Latest Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) News
The risk of death more than tripled with iPTH levels above 600 pg/mL at 1 week after surgery.
Meta-analysis reveals a lower risk of recurrence and persistence of SHPT when total parathyoidectomy is performed without transplanting parathyroid tissue.
Among other changes, the new KDIGO guidelines highlight the potential dangers of hypercalcemia.
From 2003 to 2011 there was a 26.7% decrease in in-hospital mortality rate after hip fracture.
Patients often received sodium thiosulfate with other therapies.
Typically, about 2% to 20% of SHPT patients experience recurrence or persistence after conventional parathyroidectomy procedures, likely due to residual parathyroid tissue.
In a study of CKD patients, intact PTH levels remained stable those receiving cholecalciferol 8000 IU daily but increased in placebo recipients.
Higher CTR was associated with greater risks of death from cardiovascular disease and other causes.
Researchers found lower all-cause mortality for cinacalcet-treated patients concomitantly treated with vitamin D and phosphate binders, for example.
Up to half of transplant patients might experience tertiary hyperparathyroidism.
In a study of hemodialysis patients, mortality risk increased along with phosphorus level, particularly among patients with higher residual renal urea clearance.
The researchers found that patients of high-volume surgeons had a lower rate of vocal cord paralysis compared to patients of low-volume surgeons.
At 18 months, PTH levels were within target for 67% and 68% of participants who initiated etelcalcetide at 2.5 mg and 5 mg, respectively.
Nearly twice as many patients achieved the target phosphorus range after a year of taking the phosphate binder, regardless of iPTH level.
Cinacalcet treatment may serve as a bridge to parathyroidectomy or as an alternative, researchers say.
