Background. The increasing sensitivity of preoperative localization methods in combination with intraoperative parathyroid hormone (PTHIO) has led to the use of minimally invasive procedures in parathyroid surgery. In addition, it is usually accepted that a decrease in PTHIO values by more than 50% within 5 minutes after excision of hyperfunctioning parathyroid tissue can be considered as a confirmation of the adequacy of the surgical treatment.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of use of PTHIO on the success rate of minimally invasive video-assisted parathyroidectomy (MIVAP). ......
