Hyperparathyroidism: A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES.Parathyroid Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PARATHYROID GLANDS.Hyperparathyroidism, Secondary: Abnormally elevated PARATHYROID HORMONE secretion as a response to HYPOCALCEMIA. It is caused by chronic KIDNEY FAILURE or other abnormalities in the controls of bone and mineral metabolism, leading to various BONE DISEASES, such as RENAL OSTEODYSTROPHY.Hyperparathyroidism, Primary: 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.Calcitriol: The physiologically active form of vitamin D. It is formed primarily in the kidney by enzymatic hydroxylation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Its production is stimulated by low blood calcium levels and parathyroid hormone. Calcitriol increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and in concert with parathyroid hormone increases bone resorption.Parathyroidectomy: Excision of one or more of the parathyroid glands.Parathyroid Glands: 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.Parathyroid Hormone: A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body. Parathyroid hormone increases intracellular calcium by promoting the release of CALCIUM from BONE, increases the intestinal absorption of calcium, increases the renal tubular reabsorption of calcium, and increases the renal excretion of phosphates.Hypercalcemia: Abnormally high level of calcium in the blood.Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica: A fibrous degeneration, cyst formation, and the presence of fibrous nodules in bone, usually due to HYPERPARATHYROIDISM.Calcimimetic Agents: Small organic molecules that act as allosteric activators of the calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) in the PARATHYROID GLANDS and other tissues. They lower the threshold for CaSR activation by extracellular calcium ions and diminish PARATHYROID HORMONE (PTH) release from parathyroid cells.Receptors, Calcitriol: Proteins, usually found in the cytoplasm, that specifically bind calcitriol, migrate to the nucleus, and regulate transcription of specific segments of DNA with the participation of D receptor interacting proteins (called DRIP). Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidney to calcitriol and ultimately acts through these receptors.Adenoma: A benign epithelial tumor with a glandular organization.Hypocalcemia: Reduction of the blood calcium below normal. Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm. (Dorland, 27th ed)Phosphorus: A non-metal element that has the atomic symbol P, atomic number 15, and atomic weight 31. It is an essential element that takes part in a broad variety of biochemical reactions.Calcium Signaling: Signal transduction mechanisms whereby calcium mobilization (from outside the cell or from intracellular storage pools) to the cytoplasm is triggered by external stimuli. Calcium signals are often seen to propagate as waves, oscillations, spikes, sparks, or puffs. The calcium acts as an intracellular messenger by activating calcium-responsive proteins.Calcium Channel Agonists: Agents that increase calcium influx into calcium channels of excitable tissues. This causes vasoconstriction in VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE and/or CARDIAC MUSCLE cells as well as stimulation of insulin release from pancreatic islets. Therefore, tissue-selective calcium agonists have the potential to combat cardiac failure and endocrinological disorders. They have been used primarily in experimental studies in cell and tissue culture.Receptors, Calcium-Sensing: A class of G-protein-coupled receptors that react to varying extracellular CALCIUM levels. Calcium-sensing receptors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS play an important role in the maintenance of calcium HOMEOSTASIS by regulating the release of PARATHYROID HORMONE. They differ from INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM-SENSING PROTEINS which sense intracellular calcium levels.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.Renal Osteodystrophy: Decalcification of bone or abnormal bone development due to chronic KIDNEY DISEASES, in which 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis by the kidneys is impaired, leading to reduced negative feedback on PARATHYROID HORMONE. The resulting SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM eventually leads to bone disorders.Ergocalciferols: Derivatives of ERGOSTEROL formed by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS breaking of the C9-C10 bond. They differ from CHOLECALCIFEROL in having a double bond between C22 and C23 and a methyl group at C24.Calcium: A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.Calcium Carbonate: Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.Calcium, Dietary: Calcium compounds used as food supplements or in food to supply the body with calcium. Dietary calcium is needed during growth for bone development and for maintenance of skeletal integrity later in life to prevent osteoporosis.Naphthalenes: Two-ring crystalline hydrocarbons isolated from coal tar.

