We conducted this meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of parathyroid gland autotransplantation in preserving parathyroid function during thyroid surgery for thyroid neoplasms.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: PloS one
Meticulous capsular dissection can preserve the function of the parathyroid gland in most patients, but it is difficult to identify and preserve the subcapsular parathyroid gland. We performed in-situ...
Parathyroid glands are difficult to identify during total thyroidectomies and accidental resection can lead to problematic post-operative hypocalcemia. Our main goals were to evaluate the effectivenes...
Preservation of parathyroid function is one of the primary tenets of endocrine surgery. For patients with thyroid disease, an inadvertently compromised parathyroid gland is routinely auto transplanted...
The inability to identify the pathological gland at surgery results in failure to cure hyperparathyroidism in 2-5%. The poorly understood characteristic of parathyroid tissue to manifest autofluoresce...
Cinacalcet, an allosteric modulator of the calcium (Ca) sensing receptor, reduces the level of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in serum as well as parathyroid gland volume following administration in hemodi...
Identification and localization of pathological parathyroid gland before parathyroidectomy is traditionally done by a combination of two methods: ultrasound and sestamibi scan. The investi...
To study the protective effect of suture parathyroid marker method on the function of parathyroid gland in thyroid cancer surgery
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and effectiveness of normal parathyroid tissue reimplantation in forearm subcutaneous tissue in case of accidental removal of parathyroid gl...
Objectives: 1. To better define the differences in molecular genetics of parathyroid tumors in patients with MEN1, single gland parathyroid disease in patients less than 50 years o...
This clinical trial studies the omission of intact parathyroid hormone testing during surgery in treating patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Omission of intact parathyroid hormone ...
A naphthalene derivative and CALCIMIMETIC AGENT that increases the sensitivity of PARATHYROID GLAND calcium-sensing receptors to serum calcium. This action reduces parathyroid hormone secretion and decreases serum calcium in the treatment of PARATHYROID DISEASES.
Pathological processes of the PARATHYROID GLANDS. They usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PARATHYROID HORMONE that regulates the balance of CALCIUM; PHOSPHORUS; and MAGNESIUM in the body.
A parathyroid hormone receptor subtype that recognizes both PARATHYROID HORMONE and PARATHYROID HORMONE-RELATED PROTEIN. It is a G-protein-coupled receptor that is expressed at high levels in BONE and in KIDNEY.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE due to parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. It is characterized by the combination of HYPERCALCEMIA, phosphaturia, elevated renal 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis, and increased BONE RESORPTION.
Two pairs of small oval-shaped glands located in the front and the base of the NECK and adjacent to the two lobes of THYROID GLAND. They secrete PARATHYROID HORMONE that regulates the balance of CALCIUM; PHOSPHORUS; and MAGNESIUM in the body.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
