Intra-operative parathyroid hormone monitoring using a laboratory based multichannel analyser

, : Intra-operative parathyroid hormone monitoring using a laboratory based multichannel analyser. Clinical Otolaryngology 33(2): 134-137

Parathyroid hormone has a short half life in vivo. Intraoperative parathyroid hormone measurement can guide the surgeon by confirming successful removal of parathyroid adenomas. Point of care testing with a dedicated analyser and technician in theatre is expensive. This study shows that intraoperative parathyroid hormone is feasible using a central laboratory based analyser available in most hospitals. There are potential cost savings when compared with point of care testing.