It can also be viewed as a hormone since it can be formed in SKIN by action of ULTRAVIOLET RAYS upon the precursors, 7-dehydrocholesterol and ERGOSTEROL, and acts on VITAMIN D RECEPTORS to regulate CALCIUM in opposition to PARATHYROID HORMONE.Uremia: A clinical syndrome associated with the retention of renal waste products or uremic toxins in the blood. It is usually the result of RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. Most uremic toxins are end products of protein or nitrogen CATABOLISM, such as UREA or CREATININE. Severe uremia can lead to multiple organ dysfunctions with a constellation of symptoms.Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1: A form of multiple endocrine neoplasia that is characterized by the combined occurrence of tumors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, and the PANCREATIC ISLETS. The resulting clinical signs include HYPERPARATHYROIDISM; HYPERCALCEMIA; HYPERPROLACTINEMIA; CUSHING DISEASE; GASTRINOMA; and ZOLLINGER-ELLISON SYNDROME. This disease is due to loss-of-function of the MEN1 gene, a tumor suppressor gene (GENES, TUMOR SUPPRESSOR) on CHROMOSOME 11 (Locus: 11q13).Kidney Failure, Chronic: The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.Phosphates: Inorganic salts of phosphoric acid.Hypoparathyroidism: A condition caused by a deficiency of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH). It is characterized by HYPOCALCEMIA and hyperphosphatemia. Hypocalcemia leads to TETANY. The acquired form is due to removal or injuries to the PARATHYROID GLANDS. The congenital form is due to mutations of genes, such as TBX1; (see DIGEORGE SYNDROME); CASR encoding CALCIUM-SENSING RECEPTOR; or PTH encoding parathyroid hormone.Calcium Channels: Voltage-dependent cell membrane glycoproteins selectively permeable to calcium ions. They are categorized as L-, T-, N-, P-, Q-, and R-types based on the activation and inactivation kinetics, ion specificity, and sensitivity to drugs and toxins. The L- and T-types are present throughout the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and the N-, P-, Q-, & R-types are located in neuronal tissue.Calcium Gluconate: The calcium salt of gluconic acid. The compound has a variety of uses, including its use as a calcium replenisher in hypocalcemic states.Renal Dialysis: Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.Technetium Tc 99m Sestamibi: A technetium imaging agent used to reveal blood-starved cardiac tissue during a heart attack.Osteomalacia: Disorder caused by an interruption of the mineralization of organic bone matrix leading to bone softening, bone pain, and weakness. It is the adult form of rickets resulting from disruption of VITAMIN D; PHOSPHORUS; or CALCIUM homeostasis.Hyperplasia: An increase in the number of cells in a tissue or organ without tumor formation. It differs from HYPERTROPHY, which is an increase in bulk without an increase in the number of cells.Bone and Bones: A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.Bone Diseases: Diseases of BONES.Alkaline Phosphatase: An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of an orthophosphoric monoester and water to an alcohol and orthophosphate. EC 3.1.3.1.Vitamin D Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)Vitamins: Organic substances that are required in small amounts for maintenance and growth, but which cannot be manufactured by the human body.Hydroxycholecalciferols: Hydroxy analogs of vitamin D 3; (CHOLECALCIFEROL); including CALCIFEDIOL; CALCITRIOL; and 24,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D 3.Hyperphosphatemia: A condition of abnormally high level of PHOSPHATES in the blood, usually significantly above the normal range of 0.84-1.58 mmol per liter of serum.Bone Diseases, MetabolicBone Demineralization, Pathologic: Decrease, loss, or removal of the mineral constituents of bones. Temporary loss of bone mineral content is especially associated with space flight, weightlessness, and extended immobilization. OSTEOPOROSIS is permanent, includes reduction of total bone mass, and is associated with increased rate of fractures. CALCIFICATION, PHYSIOLOGIC is the process of bone remineralizing. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed; Nicogossian, Space Physiology and Medicine, 2d ed, pp327-33)Hypophosphatemia: A condition of an abnormally low level of PHOSPHATES in the blood.Choristoma: A mass of histologically normal tissue present in an abnormal location.Calcinosis: Pathologic deposition of calcium salts in tissues.Calcium Metabolism Disorders: Disorders in the processing of calcium in the body: its absorption, transport, storage, and utilization.Bone Density: The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.Paraneoplastic Endocrine Syndromes: Syndromes resulting from inappropriate production of HORMONES or hormone-like materials by NEOPLASMS in non-endocrine tissues or not by the usual ENDOCRINE GLANDS. Such hormone outputs are called ectopic hormone (HORMONES, ECTOPIC) secretion.Calcifediol: The major circulating metabolite of VITAMIN D3. It is produced in the LIVER and is the best indicator of the body's vitamin D stores. It is effective in the treatment of RICKETS and OSTEOMALACIA, both in azotemic and non-azotemic patients. Calcifediol also has mineralizing properties.Phosphorus, Dietary: Phosphorus used in foods or obtained from food. This element is a major intracellular component which plays an important role in many biochemical pathways relating to normal physiological functions. High concentrations of dietary phosphorus can cause nephrocalcinosis which is associated with impaired kidney function. Low concentrations of dietary phosphorus cause an increase in calcitriol in the blood and osteoporosis.Phosphorus Metabolism Disorders: Disorders in the processing of phosphorus in the body: its absorption, transport, storage, and utilization.Kidney Calculi: Stones in the KIDNEY, usually formed in the urine-collecting area of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS). Their sizes vary and most contains CALCIUM OXALATE.Calciphylaxis: Condition of induced systemic hypersensitivity in which tissues respond to appropriate challenging agents with a sudden local calcification.Cholecalciferol: Derivative of 7-dehydroxycholesterol formed by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS breaking of the C9-C10 bond. It differs from ERGOCALCIFEROL in having a single bond between C22 and C23 and lacking a methyl group at C24.Calcium Phosphates: Calcium salts of phosphoric acid. These compounds are frequently used as calcium supplements.Bone Resorption: Bone loss due to osteoclastic activity.Calcium Isotopes: Stable calcium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element calcium, but differ in atomic weight. Ca-42-44, 46, and 48 are stable calcium isotopes.Thyroidectomy: Surgical removal of the thyroid gland. (Dorland, 28th ed)Bone Density Conservation Agents: Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION.

A parathyroid adenoma is a benign tumor of the parathyroid gland. It generally causes hyperparathyroidism; there are very few reports of parathyroid adenomas that were not associated with hyperparathyroidism. A human being usually has four parathyroid glands located on the back surface of the thyroid in the neck. The parathyroids secrete parathyroid hormone (PTH), which increases the concentration of calcium in the blood by inducing the bones to release calcium into the blood and the kidneys to reabsorb it from the urine into the blood. When a parathyroid adenoma causes hyperparathyroidism, more parathyroid hormone is secreted, causing the calcium concentration of the blood to rise, resulting in hypercalcemia. The first signs of a parathyroid adenoma and the resulting primary hyperparathyroidism can include bone fractures and urinary calculi such as kidney stones. Oftentimes parathyroid ...
1-3 It accounted for 0.005% of all cancers in the National Cancer Database from 1985 to 1995.4 A review of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) cancer registry identifying patients with parathyroid carcinoma from 1988 to 2003 in the United States demonstrated a 60% rise in incidence of parathyroid carcinoma from 3.58 to 5.73 per 10 million.2 A review of the European Cancer registry from 1995 to 2002 demonstrated an incidence of 0.02% per 10 million among 27 European countries, emphasizing the rarity of this cancer.5 Approximately 1% of hyperparathyroidism is attributed to parathyroid carcinoma, and retrospective studies have demonstrated an even distribution between men and women.4 Benign parathyroid disease has a female predominance (3-4:1), occurring a decade later than parathyroid carcinoma which usually manifests at an average age of 48 years.1,3,6 Parathyroid carcinoma rarely occurs in children.7,8 ...
Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare endocrine malignancy with an estimated incidence of less than 1 per million population. Excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone, extremely high serum calcium level, and the deleterious effects of hypercalcaemia are the clinical manifestations of the disease. Up to 60% of patients develop multiple disease recurrences and although long-term survival is possible with palliative surgery, permanent remission is rarely achieved. Molecular drivers of sporadic parathyroid carcinoma have remained largely unknown. Previous studies, mostly based on familial cases of the disease, suggested potential roles for the tumour suppressor MEN1 and proto-oncogene RET in benign parathyroid tumourigenesis, while the tumour suppressor HRPT2 and proto-oncogene CCND1 may also act as drivers in parathyroid cancer. Here, we report the complete genomic analysis of a sporadic and recurring parathyroid carcinoma. Mutational landscapes of the primary and recurrent tumour ...
Few risk factors have been identified for parathyroid cancer. Hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor (HPT-JT) syndrome is a familial condition with an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance caused by an inactivating mutation of the tumor suppressor gene HRPT2. The HRPT2 gene is located on chromosome 1q, codes for the nuclear protein parafibromin, and is thought to be involved in cell growth cycle regulation.7,8 Affected HPT-JT family members develop PHPT secondary to parathyroid adenomas, fibro-osseous tumors of the mandible and maxilla, renal hamartomas, renal stromal cell tumors, and cystic disease of the kidneys.8 Patients with HPT-JT have a markedly increased risk of parathyroid cancer, which is seen in 10% to 17% of patients.7,8 The HRPT2 gene is also involved in the pathogenesis of sporadically occurring cases of parathyroid cancer, with somatic mutation of this gene identified in 67% of parathyroid cancers and germline mutations identified in 20% of patients with ...
Neonatal primary hyperparathyroidism is a life threatening disorder that is associated with severe hypercalcaemia, hypotonia, bone demineralization, fractures and respiratory distress. Treatment consists of total parathyroidectomy and without this affected infants will usually die by the age of three months. We report a patient with neonatal primary hyperparathyroidism who survived without fractures or parathyroidectomy to an age of nine months, and in whom the hypercalcaemia became masked by vitamin D deficiency. At surgery, four-gland hyperplasia was demonstrated and total parathyroidectomy followed by oral calcitriol treatment has restored well-being and normocalcaemia. An absence of skeletal complications, a survival beyond three months of age without parathyroidectomy and the masking of the hypercalcaemia by vitamin D deficiency represents a unique combination of metabolic abnormalities in a patient with neonatal primary ...
Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare disease leading to severe hypercalcemia due to hyperparathyroidism. Surgery is the primary treatment option. A more progressive form of the disease is characterized by parathyrotoxicosis, and subsequent hypercalcemia is the most common cause of death. We report a case presenting with severe hypercalcemia due to parathyrotoxicosis from parathyroid carcinoma treated for the first time using the monoclonal antibody denosumab as a rescue therapy and present long-term follow-up data. The 71-year-old patient presented with severe hypercalcemia due to metastatic parathyroid carcinoma. Despite undergoing treatment with bisphosphonates, cinacalcet hydrochloride, and forced diuresis, the patient`s condition deteriorated rapidly due to resistant hypercalcemia. Surgery performed because of spinal metastasis and forced diuresis lowered calcium levels, albeit they remained in the hypercalcemic range and significantly increased when forced diuresis was ...

