Objectives@#Following the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, adolescents have experienced decreased physical activity and a decline in mental health. This study analyzed the association between changes in depressed mood after the COVID-19 pandemic and physical activity among adolescents. @*Methods@#The analysis was based on the results of the 17th Youth Health Behavior Online Survey conducted in 2021, which included 54848 middle and high school students in South Korea. Information on physical activity included low-intensity physical activity lasting >60 min/day, high-intensity physical activity, and strength training exercises. A logistic regression analysis was performed to evaluate the association between physical activity and changes in depression after the COVID-19 pandemic. @*Results@#After adjusting for sociodemographic characteristics and previous depression, adolescents who performed strength training exercises more than once per week had a 0.95-fold lower risk (odds ratio [OR]=0.948, 95% confidence interval [CI]=0.905–0.994, p= 0.027) of increasing depression after the COVID-19 pandemic, while the risk of decreasing depression increased by 1.22-fold (OR=1.215, 95% CI=1.131–1.305, p60 min/day and high-intensity physical activity. @*Conclusion@#Strength-training exercises are significantly associated with the prevention of depression among adolescents following the COVID-19 pandemic.

PURPOSE: Endoscopic thyroidectomy has brought lots of advantages to the patients since its first introduction. The aim of this study is to evaluate the functional and cosmetic satisfaction of patients receiving endoscopic thyroidectomy with patients receiving conventional thyroidectomy. METHODS: From October 2009 to January 2010, 98 patients underwent with conventional (n=69) or endoscopic (n=22) thyroidectomy. Of these patients 91 who had responded to a questionnaire distributed during the visit outpatient clinic visit. The questionnaire responses were analyzed to compare the satisfaction and postoperative results of these patients. RESULTS: The patient mean age was 45.5±10.1 years and the male to female ratio was 1:8.1. Perceived cosmetic satisfaction was significantly greater in patients who received conventional thyroidectomy than in those who received endoscopic thyroidectomy (P=0.03). Otherwise, there were no significant differences concerning functional problems. The conventional surgery was significantly longer than the endoscopic surgery (P=0.001). However, there were no significant differences in estimated blood loss, postoperative hospital stayand complication rates (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: Endoscopic thyroidectomy might bring satisfactory cosmetic result compared to conventional thyroidectomy. However, further studies are necessary.
