Abstract

Detection and localization of hypersecreting parathyroid glands is possible in using parathormone radioimmunoassay performed on blood samples obtained after jugular or thyroid vein catheterisation. Neck surgery was performed in 5 patients with suspicion of hyperparathyroidism after those investigations. In 4 parathyroid pathology accorded with the preoperative diagnosis; in one there was a discrepancy. The authors discuss the importance of this technic for the diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism and the localization of hypersecreting glands.