This is a research study to investigate cardiovascular health in people with mild hyperparathyroidism. Previous research has suggested that severe hyperparathyroidism may be associated with abnormalities in the heart and blood vessels. It is unclear whether mild hyperparathyroidism affects cardiovascular health. This study involves the investigation of the heart and blood vessels of people with mild hyperparathyroidism. Various non-invasive laboratory and radiological test to assess cardiovascular and bone health will be done at set intervals over the course of 2 years. It is our hypothesis that patients with primary hyperparathyroidism will have subtle abnormalities in their cardiovascular system. Using state-of-the art techniques that are sufficiently sensitive to detect these subtle abnormalities, we will define cardiovascular features of this disease that have, up to now, eluded clear definition. We expect taht the ...
Hyperparathyroidism is an increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels in the blood. This occurs either from the parathyroid glands inappropriately making too much PTH (primary hyperparathyroidism) or other events triggering increased production by the parathyroid glands (secondary hyperparathyroidism). Most people with primary disease have no symptoms at the time of diagnosis. In those with symptoms the most common is kidney stones with other potential symptoms including weakness, depression, bone pains, confusion, and increased urination. Both types increase the risk of weak bones. Primary hyperparathyroidism in 80% of cases is due to a single benign tumor known as a parathyroid adenoma with most of the rest of the cases due to a multiple benign tumors. Rarely it may be due to parathyroid cancer. Secondary hyperparathyroidism typically occurs due to vitamin D deficiency, chronic kidney disease, or other causes of low blood ...
Parathyroid cysts are rare (0.8-3.41% of all parathyroid lesions) and usually arise secondary to cystic degeneration of parathyroid adenomas. Intrathyroidal parathyroid cysts are extremely rare with only three cases reported till date. We present a 24-year-old female with clinical and biochemical features of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT; Ca2 +: 12.1 mg/dl; intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH): 1283 pg/ml) and poor radiotracer uptake with minimal residual uptake in the left thyroid lobe at 2 and 4 h on Tc99m sestamibi imaging. Neck ultrasonography (USG) revealed 0.6×1 cm parathyroid posterior left lobe of thyroid along with 22×18 mm simple thyroid cyst. USG-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and needle tip iPTH estimation (FNA-iPTH) from parathyroid lesion was inconclusive (114 pg/ml), necessitating FNA of thyroid cyst, which revealed high iPTH (3480 pg/ml) from the aspirate. The patient underwent a left hemithyroidectomy. A ,50% drop in serum iPTH 20 min after left hemithyroidectomy (29.4 ...

Background. Cinacalcet, a calcimimetic agent, is effective in treating both primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Because hyperparathyroidism induces mineralized bone loss, we investigated the effects of cinacalcet treatment on bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism due to chronic kidney disease.. Methods. Ten patients who were receiving haemodialysis and four patients, who had stage 4 chronic kidney disease participated and completed the multicentre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of cinacalcet for treating secondary hyperparathyroidism. The efficacy of cinacalcet was assessed by plasma intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) levels. A dual energy X-ray absorptiometry was performed to measure the BMD of total proximal femurs and lumbar spine (L2-L4) before and after 26 weeks of treatment.. Results. Cinacalcet reduced iPTH from 912±296 to 515±359 pg/ml ...
2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.The parathyroid glands in dogs and cats are tan-colored ovoid structures closely associated with each thyroid gland. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) release is controlled by calcium receptors on the chief cells in the parathyroid glands in response to hypocalcemia. PTH has a short half-life (3-5 min) in serum and so a steady rate of secretion is necessary to maintain serum PTH concentrations. Natural variations in PTH concentration occur in healthy dogs. Exploratory surgery with parathyroidectomy in dogs with primary hyperparathyroidism serves as both a diagnostic test and definitive therapy. Surgery should be advocated to reduce the risk of urolithiasis and urinary tract infection, as well as improving the clinical signs seen with hypercalcemia such as polydipsia, polyuria, weakness, and decreased appetite. Surgical excision alone is the most widely performed treatment for primary hyperparathyroidism and a cure rate of 94% is reported ...
A parathyroid tumor is a growth inside a parathyroid gland. The parathyroid glands are four small glands located in the neck near the thyroid gland. They are part of the endocrine system that regulates hormones in the body. The parathyroid glands make parathyroid hormone that regulates the levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood. Parathyroid tumors may cause increased levels of parathyroid hormones, leading to increased levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia). Most parathyroid tumors are benign (noncancerous) adenomas. Cancers of the parathyroid are very rare.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pathophysiology of primary hyperparathyroidism. AU - Spiegel, Allen M.. PY - 1991/10. Y1 - 1991/10. N2 - Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is characterized by hypersecretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) leading to hypercalcemia and relative hypophosphatemia. PTH acts by binding to cell surface receptors coupled to G proteins. Cyclic AMP is the classic second messenger of PTH action, but substantial evidence indicates that PTH also acts to stimulate formation of the dual second messengers, inositol trisphosphate and diacylglycerol, thereby mobilizing intracellular calcium. The physiologic actions of PTH include (1) an increase in extracellular fluid ionized calcium through direct actions on kidney and bone, the classic target organs for PTH, and (2) a decrease in extracellular fluid phosphate primarily through renal action. The pathophysiologic effects of PTH arise from (1) direct actions of PTH on bone and kidney, and ...

