Part II: Hyperparathyroidism: NIH Criteria and High Calcium Levels

Part II: Hyperparathyroidism: NIH Criteria and High Calcium Levels

High calcium and Hyperparathyroidism with NIH Criteria. Dr. Politz from the Norman Parathyroid Center presents a discussion on NIH criteria for diagnosing hyperparathyroidism to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

Parathyroid surgery: The probe is used for measuring parathyroid hormone.

Parathyroid surgery: The probe is used for measuring parathyroid hormone.

During parathyroid surgery, Drs. Norman and Politz us the probe to measure the parathyroid hormone NOT to localize the tumor. The probe measures the amount of parathyroid homone being produced by the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid tumor has higher measurements than a normal parathyroid gland.

Endocrinologist asks about tests, cure rate, and malignancy

Endocrinologist asks about tests, cure rate, and malignancy

Endocrinologist tells others about what tests are needed to diagnose primary hyperparathyroidism, then asks leading experts about cure rate and percentage of patients that have malignancy.

Part II : Parathyroid Disease- Areas of Confusion in Diagnosing Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Part II : Parathyroid Disease- Areas of Confusion in Diagnosing Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Shows how 1,445 endocrinologists did workups on more than 10,000 patients with high calcium levels, why intermittent normal calcium levels are ok, and very informative data on negative sestamibi scans and negative ultrasounds.

Parathyroid Glands Can’t Be Anywhere

Parathyroid Glands Can’t Be Anywhere

Parathyroid glands can’t be everywhere and an experienced surgeon can take less than 20 minutes to complete and MIRP “mini” surgery even if there is a negative sestamibi scan.

Part III : NIH Criteria Evaluation and Discussion

Part III : NIH Criteria Evaluation and Discussion

Dr. Politz from the Norman Parathyroid Center and Tampa General Hospital, talks about where the NIH guidelines came from and why, the percentages of people with parathyroid tumors that are outside some of these guidelines, and how endocrinologists can be proactive with this disease. Part

Hyperplasia is Rare: Parathyroid Disease confusion in diagnosis

Hyperplasia is Rare: Parathyroid Disease confusion in diagnosis

Dr James Norman from the Norman Parathyroid Center speaks with a group of endocrinologists during and AACE meeting. You will learn the three (3) causes of secondary hyperparathyroidism are renal failure, Gastric bypass, and celiac disease and that there are no causes of secondary hyperparathyroidism

Part I : Parathyroid Disease- Areas of Confusion in Diagnosing Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Shows how 1,445 endocrinologists did workups on more than 10,000 patients with high calcium levels and the trends of endocrinologists around the world in diagnosing primary hyperparathyroidism. Also discussed is how FHH cannot be distinguished from PHPT with a 24 hr urine test.
