Predictive features associated with thyrotoxic storm and management

Thyrotoxic storm management The pillar of TS management is to treat the hormonal excess excretion starting prematurely all supportive maneuvers.

In the past, thyroid surgery was the most common cause of TS, but recent preoperative medication creates a euthyroid state before performing surgery.

Nowadays, thyroid surgery is the mainly endocrine procedures carried out in the world 5 and the hyperactivity of thyroid tissue after sub-total thyroidectomy is the primarily aetiology of perioperative TS.

All authors; VII Final approval of manuscript: Critical Actions Iodine therapy should be administered at least 1 hour AFTER thionamides to prevent stimulation of new thyroid hormone synthesis Avoid aspirin because it displaces T4 from thyroid binding globulin, resulting in increase of free T4. Inorganic iodide inhibiting iodide oxidation and organification the Wolff-Chaikoff effect. The intraoperative approach recently published 18 appears the finest method to treat this disorder.

Infections, with fever onset, could manifest TS 2 and a precocious antibiotic therapy has bugch be applied on patients with suspected thyroid disease before sepsis signs are evident Socre Chir Scand ; High mortality associated with missed diagnosis. The major challenges of an intraoperative TS onset are due to several conditions that could mimic a cardiovascular collapse with thermoregulatory signs such as pain, wsrtofsky disturbances, malignant hyperthermia, heart failure and anaphylactic bkrch 7.

In this setting, respiratory management should include non-invasive positive pressure ventilation NIPPVor tracheal intubation according to neurologic, pulmonary and cardiac functional status. Thyroid storm during thyroidectomy of the thyrotoxicosis patient.

Additionally, pregnancy and post-partum period are triggering factors to develop TS due to redefinition of autoimmunity state 4. The principal drugs to treat supraventricular arrhythmias are endovenous landiolol and esmolol.