The objective of the study is to report a case of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypercalcemia induced by primary hyperparathyroidism in a pregnant woman at the end of the first trimester. The case included a 32-year-old woman who was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and severe hypercalcemia refractory to many regimens of medical therapy in the first trimester of pregnancy. She was successfully treated with parathyroidectomy in the early second trimester with complete resolution of hypercalcemia and pancreatitis. Neonatal course was unremarkable. To our best knowledge, this is a rare case when primary hyperparathyroidism and its complications are diagnosed in the first trimester of pregnancy. In conclusion, primary hyperparathyroidism is a rare life-threatening condition to the fetus and mother especially when associated with complications such as pancreatitis. Early therapeutic intervention is important to reduce the morbidity and mortality. ...

Long-term stimulation of the parathyroid gland typically results in symmetric hypertrophy of the four glands. Renal Osteodystrophy refers to pathological changes in bone that occur in the context of chronic renal failure due to secondary hyperparathyroidism. The morphology of renal osteodystrophy is similar, but slightly milder, than the "Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica" characteristic of primary hyperparathyroidism. Like primary hyperparathyroidism, bone pathology leads to increases in bone fractures ...

Chronic renal failure is almost always associated with secondary uraemic hyperparathyroidism. Action should be taken as early as possible to avoid it or reduce its severity in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Over the last decade, the most effective way of achieving this has been defined as therapy with active vitamin D derivatives. However, the so‐called non‐hypercalcaemic vitamin D derivatives, which are said to be superior, have not met our expectations so far. In contrast, calcimimetic agents, the new class of compounds that act specifically on the calcium‐sensing receptor, are very promising for the treatment and prevention of hyperparathyroidism. CKD is associated with disturbances in calcium, phosphate, and vitamin D metabolism that occur early in the course of renal disease. In most patients, these disturbances lead to secondary hyperparathyroidism and osteitis fibrosa or associated, more complex, skeletal ...
Hyperparathyroidism is defined as proliferation of the parathyroid hormone (PTH)-secreting cells, or chief cells, in one or more of the 4 parathyroid glands (see the image below).{file43341}Hyperparathyroidism may be caused by genetic mutations (as in primary hyperparathyroidism), various underlying conditions that produce secondary hyperpara...
Studies of calcium kinetics have been carried out in 31 cases of primary hyperparathyroidism and 25 cases of normocalcemic idiopathic renal calculus, using 47Ca or stable strontium.. An increased bone uptake of tracer was found in 24 of the 31 cases of hyperparathyroidism and in 7 of the 25 cases with idiopathic calculus. The studies were abnormal in 7 out of 9 cases of hyperparathyroidism in which diagnosis proved difficult by more conventional testing.. In those cases of normocalcemic renal stone having accelerated skeletal kinetics, a significant correlation was found between the rate of bone turnover and an increased phosphaturia, ...

Results Over the 35-year study period (1980-2014), there were 31 patients who underwent parathyroidectomy for PHPT. 3 patients were from known multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 syndrome (MEN1) families, 3 had an isolated family history of PHPT and 25 were sporadic. In the sporadic group, 24 (96%) presented with symptomatic hypercalcaemia, affecting the gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, genitourinary or neuropsychiatric systems. In the 25 patients with sporadic PHPT, nine (36%) had FP with a single adenoma removed with a 100% initial cure rate. Sixteen patients (64%) in the sporadic group had an open exploration: 14 had single gland disease while 2 patients required a second procedure to achieve a final cure rate of 100%. Of the three patients with MEN1, one was cured, one has persistent hyperparathyroidism after FP and the third has permanent hypoparathyroidism after open exploration.. ...
Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a condition in which a disease outside of the parathyroid glands causes all of the parathyroid glands to become enlarged and hyperactive. The most common causes of secondary hyperparathyroidism are kidney failure and vitamin D deficiency. In kidney failure, the kidney is no longer able to make enough vitamin D or remove all of the phosphorus that is made by the body, which leads to low calcium levels. These low calcium levels stimulate the parathyroid glands to make more PTH.
Background: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a common endocrine disorder with increasing prevalence, but the majority of cases (over 85%) are now perceived to be mild and remain untreated. Objectives: The main focus of this thesis is to provide an accurate update of the epidemiology of PHPT based on population data, and to investigate its long-term outcomes in the mild subgroup compared with those with severe disease. Design: A large retrospective cohort study using routinely collected data in Tayside, Scotland, 1997-2006. Results: The prevalence of PHPT is increasing annually during the study period with an unexpected cyclic incidence. Although most of the patients do not progress in the long-term, patients with mild untreated PHPT have an increased risk of mortality and of developing co-morbidities; the risks are similar in those with a severe PHPT condition. Parathyroid hormone predicts both disease progression and associated adverse outcomes in untreated patients. Parathyroidectomy ...

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), a disease characterized by excess parathyroid hormone (PTH) and high blood calcium, is one of the most common endocrine disorders.. PHPT is seen most often in post-menopausal women. Kidney stones and bone deformities were prominent manifestations of the disease in the past, however, PHPT is now primarily asymptomatic due to incidental detection of high blood calcium levels.. Many patients with PHPT, however, have low bone mineral density (BMD) when bone mass is measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), primarily at the forearm.. There is no effective medical therapy which increases bone density at the forearm in patients with PHPT. PTH both builds and breaks down bone, and the pathways by which PTH mediates these actions are beginning to be identified. Prior research suggests that mechanical loading shifts PTH towards building bone. Arm exercise is an attractive option for the treatment of low forearm BMD in ...
Background: Genetic mutations and upregulation of growth factors are implicated in the pathogenesis of hyperparathyroidism. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of Wilms tumour suppressor gene (WT-1) and the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) axis in hyperparathyroidism. Methods: The expression of WT-1 and IGF components was examined by immunohistochemistry, reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and western immunoblotting in a panel of parathyroid specimens from both primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism. A human parathyroid cell culture model was established to examine the parathyroid response to IGF stimulation. Results: There was a significantly lower level of WT-1 expression in parathyroid tumours than in normal parathyroid glands. Most tumours expressed IGF-I and IGF-II receptors and responded to IGF stimulation. Only IGF-I was present in normal parathyroid glands, whereas IGF-II was expressed exclusively in parathyroid tumours. ...
Epidemiology: Primary hyperparathyroidism occurs in about 0.1% of the population, most commonly begins in the third to fifth decades of life, and occurs two to three times more frequently in women than men.. Etiology: Primary hyperparathyroidism usually results from enlargement of a single gland, commonly an adenoma and very rarely a carcinoma. Hypercalcemia almost always develops.. Important Facts: The normal total serum calcium level is 8.6 to 10.4 mg/dL, as measured in most laboratories. Fifty percent to 60% is bound to plasma proteins or is complexed with phosphate or citrate. The value is dependent on the albumin level, with a decline of 0.8 mg/dL for each 1-g/dL drop in albumin. Binding of calcium to albumin is dependent on pH: binding decreases with acidic pH and increases with alkaline pH. It should be noted that serum calcium and not ionized calcium decreases with decreases in albumin levels. PTH ...

