of the InDel. Since PLCB1 ...

Abstract Background and aims We aimed to assess bone mineral density (BMD) in geriatric patients with hyperthyroidism caused by TNG. Materials and methods Bone mineral density was measured at the lumbar spine and proximal femur, using dualX-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in 90 patients with TNG (mean age; 69.2± 4.4 years) and compared with those in 42 age-matched healthy subjects (mean age; 68.40 ± 4.3 years). Serum levels of TSH, fT3, fT4, 25-OH vitamin D and PTH were measured. Results BMD was significantly lower at total spine (0.904 ± 0.1 vs. 1.114 ± 0.1 g/cm2 ) and total hip (0.850 ± 0.1 vs. 1.079 ± 0.1 g/cm2 ) in male patients with TNG in comparison to the healthy men (p = 0.001, p\0.001). Postmenopausal women with TNG had lower BMD measurements at total lumbar spine (0.754 ± 0.1 vs. 0.870 ± 0.2 g/cm2 , p\0.001) and total hip (0.765 ± 0.1 vs. 0.831 ± 0.2 g/cm2 , p\0.001) in comparison to the healthy women. T scores of total lumbar spine and hip were lower in patients with subclinical ...

Antithyroid drugs induce sustained remission in only 55% of cases. Radioiodine, the overwhelming choice of specialists, may pose risks, including aggravation of ophthalmopathy. Surgical ablation should be considered only if a highly skilled surgeon is available. Thyroid storm requires aggressive management, and definitive treatment is needed for toxic adenoma or toxic multinodular goiter.

I think, based on the research Ive done, that my thyroid is gone hyper as evidenced by my previous high uptake six months ago, and that possibly I even have toxic multinodular goiter, all easily treatable, if I can just get a Dr. to pay attention. They are all thrown by the sometimes normal TSH. But various drugs Im taking including HRT, aspirin, allergy meds, sleep drugs, etc. can all alter the results of TSH, free T3, free T4 tests, so they look fine. Dr.Evil was absolutely no help, because creative discussions about pharmaceutical interactions were simply beyond her. My other endocrinologists have tried to convince me that Id just feel better if I got pregnant, and if you remember, the last one decided that I must be diabetic, or have PCOS, even though that was impossible ...
Background: DICER1 is the only miRNA biogenesis component associated with an inherited tumor syndrome, featuring multinodular goiter (MNG) and rare pediatric-onset lesions. Other susceptibility genes for familial forms of MNG likely exist. Methods: Whole exome sequencing of a kindred with early-onset MNG and schwannomatosis was followed by investigation of germline pathogenic variants that fully segregated with the disease. Genome wide analyses were performed on 13 tissue samples from familial and non-familial DGCR8-E518K positive tumors, including MNG, schwannomas, papillary thyroid cancers (PTC) and Wilms Tumors. MiRNA profiles of four tissue types were compared, and sequencing of miRNA, pre-miRNA and mRNA was performed in a subset of 9 schwannomas, four of which harbor DGCR8-E518K. Results: We identified c.1552G,A;p.E518K in DGCR8, a microprocessor located in 22q, in the kindred. The variant identified is a somatic hotspot in Wilms Tumors and has been identified in two PTCs. Copy number loss ...

Beware the Zombie Thyroid!!. Periodically, I update metabolism.com with interesting problems from my medical practice. Last week I was reminded of a particular thyroid disease which is little known and deserves more attention. In my patients case, she had an inactive thyroid (hypothyroid) due to Hashimotos thyroiditis for several years which, on its own switched to become an over-active thyroid (hyperthyroid). I call this event a Zombie Thyroid. Dont bother trying to look this term up since Zombie Thyroid is my own terminology. A Zombie Thyroid is, of course, one which returns from the dead. Most times when the thyroid is destroyed by either natural forces or by human intervention, the destruction is complete and irreversible. Rarely however, a thyroid which ceased function for years resumes producing thyroid hormone and may even becoming hyper or over-functioning. Such was the case of my patient last week. Confusion may result because the newly risen thyroid begins adding thyroid ...

