For a thyroid FNAB
specimen to be considered satisfactory, at least a minimum of 6 groups of well-preserved/well-visualized cells were required.
2%) a tamponade of the bladder, which required the removal of the blood clots from the bladder using a urethral catheter; 8 cases of acute pyelonephritis; in 7 of these patients, regression occurred Only after achieving an adequate drainage of the PCS of the kidney by replacing the nephrostomic drainage, and the other patient underwent FNAB
of the kidney: 19 cases involving the replacement of a nephrostomic drainage due to die inadequacy of a drainage of PCS of a kidney (n=10), a partial fall of the drainage (n=4) and urine blotting from a fistula by a drainage and the development of a urinoma (n=5): 5 cases involving the placement of a stent due to damage of the permeability of the ureter.
In a review of MEDLINE looking at publications on FNAB
between 1996 and 2002 there were 5 609 articles published on FNAB
Because screening of the cohort was conducted according to a standardized protocol and no meaningful differences were observed in compliance rates with FNAB
or thyroid surgery by oblast, case ascertainment was unlikely to have caused a geographic difference.
Unfortunately, the published PAX8/PPARG RT-PCR methods struggle with reliable amplification of RNA at low concentrations or poor RNA quality, a problem frequently encountered with scanty FNAB
needle washes, or formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections.
of the left thyroid mass showed hypercellular aspirates composed of loose clusters and scattered, single spindle cells with relatively uniform central nuclei, speckled chromatin pattern, occasional conspicuous nucleoli, and wispy cytoplasm (Fig.

Ultrasound examination is of pivotal importance in the management of DTC neck recurrences, and in this case was supported by FNAB

In selected patients, FNAB
may be useful in planning surgical treatment.