To report a new mutation of the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) gene in an Italian kindred.The study included the female proband, aged 50 years, affected by primary hyperparathyroidism, insulinoma and prolactinoma, and ten relatives. Blood samples were obtained for biochemical and genetic analyses. Clinical screening tests included serum glucose, ionized calcium, intact parathyroid hormone, GH, insulin and prolactin. The coding sequence, including nine coding exons and 16 splice sites, was amplified by PCR and directly sequenced.Two additional cases of primary hyperparathyroidism were identified among the paternal family members. The sequence analysis showed a heterozygous T to C transition at codon 444 in exon 9, resulting in a leucine to proline substitution (L444P) in the patient and in the two paternal family members with primary hyperparathyroidism. The L444P amino acid change was absent in 50 normal subjects. The mutation ...

The renal function gradually deteriorated. Chronic atrophic gastritis with vitamin B12 deficiency and chronic duodenitis with diminished disaccharidase activity in the mucosa were also diagnosed. From 1985, repeated multiple fractures of the ribs occurred, with secondary hyperparathyroidism in the background. The renal and intestinal involvement suggests that, besides the elevated parathyroid hormone level, an acquired vitamin D deficiency plays a pathogenetic role in severe ...
The objective of the study is to report a case of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypercalcemia induced by primary hyperparathyroidism in a pregnant woman at the end of the first trimester. The case included a 32-year-old woman who was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and severe hypercalcemia refractory to many regimens of medical therapy in the first trimester of pregnancy. She was successfully treated with parathyroidectomy in the early second trimester with complete resolution of hypercalcemia and pancreatitis. Neonatal course was unremarkable. To our best knowledge, this is a rare case when primary hyperparathyroidism and its complications are diagnosed in the first trimester of pregnancy. In conclusion, primary hyperparathyroidism is a rare life-threatening condition to the fetus and mother especially when associated with complications such as pancreatitis. Early therapeutic intervention is important to reduce the morbidity and mortality. ...
Thirty two patients with primary hyperparathyroidism were followed up medically for a mean of 4.2 years. One patient had an operation because of a rise in plasma calcium concentration. There was no significant change in the mean plasma calcium and creatinine concentrations or in blood pressure during the period of follow up. The progress of these patients who were managed medically was compared with that of a group of 60 patients who had had successful operations for primary hyperparathyroidism. There was no significant change in mean plasma creatinine concentration or in blood pressure in the group who had had operations during a mean follow up period of 5.9 years. The natural history of mild asymptomatic hyperparathyroidism is probably different from and better than that of the type of hyperparathyroidism that was usually seen before the advent of routine chemical screening. It is suggested that patients ...

Test Code 36736. CPT Code(s) 82310, 82330, 83970. Includes PTH Intact, Calcium, Ionized Calcium. Methodology PTH: Immunoassay (IA) • Calcium: Spectrophotometry (SP) • Ionized Calcium: Ion Specific Electrode (ISE). Reference Range(s) See Laboratory Report. PTH INTACT. Clinical Significance. The hormone Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) acts to increase serum calcium and 1-, 25- dihydroxyvitamin D concentrations, while decreasing phosphorus. Cross-reactivity with fragment 7-84 may occur in patients with renal insufficiency. The BioIntact PTH assay is considered the most reliable. Parathyroid function is related to the calcium concentration so both results should be interpreted together.. The assay is useful in making the diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism, secondary hyperparathyroidism, and a differential diagnosis of hypercalcemia. The assay helps in distinguishing ...
Background:Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) involves scan-directed removal of a single adenoma through a 2·0-cm mini-incision without intraoperative monitoring. The aim of this study was to analyse the outcomes of MIP using such a simplified technique.Methods:The study group comprised 500 consecutive patients undergoing MIP via a lateral mini-incision from August 2000 to September 2005. Levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) were measured after operation solely to aid informed discharge.Results:Some 97·4 per cent of patients were initially cured by MIP. Eight patients remained hypercalcaemic and a further five were normocalcaemic on the day after surgery but became hypercalcaemic again within 3 months of the procedure. Eleven of these patients were cured with subsequent re-exploration. Analysis of postoperative PTH data indicated that, at best, the use of intraoperative PTH measurement during surgery would have increased the cure rate by only a further 1 per cent. Three (0·6 per cent) ...
Author Summary Mice with homozygous deletion of the calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) mimic the syndrome of neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT) in humans with very high circulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) and severe life-threatening hypercalcemia. To determine effects of CaR deficiency on skeletal development and interactions between CaR and 1,25(OH)2D3 or PTH on calcium and skeletal homeostasis, we compared the skeletal phenotypes of homozygous CaR-deficient mice to those of double homozygous CaR- and 1,25(OH)2D3-deficient mice or those of double homozygous CaR- and PTH-deficient mice. CaR-deficient mice had hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia, hyperparathyroidism, severe skeletal growth retardation, and abnormalities; and most died within 2 weeks of age. Deletion of 1,25(OH)2D3 in CaR-deficient mice resulted in a longer lifespan, normocalcemia, lower serum phosphorus, greater elevation in PTH, and slight improvement in skeletal growth. ...
BACKGROUND: The kidney is one of the affected organs involved in the clinical symptoms of parathyroid hormone (PTH)-related disorders, like primary hyperparathyroidism and familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia. The molecular mechanism(s) underlying alterations in renal Ca(2+) handling in these disorders is poorly understood. METHODS: Parathyroidectomized and PTH-supplemented rats and mice infused with the calcimimetic compound NPS R-467 were used to study the in vivo effect of PTH on the expression of renal transcellular Ca(2+) transport proteins, including the epithelial Ca(2+) channel transient receptor potential, vanilloid, member 5 (TRPV5), calbindins, and the Na(+)/Ca(2+)-exchanger (NCX1). In addition, the effect of PTH on transepithelial Ca(2+) transport in rabbit connecting tubule/cortical collecting duct (CNT/CCD) primary cultures was determined. RESULTS: Decreased PTH levels in parathyroidectomized rats or NPS R-467-infused mice, resulted in reduced expression of ...

PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - The effect of intravenous calcitriol on parathyroid function was evaluated in nine chronic hemodialysis patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism. Two micrograms of calcitriol were administered intravenously after dialysis thrice weekly for ten weeks. Parathyroid function was assessed by inducing hypo- and hypercalcemia with low calcium (1.0 mEq/liter) and high calcium (4.0 mEq/liter) dialyses before and after ten weeks of intravenous calcitriol therapy. To avoid hypercalcemia during calcitriol administration, the dialysate calcium was reduced to 2.5 mEq/liter. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) values (pg/ml) from dialysis-induced hypo- and ...

According to the current guidelines [1] an individual affected by two or more primary MEN1-related endocrine tumors should be suspected to have the MEN1 syndrome. However, association of such tumors may occur randomly in the general population [9], therefore patients without family background should be candidates for genetic testing in order to confirm the diagnosis [1]. Accordingly, extensive analysis of the MEN-1 gene (including the search for large deletions by MPLA) and of the CDKN genes was performed, but no mutations were found. AIP analysis was not performed since previous studies indicated that this was not required in patients without pituitary tumors [6, 7]. Thus, to the best of our knowledge, the genetic study was in this case complete and up to date, although other conditions (mutations in noncoding regions - e.g., exon 1-, false negative results in direct sequencing, and mutations of other still unknown genes) may cause failure to detect germline mutations. In summary, since DNA ...
A five-month old tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) presented for an acute-onset pelvic limb lameness workup. The cub had been fed a meat-only diet. Radiology revealed severe generalised osteopenia, pathological fractures of the pelvis and proximal right femur. The history, clinical presentation and pathognomonic radiographic findings were consistent with nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism. The cub was initially treated conservatively by dietary management (whole chicken supplemented with calcium-multivitamin powder). Fourteen day follow-up radiographs revealed increased bone density, healing pelvic fractures and callus formation around the displaced femoral fracture fragments. Despite the osteopenia, the femoral cortices were considered dense enough to allow internal fixation using a locking plate-rod combination. Fracture reduction was complicated by extensive callus formation and muscle atrophy. Follow-up radiography on day 63 revealed excellent secondary bone healing ...
Mr Amir Bhatti is a consultant general surgeon at Spire Washington Hospital. He specialises in a number of common procedures including breast lump removal and investigation, gallbladder and gallstone removal and hernia removal.. Amir is also one of the only consultants in the country to specialise in minimally invasive parathyroid surgery - also known as a parathyroidectomy - an operation to remove the parathyroid glands or parathyroid tumours.. He explains: "The four parathyroid glands are next to the thyroid gland in the neck. Each gland is about the size of a grain of rice, weighs approximately 30 milligrams and is three to four millimetres in diameter.. "These glands help your body control the calcium level in the blood and produce a hormone called parathyroid hormone or PTH.". In some instances, a parathyroid adenoma (a benign tumour) can cause high blood calcium; this produces excessive amounts of PTH, which in turn, increases the level of calcium in ...
We have previously demonstrated that 80% of patients with PTHP will have co-existing vitamin D deficiency suggesting an increased metabolism of vitamin D. There are few data assessing the impact and safety of different vitamin D preparations on calcium, parathyroid hormone (PTH) and vitamin D in this group. Here, we report the details of replacement therapy using different vitamin D preparations.. In a retrospective study of 22 (20 F:2 M and 8 Asian:14 Non-Asian) patients with confirmed PTHP and vitamin D deficiency, we assessed the impact and safety of treatment with osteo-D2 50 000 IU after four-eight weeks (n=8), calcium and vitamin D (e.g.Adcal-D3) twice daily for three months (n=6) and over the counter (OTC) vitamin D 1000 IU/day (n=6) or cod liver oil (n=2) for three months, on serum calcium, PTH and vitamin D levels.. Results: Mean (±SD) serum calcium was statistically significantly increased after treatment in the group as a whole ...

AU - Peacock, Munro. AU - Taylor, G. A.. AU - Brown, Wendy. PY - 1980/2/14. Y1 - 1980/2/14. N2 - Antibodies to 1α,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 25-hemisuccinate linked to albumin were produced and an immunoassay for 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D developed. Plasma 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D concentrations were compared using an immunoassay and cytosol radioreceptor assay. Both assays gave comparable results but the immunoassay was more reproducible, slightly more sensitive and had a lower detection limit. Using the immunoassay the plasma 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D was 110.5 pmol/l (S.D. 29.4) in normal subjects; there was no difference between males and premenopausal females. It was negatively related to plasma phosphate. In renal failure and primary hyperparathyroidism plasma 1,25(OH)2D was positively ...
If the serum phosphorus concentration is increased and kidney function is normal, hypervitaminosis D or bone osteolysis from metastatic or primary bone neoplasia are the primary differentials.. Determining whether kidney failure is primary or secondary to hypercalcemia caused by another disorder, when hyperphosphatemia and hypercalcemia coexist with azotemia, can be difficult. Measurement of serum ionized calcium concentration may help identify dogs and cats with renal failure-induced hypercalcemia. Serum ionized calcium concentrations are typically normal or decreased in renal failure and increased in hypercalcemia caused by other disorders.. Hypercalcemia of malignancy and primary hyperparathyroidism are the primary differentials when hypercalcemia and normal to low serum phosphorus concentrations are identified. The most common malignancy is lymphoma. A careful review of the history and physical examination findings may provide clues to the diagnosis. ...
Operations on the parathyroid glands are very safe but sometimes there are complications.. The Voice: Intimately related to the thyroid gland and so sometimes the parathyroid glands are two nerves, one on each side of the neck. These recurrent laryngeal nerves provide the electricity for the movement of the vocal cords - which generate the voice. Injury to the nerve causes a weak and husky voice. Most injuries are a temporary bruising, with full recovery. However a permanent injury will result in a permanently weak voice. The risk of a permanent injury in parathyroid surgery is less than 1% (one in one hundred).. The Scar: Parathyroid surgery is undertaken through a 3 - 4cm scar that follows the natural creases in the neck. Usually it heals well leaving only a thin line. The stitches that are used are dissolvable and so there is no need for them to be removed. Application of Vitamin E to the wound greatly improves the cosmetic result.. ...
A patient initially suspected of having a giant cell granuloma was subsequently found-through additional imaging with (99m)Tc-sestamibi and ultrasound-to have osteolytic brown tumors caused by a parathyroid adenoma. Brown tumors that relate to primary hyperparathyroidism may mimic other skeletal tumors that contain giant cells, presenting difficulty with accurate diagnosis. Correlative imaging can have a valuable role in such cases, potentially avoiding the extensive work-up usually done for suspected bone metastases.
At Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, we offer patients a collaborative medical and surgical approach to treating thyroid diseases. With advances in todays specialized medical equipment, our patients often undergo a minimally invasive surgical treatment (less-than-1-inch incision) that offers a quick recovery time and minimal scarring.. Thyroid surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the neck and can be used to treat parathyroid disease (hyperparathyroidism), thyroid cancers and parathyroid adenomas. With the use of high-definition imaging technology and precision instruments, our skilled surgeons work through a few tiny incisions to perform these procedures each year. Our patients have experienced better outcomes along with minor scarring through this advanced treatment option.. Compared with traditional (or "open") surgery, minimally invasive surgery can have the following potential benefits:. ...
Preliminary results from the department of Old Age Psychiatry, Stavanger University Hospital, support a high prevalence of Secondary Hyperparathyroidism because of low vitamin D in the elderly. Normalisation of plasma parathyroid hormone levels after treatment with Vitamin D was associated with an improvement of psychiatric symptoms in some cases. Low vitamin D status resulting in inadequate calcium absorption is highly prevalent in both genders universally (30-80%). One major health related outcome is a high frequency of osteoporosis in Norway, which leads to a high incidence of fractures. Another effect of deficient vitamin D and low dietary Calcium is an up-regulation of parathyroid hormone, resulting in secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). Parathyroid hormone receptors 2(PTH2R) are expressed in the brain in locations involved in regulation of fear, anxiety, release of pituitary hormones and nociception. A deranged ...
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) has an important role in the maintenance of serum calcium levels. It activates renal 1α-hydroxylase and increases the synthesis of the active form of vitamin D (1,25[OH]2D3). PTH promotes calcium release from the bone and enhances tubular calcium resorption through direct action on these sites. Hallmarks of secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) include increase in serum fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23), reduction in renal 1,25[OH]2D3 production with a decline in its serum levels, decrease in intestinal calcium absorption, and, at later stages, hyperphosphatemia and high levels of PTH. In this paper, we aim to critically discuss severe CKD-related hyperparathyroidism, in which PTH, through calcium-dependent and -independent mechanisms, leads to harmful effects and manifestations of the uremic syndrome, such as bone loss, ...
Introduction: A 30-year-old female patient with inherited osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) Type 1 was referred due to hypercalcaemia and suspicion of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). She had serum ca2+ 1.56 mmol/L, serum parathyroid hormone 115 ng/ml (, 70), and pHPT was diagnosed, but no scan uptake. By exploratory neck surgery, all parathyroid glands were hyperplastic and 3 ½ parathyroid + thymus were removed. The HPT was hypothesised to be due to abnormal calcium metabolism from OI (J Endocrinol Invest 1999), although not described previously ...

