Clinical efficacy of fixed-dose radioactive iodine for the treatment of hyperthyroidism at a single centre: our experience

If radioactive iodine is the first-line definitive treatment for adults with Graves' disease, inflammatory nodular, and multinodular goitre, unless it is unsuitable or anti-thyroid medications are likely to see remission, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence's guidelines suggest that radioactive iodine be approved as the first-line definitive therapy for adults with Graves' disease, toxic nodular, or multinod Methods Electronic patient records were reviewed retrospectively for all patients treated with radioiodine therapy for hyperthyroidism between July 2017 and March 2020 at a district general hospital in the United Kingdom, between July 2017 and March 2020. Patients of Non-Graves in Graves had a much shorter time to discharge than Graves' patients receiving Iodine-131. Conclusions of the present study report show that a single fixed dose of Iodine-131 therapy is highly safe and comparable to research findings. To determine treatment options, we suggest that the common use of scoring tools be used to determine the likelihood of relapse for all newly diagnosed hyperthyroid patients to determine treatment strategies.

Cerebrovascular intervention therapy worked positively in one patient with severe cerebral venous sinus thrombosis due to hyperthyroidism: a case report and review of the literature

Background: Hyperthyroidism has gradually been demonstrated as a rare predisposing factor for cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, with more compact clots and resistance to fibrinolysis, which has also been a predictor of worse outcomes. If you're looking for a unique venous sinus thrombosis, a new treatment strategy should be implemented as soon as possible because they'll deteriorate quickly. Case Presentation We present a 32-year-old Mongoloid woman who suffered with progressive headache, impaired memory, and right limb weakness, and was diagnosed with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis caused by hyperthyroidism in this case study. If traditional therapy struggles, cerebrovascular intervention may be a safe and effective option for patients with severe cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.
