Cytoplasmic calcium regulation and the electrocardiogram in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism.


Primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is a disease caused by an abnormal cytosolic regulation of calcium concentration [Ca++]i leading to an increased secretion of parathyroid hormone and thereby increased levels of extracellular calcium. It is well known that the QT-interval measured at electrocardiography (ECG) is shortened in HPT subjects. Whether this is… (More)
