[8] studied body composition using multiscan computed tomography (CT), which indicated that the AT volume increased and the muscle mass decreased after adenectomy. Reyes-Vidal et al.
AOM episodes diagnosed by a pediatrician and AOM-related procedures, such as tympanocentesis, adenectomy, transtympanic aerator tube insertion were recorded during a 12-month follow-up period.
Three weeks after the second NACT cycle, 13 patients underwent surgery for an extensive hysterectomy and double adnexectomy with systematic pelvic lymph adenectomy, and 29 patients underwent concurrent CRT.
All these 10 patients had been submitted to total thyroidectomy and lymph adenectomy of the central neck (level VI) compartment.
Our patient underwent successful transsphenoidal adenectomy by neurosurgery, and his blood pressure, serum electrolytes, and serum glucose returned to normal levels.
The aggressive behaviour of this neoplasm suggests that the correct indication should be early radical cystectomy with extended lymph adenectomy to avoid the progression into the bladder wall or the metastatic spread.
Although transsphenoidal adenectomy has yielded good results in elderly patients (6), none of our patients was deemed fit for neurosurgical intervention.
The plane between the adenoma and the surgical capsule is then dissected with sharp and blunt dissection, as described by Millen's technique for simple retropubic prostatectomy.[sup.3] The goal is a complete adenectomy. The adenoma should remain attached at the bladder neck; this is generally not difficult to achieve.
We evaluated these crucial factors by two kinetic models and addressed several questions: (a) Which model fits better to the PTH results and which starting concentration is relevant for kinetic calculations (the preoperative baseline or the PTH concentration just at adenectomy)?
Success of surgical intervention was judged by an intraoperative PTH decrease (at least 50% within 10 min after adenectomy) related to the preoperative baseline PTH.
