Explore the latest in endocrine surgery, including recent advances in surgical techniques and approaches to thyroid and parathyroid disorders.
This cross-sectional cohort study uses the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database to evaluate whether an association exists between preoperative anemia and postoperative 30-day morbidity and mortality outcomes following thyroidectomy in adult patients with thyroid cancer.
This prospective study examines the diagnostic accuracy of a multigene genomic classifier test for diagnosis of benign disease or cancer in thyroid nodules with indeterminate cytology.

This cohort study assesses the association of institutional availability of multimodal analgesia pathways with adoption and adherence to such pathways, and the frequency of opioid prescriptions at discharge among adults following thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
This single-center cohort study investigates factors associated with perioperative complications and hospital length of stay in adults undergoing laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
This cohort study assesses the opioid prescribing practices and opioid needs for patients undergoing thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
