Abstract

The authors conclude that PTH radioimmunoassay on venous selective and superselective samples is a technique which brings an important contribution to the preoperative diagnosis of the nature and location of hyperparathyroid lesions in comparison to the other methods of diagnosis (radioactive Se75-seleniomethionine scan, ecotomography, pneumomediastinum, thyroid lymphography, arteriography). It gives the advantage of a greater safety and of complete harmlessness. Just for these characteristics we believe it could be applied to all PHP suspected or diagnosed cases contrary to arteriography, that should be reserved for only the cases of reoperative surgery.
