The impact of vitamin D status and tumor size on the intraoperative parathyroid hormone dynamics in patients with symptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism

Abstract

The intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IOPTH) monitoring is a useful adjunct for predicting whether a cure has been obtained during parathyroidectomy. We studied the influence of vitamin D status and parathyroid tumor weight on the IOPTH dynamics for predicting a cure in patients with symptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism. Fifty-nine primary… (More)