Background Disorders of mineral metabolism, secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT), hyperphosphatemia, hypercalcemia, and deficiencies of vitamin D are common complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD). While their contributions to the development of renal osteodystrophy are well known, recent evidence has linked these factors to cardiovascular disease, including non-atherosclerotic vascular calcification, excessive activation of the renin-angiotensin system, hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, and death. The obvious task ahead for health authorities in the developing world is to identify patients at risk and evaluate for SHPT because early intervention may slower arrest the progression of both bone and cardiovascular disease. Objective of the study To determine and describe the patterns, prevalence of hyperparathyroidism and biochemical evidence of mineral bone disease in pre-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease at the Kenyatta National Hospital. ...

INTRODUCTION: In thyroid and parathyroid surgery iatrogenic injury of the parathyroid glands or the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) is a possible complication that needs to be prevented. The visible contrast between thyroid and parathyroid tissue is delicate to observe. The aim of this pilot study was to collect in vivo spectral reflectance-signatures of critical tissue types encountered during thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and to assess the presence of useful spectral distinctive features that might be applied for future devices enabling intraoperative tissue-specific image contrast enhancement. METHODS: Wide-band spectra (350-1830nm, 1nm resolution) were collected in vivo during thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Subjected to tissue type accessibility, on average 2 tissue types per patient were measured. For each tissue type, 5 spectra were recorded per site, covering 1-2 sites per tissue type. Mean tissue spectra were calculated for all measured tissue types. After visually comparing these ...

PY - 2011/12. Y1 - 2011/12. N2 - Higher levels of albuminuria associate with increased risk for adverse outcomes independent of estimated GFR (eGFR), but whether albuminuria also associates with concurrent complications specific to chronic kidney disease (CKD) is unknown. Here, we assessed the association of spot albumin-to- creatinine ratio with anemia, acidosis, hyperphosphatemia, hypoalbuminemia, hyperparathyroidism, and hypertension among 30,528 adult participants in NHANES 1988-1994 and 1999-2006. After multivariable adjustment including eGFR, higher albumin-to-creatinine ratios associated with anemia, acidosis, hypoalbuminemia, hyperparathyroidism, and hypertension but only weakly associated with acidosis and anemia. Furthermore, the associations between ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Calcium and phosphorus metabolism and the Parathyroid Gland. AU - Nwariaku, Ohwofiemu E. PY - 2006/1/1. Y1 - 2006/1/1. N2 - The parathyroid glands comprise a group of endocrine structures (usually 4 in number) that either hug the posterior surface of the thyroid gland or are in close proximity to it. Although exceedingly small in size, they play crucial roles in the maintenance of calcium and phosphorus balance. Their function spans a range of activities, including blood coagulation, modulation of membrane permeability, muscle contraction, neuromuscular excitability, and the regulation of various signal transduction processes within cells. Their importance to the surgeon is usually related to states of overactivity in which hypercalcemia may ensue. Occasionally, these glands also become important in surgical practices when a state of hypocalcemia results, as may occur after total thyroidectomy for goiter or neoplasia. The intricate control systems regulated ...
This gene encodes a member of the parathyroid family of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a protein that binds to the parathyroid hormone/parathyroid hormone-related peptide receptor and regulates blood calcium and phosphate levels. Excess production of the encoded protein, known as hyperparathyroidism, can result in hypercalcemia and kidney stones. On the other hand, defective processing of the encoded protein may lead to hypoparathyroidism, which can result in hypocalcemia and numbness. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015 ...
Background: Following spinal cord injury (SCI) declines in sub-lesional bone mineral density (BMD) occur, and are associated with a high prevalence of fractures. Conventional risk factors for osteoporosis diagnosis in the non-SCI population put all individuals with SCI at a high risk of fracturing, however not all experience fractures. Vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels have been linked to skeletal health in the non-SCI population, and therefore may be a fracture risk factor worth targeting post-SCI. Objectives: To evaluate: 1) the prevalence of suboptimal vitamin D (Serum 25(OH)D ,75nmol/L) status and identify the relationships between 25(OH)D and bone quality; and 2) the prevalence of secondary hyperparathyroidism (Serum intact PTH ≥ 7.0 pmol/L) and identify the relationships between serum PTH and bone quality, in males and females with chronic SCI. Methods: Individuals were assessed via cross-sectional study design. Serum 25(OH)D was measured using a chemiluminescent ...
Antibodies to 1 alpha, 25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 25-hemisuccinate linked to albumin were produced and an immunoassay for 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D developed. Plasma 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D concentrations were compared using an immunoassay and cytosol radioreceptor assay. Both assays gave comparable results but the immunoassay was more reproducible, slightly more sensitive and had a lower detection limit. Using the immunoassay the plasma 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D was 110.5 pmol/l (S.D. 29.4) in normal subjects; there was no difference between males and premenopausal females. It was negatively related to plasma phosphate. In renal failure and primary hyperparathyroidism plasma 1,25(OH)2D was positively related to radiocalcium absorption. Following 1 and 2 microgram of 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 given orally the peak plasma concentration occurs within 12 h.
Carbapatite associated with COD is highly suggestive of hypercalciuria and should raise suspicion for primary hyperparathyroidism 47 In contrast, carbapatite associated with COM is more related to medullary sponge kidney and other causes of urinary stasis. The lions share of kidney function involves filtration of the blood via a counter current exchange process that biology makes use of not only in kidneys, but also in the distal portion of limbs. You can check it quite easily: just press the tip of the spinach kidney stones homeopathic cure two fingers and squeeze a little. The research team will assess the safety and feasibility through a pilot clinical trial involving 15 subjects undergoing evaluation and treatment of existing kidney stones. Kidney stones are generally more likely to get formed when the body is in a dehydrated state for a longer period of time with a decrease in urine production.

