Hypoparathyroidism (HPT) is one of the most frequentand severe complications of thyroid surgery. It is caused by intraoperative damage, devascularization or accidental removal of the parathyroid glands (PTGs). The incidence of postoperative HPT is directly proportional to surgery extent and surgeon's experience.

To register the frequency of central and lateral lymph node metastases (LNMs) from papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMCs), and to assess whether sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy of the lateral compartment is an accurate technique to select patients with true positive but clinically negative lymph nodes for one-time selective lateral neck dissection (sLND). The correlation between tumor characteristics (size, multifocality, bilaterality, capsular invasion) and LNMs was analyzed.
During a 10-year-period (2004-2013), 111 clinically N0 patients with PTMCs had total thyroidectomy, central neck dissection and SLN biopsy of the lateral neck compartment in our institution.

To evaluate the adverse outcomes after delayed breast reconstruction (DBR) by abdominal advancement flap (AAF) and permanent prosthesis in patients treated with mastectomy due to unilateral breast carcinoma, as well as to determine which factors are predictive for their occurrence.
The study included 155 patients operated at the Institute for Oncology and Radiology of Serbia from 1996 to 2010. All patients had total mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection, followed by specific oncological treatment.

To analyze the correlation of primary tumor (PT) pathological characteristics (size, stage, type and grade) and the extent of initial surgical treatment of non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with the incidence and time to local recurrence (LR) and disease-free survival (DFS), as well as to determine in what way these parameters and LR localizations affect the possibility for surgical retreatment.
The research was conducted on 114 patients with NSCLC and LR that had initial surgery in two reference institutes in Serbia from January 2002 to December 2010. PT size and disease stage were defined according to the revised 2004 WHO classification.

Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) palsy rates vary from 0.5 to 10%, even 20% in thyroid cancer surgery. The aim of this paper was to present our experience with RLN liberations and reconstructions after various mechanisms of injury.

To evaluate the accuracy of intraoperative frozen section analysis (FSA) of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) mapped using methylene blue dye (MBD) and its usefulness for selecting patients with breast carcinomas and positive axillary lymph nodes (ALNs) for one-time axillary dissection.
152 female patients with T1/T2 breast carcinomas and clinically negative ALNs were selected for mapping using MBD (1%) from October 2010 to December 2011. Patients underwent FSA of mapped SLNs and ALN dissection.

To analyze the correlation of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) primary tumor size, independently, and the initial disease stage with the incidence of local recurrence (LR) and disease-free survival (DFS), as well as the LR operability.
The research was conducted on 114 patients operated due to NSCLC at the Institute for Lung Diseases of the Clinical Center of Serbia and the Institute for Oncology and Radiology of Serbia from January 2002 to December 2010, who developed LR during the 5-year follow-up. Diagnostic methods and surgical approaches were standard, defined by protocols.

The aim of this research was to examine overall (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with colorectal peritoneal carcinomatosis (CRC-PC), treated with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and intraoperative hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), as well as to analyse factors of prognostic significance.
We included 61 patients with pathological/and computerized tomography (CT) confirmation of CRC-PC, treated with CRS+HIPEC from 2005 to 2012. Peritoneal Cancer Index (PCI) score was used for quantitative assessment of the CRC-PC extent.

Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) arising in pyramidal lobe (PL) is very rare. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of single PTC focus in PL and its lymphonodal metastases, as well as to present a single surgeon experience in management of PL PTC. We performed a retrospective analysis of records of all patients surgically treated for PTC in our institution from year 2003 to 2013.