I cant remember when I discovered it, but sometime in the last 6 or 7 years, I discovered a small lump in my neck on the right side. It caused me no pain so I ignored it. Over the years, it has grown a bit. I dont have any pain at the lump site itself, however last year (2015), I started noticing a fullness in my neck area, trouble losing weight and increased acid reflux.. In January 2016, I went to an internal medicine doctor as recommended by a family member (nurse) on my husbands side of the family and was told that my thyroid was functioning properly after some blood tests were run. I also discovered that I officially had anemia which I had suspected for quite some time.. My doctors office scheduled a neck ultrasound that I did not go to for a few different reasons and basically thats where I left it, until now. We went through some pretty devastating financial times right after my doctors visit and I figured since I was not in any pain, I would put it on hold until the chaos ...
Graves disease an autoimmune disease, is a disorder in which the body attacks itself. The body produces antibodies that bind to cells on the thyroid gland and stimulate them to make extra thyroid hormone. The antibodies can also stimulate cells in the orbit, the space around the eye, to cause them to grow and divide. While Graves disease is the most common thyroid condition associated with eye changes, other diseases such as Hashimotoss thyroiditis and toxic nodular goiter may affect the eye as well ...

Results: There were a total of 801 specimens, of which 716 were females and 85 were males. Maximum number of thyroid lesions were seen in the age group 41-50 yrs. Multinodular goiter was the most common non-neoplastic thyroid lesion (71.5%) followed by thyroiditis. There were 151 carcinomas (18.8%). Maximum numbers of carcinomas were seen in age group 31-40 (28.8%).The frequency of carcinomas among the total thyroid lesions was almost same for both males and females (18.82% and 18.85%). Papillary carcinoma was the most frequent malignancy, out of which half were of the micro papillary subtype ...
Patients with solitary toxic nodules are often younger than patients with multinodular toxic goiters. They are slightly more common in men, as opposed to multinodular goiters in which sex prediliction is roughly equal. In young people, surgery is often the treatment of choice for solitary hyperfunctioning nodules, though radioiodine or percutaneous intranodular injection of ethanol may also be used. I-131 therapy is used, however, higher doses of radioiodine are required (15-25 mCi) as these nodules are relatively radioiodine insensitive ...

INTRODUCTION. Levothyroxine (L-T4) is the drug used worldwide in replacement therapy for patients with hypothyroidism, being the third most common medication dispensed in the United States in the last few years.1 L-T4 is also used as suppressive therapy after surgical removal of thyroid cancer2 and for treating patients with nodular goiter in order to arrest its growth, although this use is still debated.3. L-T4 was first isolated by Kendall in 1914 from animal-derived desiccated thyroid, which contains a combination of T4 and triiodothyronine (T3).4 Synthetic L-T4 came into use for thyroid treatment in the 1950s and was widely adopted as the primary thyroid hormone replacement drug, replacing the natural desiccated thyroid that had been used during the previous 50-year period.5. Traditionally, L-T4 has been available in tablet form as a stable salt that contains sodium; approximately 60-90 % of the dose is absorbed in the jejunum and ileum within 3 hours of ingestion.6 Absorption is maximal ...

Patients with large benign goiters often present local compressive symptoms that require surgical treatment, including dysphagia, neck tightness, and airway obstruction. In contrast, patients with such goiters who remain asymptomatic may be observed after exclusion of malignancy. The use of levothyroxine (LT4) to reduce the volume of the goiter is still a controversial treatment for large goiters, and the optimal surgical procedure for multinodular goiter is still debatable. Radioiodine is a safe and effective treatment option when used alone or in combination with recombinant human TSH. This review discusses current therapeutic options to treat diffuse and multinodular nontoxic benign goiters.
A 35-year-old woman presented with a thyroid mass, weakness and shortness of breath of 3 years duration. On physical examination, she had a diffusely enlarged thyroid gland with multiple nodules. There were no signs to suggest immune suppression. The patient farmed and raised livestock. Biochemical tests and hemogram were normal. She underwent surgery, and a histological examination of the surgical specimen revealed nodular hyperplasia. Microscopically, silver methenamine (PASM) stain-positive hyphae that divided into branches at 45° and conidia were detected beside the thyroid capsule, with conidia in the cystic nodule. Moreover, ischemic changes of the thyroid tissue were observed closer to the capsule. We report a case of Aspergillosis of the thyroid of a patient who underwent surgery for a multinodular goiter.