MEN 1 is caused by a mutation at the PYGM gene on chromosome 11. PYGM is one of a group of genes known as tumor suppressor genes that help to control cell division. An individual who inherits one defective copy of a tumor suppressor gene from either parent has a strong likelihood of developing MEN 1, because there is a high probability of another mutation developing in the other copy of the PYGM gene at some point during the thousands of cell divisions that occur with growth and development. When a second mutation occurs, the cell that contains the mutation no longer has any normal copy of the tumor suppressor gene. When both copies are defective, tumor suppression fails and tumors develop. As a result, individuals with MEN 1 have uncontrolled cell growth and develop tumors in several endocrine glands, including the parathyroid glands (80-95% of patients), the pancreas (about 50% of patients) and the pituitary (around 25% of patients). The most frequent symptom of MEN 1 is ...

SHPT in dialysis patients is caused by the lack of active Vitamin D which results in low serum calcium concentrations. When this happens, PTH secretion increases to mobilize calcium from the bone. This high concentration of PTH helps to keep the serum calcium concentration normal. If SHPT is left untreated, there is a greater chance that the patient s bones will become weak and brittle, leading to fractures and bone pain. Continued SHPT may also lead to enlargement of the parathyroid glands and loss of the ability to regulate PTH concentrations. Since the kidneys are no longer functioning, the body does not have enough active vitamin D to maintain serum calcium concentrations in the normal range ...
At some point in the last month I had found an article talking about children and adults who develop into short stature from tumor induced osteomalacia. This post is not going to have anything to do with height increase but is more of a study on the mechanism behind one of the more common causes for short stature. I am hoping that through learning more about dwarfism and the many causes, we can figure out the entire mechanism for human growth.. For us to understnd tumor induced osteomalacia, we first have to study the general form of osteomalacia. Lets first to a very quick intro on osteomalacia.. From the Wikipedia article on Osteomalacia (HERE)…. Osteomalacia is the softening of the bones caused by defective bone mineralization secondary to inadequate amounts of available phosphorus and calcium, or because of overactive resorption of calcium from the bone as a result of hyperparathyroidism (which causes hypercalcemia, in contrast to other aetiologies). ...
Once positioned, a surgeon trained in ultrasonography used a 10MHz linear array ultrasound probe (Sonosite, USA) to localize the lesion. The adenoma was identified as a hypoechoic area close to the thyroid. The site was localized percutaneously and the neck marked over the maximum transverse and longitudinal planes. Where these two lines intersected a 3cm transverse mark was placed on the neck. Following skin preparation, the area of incision was infiltrated with 10cc of local anesthetic (xylocaine 0.5% with 1:10,000 adrenaline) and the incision made. Subplatysmal planes were created and the strap muscles were mobilized. The thyroid plane was then entered between the strap muscles and the sternocleidomastoid muscle. The plane was then continued down to the adenoma. Once visualized, the adenoma was not immediately mobilized, instead a 14-gauge needle was placed through the wound onto the adenoma. Once the lesion was concordant with ultrasound findings and the recurrent laryngeal nerve identified ...
Role of Calcium-Sensing Receptors in Bone and Mineral Metabolism Dr. Shobacks laboratory is working on how extracellular calcium-sensing receptors (CaSRs) sense changes in the extracellular calcium in the serum and in the bone microenvironment to alter cellular functions. These receptors play critical roles in parathyroid and kidney function that have been well-established through human, animal and cell-based studies. Our group is investigating the role of this receptor in the control of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion in mouse models and the interactions between the vitamin D receptor (VDR) and its systemically and locally generated (within the parathyroid gland itself) ligand 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25-D) in the control of parathyroid function, systemic calciotropic hormone secretion, and mineral balance. Most of our work is in conditional and generalized knockout mouse models with selected work experiments in vitro in parathyroid gland organ ...
Serum phosphorus (Phosphate) levels alone are of limited diagnostic value and should be correlated with serum calcium levels. An increased phosphorus with decreased calcium suggests either hypoparathyroidism or renal disease. A decreased phosphorus and an increased calcium suggests hyperparathyroidism or sarcoidosis. When both calcium and phosphorus are decreased diagnostic considerations include malabsorption, vitamin D deficiency and renal tubular acidosis. Increased phosphorus and normal or increased calcium suggests Milk-alkali syndrome or hypervitaminosis D. ...
PTHrP may be used for the differential diagnosis of hypercalcaemia of unknown origin where other diagnostic tests have not identified the aetiology of the hypercalcaemia but where PTH and iCa suggest parathyroid independent hypercalcaemia. PTHrP is a hormone that can be produced by dogs, cats and horses with several different types of tumours and is considered to be the underlying cause of hypercalcaemia of malignancy in many but not all cases. Almost all anal gland apocrine neoplasia, the majority of hypercalcaemic lymphomas and smaller percentages of myeloma and carcinomas are PTHrP positive. Circulating levels of PTHrP in normal dogs are almost undetectable (< 0.5 pmol/L). Levels greater than 2.0 pmol/L are considered significant in dogs. Cats appear to show similar values. Please note: SAMPLE PREPARATION IS CRITICAL FOR THE ACCURATE ANALYSIS OF PTHrP (see procedure for PTH on p53). THE APROTININ EDTA TUBE SUPPLIED WITH THE TRANSPORT PACK SHOULD BE USED FOR THE COLLECTION OF PTHrP ...
