OBJECTIVE We determined whether the measurement of hormones in pituitary blood permits correction for dilution by non-pituitary blood during bilateral simultaneous inferior petrosal sinus blood sampling in Cushing's syndrome. DESIGN Bilateral simultaneous inferior petrosal sinus blood sampling was performed after combined hCRF and TRH stimulation. Peak ACTH concentrations were corrected for the TSH and PRL inter-sinus ratio, assuming uniform secretion of both hormones into each inferior… CONTINUE READING
