Abstract

Objective: Of all malignant cancers, differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) has the most rapidly increasing incidence rate in both women and men. Cardiac complications can occur due to the hypothyroidism occurred before radioactive iodine(131) whole-body scan (I-131-WBS). Fifteen days after thyroid hormone treatment withdrawal, TSH levels were measured and the cases over 50 mU/L are accepted as severe acute hypothyroidism. The purpose of this study was to investigate, whether severe acute hypothyroidism before treatment with the I-131-WBS caused any myocardial damage in patients with DTC during postablative follow-up period.