Diseases of the endocrine system are common,[8] including conditions such as diabetes mellitus, thyroid disease, and obesity. Endocrine disease is characterized by irregulated hormone release (a productive pituitary adenoma), inappropriate response to signaling (hypothyroidism), lack of a gland (diabetes mellitus type 1, diminished erythropoiesis in chronic renal failure), or structural enlargement in a critical site such as the thyroid (toxic multinodular goitre). Hypofunction of endocrine glands can occur as a result of loss of reserve, hyposecretion, agenesis, atrophy, or active destruction. Hyperfunction can occur as a result of hypersecretion, loss of suppression, hyperplastic or neoplastic change, or hyperstimulation.. Endocrinopathies are classified as primary, secondary, or tertiary. Primary endocrine disease inhibits the action of downstream glands. Secondary endocrine disease is indicative of a problem with the pituitary gland. Tertiary endocrine disease is associated with dysfunction ...
In Western society, the percentage of elderly people is continually growing. The prevalence of goiter increases with the age and it is estimated that 90% of women over 60 years old and 60% of men over 80 years old have a relief of thyroid nodules. This has great importance for these patients, because the incidence of malignant transformation is higher than younger ones and these are often tumor very aggressive patterns. If thyroidectomy is indicated for patients with suspected neoplasm and severe obstructive symptoms, their surgery should not be delayed since a late urgent operation could raise morbidity and mortality risk. The main indications for young patients are due to obstructive and metabolic causes over and above suspected cancer.. Total thyroidectomy is considered by many authors as the treatment of choice. ...
In 1922, Epstein and Lande1 studied the blood cholesterol of 24 patients, 14 of whom had exophthalmic goiter and 10 of whom had toxic nodular goiter. The conclusion from this group was that, in general, the decrease in blood cholesterol bears a direct relationship to the extent of increase of the basal metabolic rate. In nine of the 14 cases this was true. The lowest basal metabolic rate of plus 14 corresponded to a blood cholesterol of 196 mg. per 100 c.c., and the highest basal rate of plus 82 to a cholesterol of 90 mg. However, in this group ...
ANTITHYROID AGENTS are used in the treatment of overactivity of the thyroid gland - hyperthyroidism. thyrotoxicosis or Graves disease. In thyrotoxicosis there is excess secretion of the thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3; liothyronine). This excess results in an exaggerated version of the normal activity of the gland, so that there are the symptoms of increased metabolic rate, an increase in body temperature, sweating, increased sensitivity to heat, nervousness, tremor, raised heart rate, tendency to fatigue and sometimes loss of body weight with an increased appetite. The cause of thyrotoxicosis may be simple overactivity of the gland; or toxic nodular goitre where there is secretion from a benign tumour or a carcinoma of the thyroid; or diffuse toxic goitre (Graves disease; exothalmic goitre) in which there are additional symptoms, including a swelling of the neck (goitre) due to enlargement of the gland, and protrusion of the eyes (exothalmos). How the disease is ...
Also called Parrys disease. Plummers disease is the cause of about 5% of cases of hyperthyroidism. It does not usually remit after a course of antithyroid drugs. Plummers condition characterized by marked enlargement of the thyroid gland (goitre), firm thyroid nodules, and mild overproduction of thyroid hormone.. Plummers disease, which usually occurs in older people, is of unknown etiology. Its symptoms resemble those of Graves disease, a condition believed to be an autoimmune disorder.. Also known as Graves disease, thyrotoxicosis, toxic diffuse goiter, toxic nodular goiter and Basedows disease. Hyperthyroidism is a condition marked by excessive production of thyroid hormones that results in multiple-system abnormalities ranging from mild to severe hormonal imbalances.. The physical examination may reveal a rapid and/or irregular heart beat, warm, thin, moist skin over most of the body. Other physical signs which can occur in certain people are eyelid lag, eyelid retraction, abnormal ...
Pathophysiology and histopathology. The most important factor of colloid goitre appearance is a reduction in TSH stimulation for a prolonged period of time.11 Pathologically, these are often known as hyperplastic and colloid nodules, sometimes they may also be described as adenomatous. The majority of cystic thyroid lesions are hyperplastic nodules that have undergone extensive liquefactive degeneration by the time they are detected. In cases of diffuse goitre, there will be follicular cell hyperplasia.12 In chronic settings with continued TSH stimulation, some follicles become autonomous and secrete hormones that will depress other areas, which then involute. This leads to multinodular goitre with areas of focal hyperplasia and areas of involution and fibrosis.2,11,13. The thyroid gland stores the thyroid hormone in an acellular glycoprotein called colloid. Colloid is present in a variety of forms, from watery and pale to thick and dense, resulting in a broad spectrum of manifestations in ...

