BackgroundExact tissue identification during parathyroidectomy is essential to successfully cure hyperparathyroidism. PTH level determination from tissue aspirates has been advocated as a “biochemical frozen section” for parathyroid tissue identification. We investigated the sensitivity and specificity of this method in a large cohort of consecutive patients who underwent parathyroidectomy in a tertiary referral center.MethodsPTH levels of 359 tissue aspirates were measured intraoperatively in… CONTINUE READING
