OBJECTIVE: In this study, we have evaluated the organ procurement and transplantation activity from donors after cardiac death (DCD) at our institution over an 8-year period. Our aim was to determine whether this program influenced transplantation programs, or donation after brain death (DBD) activity. METHODS: We prospectively collected our procurement and transplantation statistics in a database for retrospective review. RESULTS: We observed an increasing trend in potential and actual DCD number. The mean conversion rate turning potential into effective donors was 58.1%. DCD accounted for 16.6% of the deceased donor (DD) pool over 8 years. The mean age for effective DCD donors was 53.9 years (range, 3-79). Among the effective donors, 63.3% (n = 31) came from the transplant center and 36.7% (n = 18) were referred from collaborative hospitals. All donors were Maastricht III category. The number of kidney and liver transplants using DCD sources tended to increase. DCD kidney transplants represented 10.8% of the DD kidney pool and DCD liver transplants made up 13.9% of the DD liver pool over 8 years. The DBD program activity increased in the same time period. In 2009, 17 DCD and 33 DBD procurements were performed in a region with a little >1 million inhabitants. CONCLUSION: The establishment of a DCD program in our institution enlarged the donor pool and did not compromise the development of the DBD program. In our experience, DCD are a valuable source for abdominal organ transplantation. [less ▲]

Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) arises from parafollicular C cells secreting calcitonin. MTC occurs both as sporadic tumors and as part of specific inherited autosomal dominant syndromes in which point mutations within a discrete set of RET codons were described. Total thyroidectomy and aggressive neck dissection represents the only chance for cure in the affected patients. Therefore, all patients with thyroid nodular disease should undergo measurement of calcitonin plasma levels to allow preclinical diagnosis of the disease and early appropriate surgery ("secondary prevention"). In case of proband patient for inherited disease, all the family members should be genetically screened to detect the disease gene carriers. Patients with germline mutation would benefit either from earlier surgery at the stage of C-cell hyperplasia or microcarcinoma or prophylactic surgery (total thyroidectomy without neck dissection) (primary prevention) before the onset of any C-cells pathology. The ideal age for performance of such prophylactic surgery is determined by the genotypic features of the disease. [less ▲]

Multihormonal bilateral petrosal sinus sampling (BPSS) has been proposed to improve corticotroph microadenomas prediction of lateralisation. Few series have simultaneously compared data of pituitary MRI, surgical findings and multihormonal BPSS. Seven patients (6F/1M) with Cushing's disease, mean age at diagnosis of 35 years (range 24-55) were prospectively studied to compare radiological and multihormonal BPSS data with surgical and pathological findings. In untreated patients, simultaneous measures of ACTH, TSH and prolactine (PRL) were done at time 0, 7, 15, 22 minutes after CRH (500 mg) and TRH (200 mg) stimulation. An intersinus gradient of 1.4 was considered as a lateralisation. All microadenomas were identified during surgery, diameters ranged from 2 to 7 mm. All patients were in long-term surgical remission. Pathological studies confirmed a tumoral tissue with ACTH immunostaining in 6/7 cases and PRL in 3/7 cases. Pituitary MRI correctly identified tumors in 4 cases, the remaining tumors were not seen. Basal and stimulated intersinus gradients of ACTH, TSH and PRL were homolateral in 6/7 cases and were coincident with surgical findings in 4/7 cases. The other three cases were contralateral to MRI and surgical data. In conclusion, simultaneous gradient of ACTH, PRL and TSH did not improve lateralisation prediction in this series. Hormonal hypersecretion was homolateral in six cases whereas pathological studies demonstrated a mixed secretion in only three cases. A preferential pituitary draining could explain these discordances. Data from our series and from others (done with CRH stimulation and ACTH-PRL measures) strongly suggest a paracrine interaction between tumoral and normal pituitary tissue. [less ▲]

Thyrotoxicosis is the clinical syndrome that results when tissues are exposed to high levels of circulating thyroid hormones. In most instances, thyrotoxicosis is due to hyperthyroidism, a term reserved for disorders characterized by overproduction of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. Nevertheless, thyrotoxicosis may also result from a variety of conditions other than thyroid hyperfunction. The present report focuses on the etiologies, pathophysiology and treatment of iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis. Iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis may be caused by 1) subacute thyroiditis (a result of lymphocytic infiltration, cellular injury, trauma or radiation) with release of preformed hormones into circulation, 2) excessive ingestion of thyroid hormones ("thyrotoxicosis factitia"), 3) iodine-induced hyperthyroidism (radiological contrast agents, topical antiseptics or other medications). Among these causes of iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis, that induced by the iodine overload and cytotoxicity associated with amiodarone represents a significant challenge. Successful management of amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis requires close cooperation between endocrinologists and endocrine Surgeons. Surgical treatment may have a leading yet often underestimated role in view of the potential life-threatening severity of this disease, whereas others kinds of iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis are usually treated conservatively.