A noncancerous enlargement of the thyroid gland, visible as a swelling at the front of the neck, that is often associated with iodine deficiency.
Background: Although deficiency in dietary iodine remains the main cause of endemic and sporadic goitre, naturally occurring goitrogens in foods are additional factors that play a major role in developing goitre. In this study we focused on the relationship of different potential goitrogenous food and the development of goitre in preschool children in the rural area of Bwamanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Objectives: First, to do a semi-systematic literature review on the incidence of goitre and the role of dietary pattern in its genesis. Second, describe the incidence of goitre in preschool children in DRC in relation to age, sex, and season. Third, examine the effects of specific food items on occurrence of goitre in these children. Methods: For the 1st objective, we used a semi- systematic method to search for relevant published articles to the topic area. We searched four online databases, three online journals, five authors and the reference lists of the identified key ...
Colloid goiter is a hyperplastic disease of thyroid follicular cells due to multifactorial causes. One of the most accepted and well-documented hypotheses of etiology is a reduced production of thyroid hormone and consequent increased level of thyroid stimulant hormone (TSH), which initially causes gland hyperplasia, followed by the development of multiple monoclonal adenomas1-3. In multinodular goiters, each individual nodule may respond in a diverse way under TSH influence and, as a physiologic structure, is dependent on genetic characteristics inherited from the stem cells4. Among the causal factors of colloid goiter, foods that block the hormonal synthesis, mutations in TSH receptors, iodine-poor diets, globulin stimulation of thyroid development, growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and genetic factors are implicated3.. In addition to follicular cells, in the thyroid gland there are C-cells, which are producers of calcitonin, an important hormone acting on calcium ...
Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma (IVLBCL) is a subtype of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) that is rare and highly aggressive and that may progressively involve many organs. CNS (central nervous system), BM (bone marrow) and skin are the most common systems involved. To date, only 2 cases of IVLBCL involving the thyroid have been reported. Here, we report a case of IVLBCL involving the thyroid and accompanied by bilateral nodular goiter. In this case, a thyroid mass was identified in a physical examination of a 68-year-old male who initially presented with dyspnea accompanied by intermittent headache for approximately 1 month. Computed tomography scans revealed that the left lobar thyroid was occupied by a large, slightly lower density mass (5.8 × 4.7 × 8.4 cm). However, the patient had no hyperthyroidism or hoarseness. Levels of thyroid hormones and anti-thyroid autoantibodies in the serum were normal preoperatively. Thyroid mass resection was performed to establish a diagnosis and to relieve
The risks are related to the failure to comply with the parathyroid glands, small glands that are responsible for the balance of the calcium ion in the body with the secretion of the parathyroid hormone. The other problem of thyroidectomy is respect for the recurrent nerves, responsible for the innervation of the vocal cords. Their injury or the need for section leads to altered voice problems and in cases of bilaterality also to respiratory problems. Fortunately, in our case history we have not had cases of recurrent nerve injury and signs of permanent hyperparathyroidism even if such complications are contemplated in the literature.. To eliminate the risk of injuring the recurrent nerves and for medico-legal problems, for some time at the UOC of General Surgery of Scorrano we have been using an NIM (Nerve Intraoperative Monitoring) technique for intraoperative monitoring of the recurrent nerves in order to have, during the intervention the exact detection of nerve function and, thus avoiding ...

