Objective Hypothyroidism(HypoPT) is one of the most common complications of thyroid reoperation,and hypocalcemia caused by HypoPT is a difficult problem in clinical practice.This study aims to investigate the risk factors for hypoealcemia after reoperation of thyroid cancer.Methods Data of 106 patients who underwent reoperation for thyroid cancer from 2013 to 2018 were retrospectively analyzed.According to the parathyroid area involved in the reoperation,the reoperation was graded:low-risk group,intermediate-risk group and high-risk group.Parathyroid hormone(PTH) and total calcium(Ca) levels were monitored at 12 to 24 hours after surgery.The follow-up period was at least 6 months.The PTH cut-off values of postoperative hypocalcemia were analyzed by ROC curve.The chi-square test and logistic regression analysis were used to analyze the risk factors of postoperative hypocalcemia.Results The incidence of transient HypoPT after reoperation was 35%,and the permanent HypoPT was 1.9%.The grade of reoperation was positively correlated with postoperative HypoPT.The ROC curve showed that the PTH cut-off values of postoperative hypocalcemia was 15 pg/ml and area under curve(AUC) was 0.636(95% CI:0.530-0.742,P<0.017).Univariate and multivariate analysis showed that reoperation grade and postoperative PTH<15 pg/ml were independent risk factors for postoperative hypocalcemia.Conclusion The grade of reoperation and postoperative PTH value <15 pg/ml can predict postoperative hypocalcemia.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the NEK-6 expression in gastric cancer tissue and its relationship with clinicopathological features.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Fluorescent quantification PCR and Western blotting were used to examine the NEK-6 expression in 36 samples of fresh gastric cancer tissues and para-cancer gastric mucosal tissues, human gastric cancer cell lines(BGC-823, MKN-28, SGC-7901, MGC-803, HGC-27, AGS), and human normal gastric epithelial cell line (GES-1). Gastric cancer cell lines with the highest expression level were selected to perform the invasion and migration tests, and the effect of down-regulated NEK-6 expression by siRNA transfection on above invasion and migration tests were observed. Meanwhile NEK-6 expression in 94 paraffin samples of gastric cancer tissues was examined by immunohistochemistry and its positivity was compared among different clinicopathologic features.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Fluorescent quantification PCR revealed gastric cancer tissues had significantly higher NEK-6 expression than para-cancer tissues(0.002 80±0.001 36 vs. 0.001 91±0.001 48, P<0.05), NEK-6 expression was up-regulated in 31 gastric cancer tissues (86.1%), and human gastric cancer cell lines had significantly higher NEK-6 expression than GES-1 cells, among whom BGC-823 and AGS cell lines were the highest. Invasion and migration tests showed that as compared to negative siRNA control group, ability of invasion and migration in BGC-823 and AGS cells after siRNA transfection was obviously decreased. In 94 paraffin samples, positive expression rate of NEK-6 was 60.6%(57/94), and NEK-6 expression was significantly associated with gastric cancer distant metastasis, lymph nodes metastasis and TNM staging(all P<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>NEK-6 expression is up-regulated in gastric cancer tissues, which is significantly associated with distant metastasis, lymph nodes metastasis and TNM staging. Down-regulation of NEK-6 expression can inhibit the ability of invasion and migration in gastric cancer cells.</p>
