In the setting of total parathyroidectomy (TPT) and parathyroid transplantation (PTx) for renal hyperparathyroidism (RHP), we evaluated long-term parathyroid graft function after subcutaneous pre-sternal transplantation (SCPTx). Because parathyroid glands are surrounded by fatty tissue, we postulated that results of subcutaneous implantation of parathyroid(More)
In 1957 Rein' and Walder2 described the first cases of systemic sclerosis (SS) after contact with organic solvents. An increasing number of cases have subsequently been reported, the most frequent involving aliphatic hydrocarbons (vinyl chloride, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene),3 and 20 cases related to aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, xylene,(More)
PURPOSE The objectives were (i) construction of a phantom to reproduce the behavior of iron overload in the liver by MRI and (ii) assessment of the variability of a previously validated method to quantify liver iron concentration between different MRI devices using the phantom and patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A phantom reproducing the liver/muscle(More)
BACKGROUND Measuring plasma adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is a key step in the differential diagnosis of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal disorders. METHODS The recently developed electrochemiluminescence Elecsys ACTH immunoassay (Roche Diagnostics, Mannheim, Germany) was evaluated at six clinical laboratories on the Modular E170 and/or the Elecsys(More)
