Mexican doctors used ultrasound machines in surgery for a second time to remove thyroid tumors from patients.
The new procedure, which is part of a series of tests for patients, was performed at a private clinic in the northern state of Tamaulipas.
Tamaulips Health Minister Manuel Diaz said doctors removed thyroid tumors at the clinic and gave the patients injections of the drugs.
In Mexico, doctors often administer surgery-related treatments, such as thyroidectomy or surgery for enlarged thyroid glands.
Mexico has a long history of high rates of thyroid cancer, which have also been linked to obesity and other chronic diseases.
Dr. Jose Luis Hernandez, a cancer expert at the University of the Basque Country, said doctors often use ultrasound machines to remove tumors from the thyroid.
But his work showed that doctors often miss the biggest tumors in the thyroid, Hernandez said.
This time, doctors used ultrasonic technology to remove the biggest tumor from a patient.
I thought it was an awesome way to show the patient, ‘You are not going to live forever,’ Hernandez said in a news release.
There are also concerns that the drug, called Ultralumab, which was originally developed in Japan, could cause side effects.
It has been linked with severe side effects such as seizures and seizures-like symptoms, which are not uncommon with other drugs.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has expressed concern about the potential side effects of Ultrava, saying it has the potential to lead to more deaths and more serious complications.