Background: Hashimotos thyroiditis cannot be distinguished from those of multinodular goitre (MNG). Basically the thyroid is enlarged bilaterally with an uneven parenchymal pattern mainly showing decrease in the normal echogenicity. The ultrasound appearance of Hashimotos thytoiditis is that of a diffuse glandular enlargement with irregular lobulated margins. There is a generalised decrease in parenchymal reflectivity with a typical lobulated pattern due to highly reflective fibrous bands which separate the echo poor areas. Subjects and Methods: Based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 80 cases of thyroid lesions diagnosed by ultrasound were included in the study. The ultrasonography and ultrasound elastography examination was done in the department of Radiology .These 80 cases which were found to have thyroid lesion on ultrasound were subjected to FNAC for confirmation of ultrasound finding and establishment of final diagnosis. Results: Study showed no vascularity (TYPE1) and (TYPE2) ...
RESULTS: The ultrasound (US) and cytological characteristics of the partially cystic thyroid nodules of 145 patients, 127 women with a mean age of 53.1 years (SD 19.7) and 18 men with a mean age of 60 (SD 19.7), were reviewed. The mean size of the nodules was 28.07 mm (SD 11.23). Thirty-seven (25.5%) were solitary nodules and 98 (72.59%) formed parts of multinodular goiters. Twenty-eight (19.3%) of the cytologies proved to be inadequate samples, 104 (71.7%) were benign, 7 (4.8%) were suspicious, and 4 (2.8%) were malignant. The sensitivity for detecting malignancy was >90% when the percentage of the solid portion of the nodule was greater than 50%; these values remained unchanged when combined with other sonographic findings. The greatest specificity for malignancy was associated with the presence of microcalcifications (99%); however, none of the associations observed were statistically significant ...

A 62-year-old woman visited our pain clinic and she presented with radicular pain on her neck, right shoulder and arm. Cervical MRI showed a right subarticular protruded disc with right foraminal stenosis at C6-7 together with multinodular thyroid goiter. She was initially treated with transforaminal steroid injection under C-arm fluoroscopy at the C6-7 level, but the effect didnt last for more than 4 days. Therefore, pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) treatment was done at the right 7th cervical dorsal root ganglion. After 15 minutes, the neck gradually swelled up and then neck pain and dyspnea developed. The CT image revealed cervical hematoma and left sided tracheal shift. These symptoms were spontaneously relieved after 12 hours and then the patient was discharged without any other complications. This case demonstrates the necessity of having thorough knowledge of the anatomical variations and standard anatomy for conducting safe and efficient medical practice. ...

By palpation or scan, a mass-like abnormality is detected in the thyroid gland. Early multinodular goiter (hyperplastic or adenomatoid nodules) forms malfunctional nodules and masses...neoplastic masses are benign (adenoma) or malignant (carcinoma). Here is the ARUP thyroid nodule decision tree & testing algorithm HERE. These things are discovered by patients themselves, friends, dentists, examining physicians, and during medical imaging of the neck following emergency room visits for injuries requiring head & neck imaging (especially since about 1990). Endocrinologists find them during physical examinations which may include an ultrasound neck exam while in the office. Pre-operative diagnostic fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology samples are a way to possibly get a pre-operative indication of whether one is dealing with nodular hyperplasia (malfunction: no more than lobectomy...if any surgery) vs. nodular Hashimotos (auto-immune: no more than lobectomy...if any surgery...unless carcinoma is ...

In early February we had our annual Goiter Screening. Dozens of patients presented on screening day to be evaluated by the surgeon. Some of these patients we have been following closely in our goiter clinic since way back in September. These are patients that had abnormal thyroid levels. We monitor them on a monthly basis to try and normalize these levels prior to surgery. Its always very satisfying to get them in tip top shape by the time the surgeon arrives. Its a fun process as well because these are patients that we have a sustained relationship with. When we finally get to share their surgery date with them it feels like celebrating with a friend.. ...

During the past 50 years much has been written about the surgical management of patients with toxic goiter. Just before the introduction of iodine 12 years ago, the operative mortality had shown a steady reduction with increasing experience until, in the best clinics, it varied from 1 to 4 per cent. Not only had the mortality as a whole shown a marked reduction, but the mortality record of every thyroid surgeon had shown a marked decrease as his experience increased. This drop in the mortality rate may be attributed to two factors: (1) increase in surgical skill and improvement in ...
