Kotova Irina , Gadzyra Alexander , Alayev Dmitry , Martino Elena

Introduction: Achievement of stable normocalcemia (88–98.8%) is considered a criterium of efficiency of surgical operations for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) (P.Goudet et al. 2001, Zeiger 1997). In 1–15% of cases, persistence of PHPT is noted (Mariani et al. 2003, Mariette et al. 1998).Description of methods: In 110 of 175 patients (aged 14–72 years), parathyroid adenoma was verified, in 57 – hyperplasi...

Kotova Irina , Britvin Timur , Beloshitsky Mikhail , Kalinin Arian

From 1987 to 2008, 226 patients were operated on for primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). In 17 (men and women, aged 21–71 years) of them, parathyroid carcinoma (PC) was verified by histologic analysis. Mixed pHPT form was noted in 12 patients, visceropathic one – in 4, and asymptomatic – in 1. Hypercalcemia was revealed in 14 of 17 patients, and elevation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) level (426–1160 pg/ml) – in 12. In 5 patients operated on before 1990...
