Justified Follow-Up: A Final Intraoperative Parathyroid Hormone (ioPTH) Over 40 pg/mL is Associated with an Increased Risk of Persistence and Recurrence in Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Academic Article


  • Introduction: After parathyroidectomy for sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), overall rates of persistence/recurrence are extremely low. A marker of increased risk for persistence/recurrence is needed. We hypothesized that final intraoperative parathyroid hormone (FioPTH) ≥40 pg/mL is indicative of increased risk for disease persistence/recurrence, and can be used to selectively determine the degree of follow-up.
