Dr.Guttler’s Patient Thyroid Blog Post: Does BRAF V600E mutation effect the outcomes of 1-1.5 cm papillary cancers?

S.Silver et al Nov. 2021 J.of Otolaryngology.

Dr.Guttler’s Comments:

  1. BRAF mutations are found in 40% of small cancer.

  2. 50%-80 %  had aggressive features at surgery.

  3. 20-29% without BRAF mutation had aggrssive features at surgery.

  4. Prior to use of active surveillance or radiofrequency ablation the determination of BRAF could help guide management.

  5. We can use microdissection on the biopsy slides to determine BRAF before deciding on RFA treatment.
