BACKGROUND Intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IOPTH) monitoring is well-established in operation for primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). In diseases where total parathyroidectomy (tPx) is a treatment option its reliability to predict postoperative residual parathyroid hormone (PTH) remains in question. METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients with tPx due to secondary autonomous renal (26 patients), familial (8 patients), or lithium-induced (4 patients) HPT were analyzed retrospectively for… CONTINUE READING
