Pancreatic arterial calcium stimulation in the diagnosis and localisation of persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia of infancy

Abstract

Persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia of infancy (PHHI) is often resistant to medical therapy. Surgery is therefore necessary. It is due to focal adenomatous islet-cell hyperplasia treatable by partial pancreatectomy, or diffuse beta-cell hyperfunction, which requires near-total pancreatectomy. Pancreatic venous sampling (PVS) is the reference technique… (More)
