Comparative analysis of the technics of preoperative localization of the parathyroid glands



Comparative analysis of the technics of preoperative localization of the parathyroid glands



Giornale di Clinica Medica 70(12): 743-757



Parathyroid surgery needs an appropriate diagnosis and a preoperative localization. We conducted a prospective study to compare the efficacy of 4 different imaging modalities in 17 patients: thallium-technetium subtraction scintigraphy, ultrasonography, computed tomography and arteriography. The sensitivity was: scintigraphy 58%, echotomography 86%, Tc 92% and arteriography only 33%. Neck exploration confirmed the imaging results. We found 15 cases of adenomas (2 cases of double adenoma) and 1 case of hyperplasia; in 1 patient, no lesions were found. We conclude that the association of such techniques appears to be the optimal strategy in about 100% of the patients.
