Novel approaches for diagnosis and management of endocrine tumors and neck injuries

Research Fields:

Previous and Current Research

Research Group members: Maksym Gorobeiko, Andrii Dinets, Yuryy Prylutskyy, Victoria Hoperia

Our Research group is focused on studies of diagnostic and prognostic markers for thyroid cancer, benign thyroid and parathyroid lesions as well as development and implementation of modern surgical tools for the operations on the neck for endocrine tumors and for patients with combat (gunshot) trauma.

The research group have an experience in studies
of diagnostic molecular biomarkers for thyroid cancer and primary
hyperparathyroidism, developing a protocol for detecting parathyroid glands and
the recurrent laryngeal nerve by the detection of near-infrared fluorescence in
target organs (fluorescence-guided surgery) as well as investigations of neuromonitoring
for detection of peripheral nerves in the neck area.

Research Activity

  • Since 2003 representative expert from Ukraine in the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot by International Diabetic Federation (now - DFoot since 2018) . The Ministry of Public Health approved Consensus on the Diabetic Foot and Practical Guidelines in 2004.

  • Co-author of the National Programme of Endocrinology (chapters Diabetic Foot, Prevention of complications of Diabetes, Thyroid cancer).

  • According to the Programme it was created 3-level system of Diabetic Foot Service in Ukraine with first-priority development of first (prophylactic) level Diabetic Foot clinic. Implanted in full volume in the Centre of Endocrine surgery. Awarded by State Award (Medal and Diploma from the Parlament) for this study.

  • PI of specially-created postgraduate course for treatment Diabetic Foot for physicians (licensed by Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Education and Science) 2009 - 2018

  • Member or executive director of Organising Committee) of national and international congresses in Ukraine and Postgraduate Courses (ETA, EASD).

  • Co-founder of Ukrainian Association of Endocrine Surgery

Future Projects and Goals

To perform our studies, authors have collected unique cohort of the patients and postoperative specimens of resected tumors of thyroid and parathyroid glands. These tissue samples are ready for the molecular genetics, immunohistochemical and pathological examination.

Authors have planned prospective study to investigate the role of fluorescent-guided surgery in case of operation in the neck area for patients with benign and malignant thyroid and parathyroid diseases, repeat surgical interventions in that area as well as neck surgery after the injury due to application of high-energy weapon.
