Abstract

Background: We sought to evaluate the relationship between the preoperative core-laboratory parathyroid hormone (CL-PTH) level and the baseline intraoperative PTH (IOPTH) level and assess the impact of any differences on clinical decision making in consecutive surgical patients with primary hyperparathyroidism undergoing parathyroidectomy. Methods: The CL-PTH and baseline IOPTH levels were compared. The influence of relying on either the CL-PTH or baseline PTH levels for intraoperative decision making was determined. Results: Data were available for 316 patients. Baseline IOPTH measurements were usually higher than the CL-PTH (247 patients; 78.2%) measurements, with a mean difference of 68.2 pg/mL (P <.001). Using the CL-PTH as a surrogate for the baseline parathyroid hormone (PTH) would have prolonged the operation in 23 patients (7.3%). Conclusion: Baseline point-of-care IOPTH levels were higher than the preoperative CL-PTH levels in >75% of patients undergoing parathyroidectomy. Using the CL-PTH in lieu of an IOPTH baseline value would prolong the operation in some patients.
