Drescher Tilman , Clerici Thomas , Kolb Walter , Brandle Michael , Bilz Stefan

Introduction: Amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) occurs in 5–10% of patients and may occur at any time throughout the course of treatment including months after discontinuation. Two distinct forms of AIT are distinguished and treated differently. Iodine-induced hyperthyroidism, typically seen in patients with underlying thyroid disease, is referred to as typ1 AIT and treated with high doses of thionamide antithyroid drugs and perchlorate. Type 2 AIT is a destructive ...

Background: This study prospectively assessed the sensitivity and positive predictive value (PPV) of ultrasound (US), ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration with PTH measurement in the needle washout (US-FNA) and sestamibi scintigraphy (SS) for the localisation of parathyroid adenomas in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) and features of uniglandular disease.Methods: 51 consecutive patients with pHPT referred for first time surgery with a...

Background: Focused parathyroidectomy has become the standard procedure for patients with sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) fulfilling the criteria for surgical therapy and requires preoperative localization procedures. Ultrasound imaging (US) and 99mTc-sestamibi-scintigraphy with/without SPECT/CT (SC) are established first line procedures. 18F-choline PET/CT (PET) has emerged as a novel sensitive and specific method. However, current reimbursem...
