Potential clinical use of the EDTA-infusion test
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The introduction of assays for the intact parathyrin (parathyroid hormone) has dramatically improved the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. However, in some patients with mild or intermittent hypercalcaemia, when plasma concentrations of intact parathyrin may be within the normal reference concentrations, the diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism may still be problematic. In these patients, the EDTA-infusion test is of potential value, as it also might be in patients with equivocal operative findings.
