BACKGROUND We hypothesized that impaired peripheral sensitivity to parathyroid hormone (PTH) may play a role in reelevation of PTH after successful operation for primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). METHODS Factors affecting reelevation of PTH were determined in 90 patients who underwent parathyroidectomy for pHPT. PTH/nephrogenous cyclic adenosine monophosphate ratio, as an index of renal resistance to PTH, was examined in relation to factors shown to influence reelevation of PTH. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
