Model A describes fast relief of healthy glands from total PTH suppression after adenectomy because of an unconfirmed assumption that the relief mathematically depends on the same rate constant (k) as the adenomatous PTH decay.
in most patients with a PTH surge until adenectomy (see footnote a to Table 1).
During minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, the manipulations by the surgeon influence the PTH concentrations until adenectomy (Fig.
A major clinical question that presents itself is the problem as to which PTH concentration, either PTH at adenectomy or preoperative baseline, should be used for reference when calculating the 50% decrease within 10 min.
The decrease in PTH from the preoperative baseline to adenectomy indicates that the vessels of the affected gland have indeed been clamped before excision.
Increasing PTH from the preoperative baseline to adenectomy originates from squeezing of the glands or the adenoma by surgical manipulations.
Prolonged monitoring may be necessary in cases with an atypical PTH surge until adenectomy (case 2) if the criterion (1) of PTH <50% within 10 min is missed, as shown in Table 2.
Preoperative baseline PTH is inadequate for kinetic calculations and must not be used as a surrogate for the concentration at adenectomy.
