Table 2 This table demonstrates the reduced usefulness of IOPTH in the group with preoperative 2 concordant imaging localizing the suspected adenoma

From: Intraoperative parathyroid hormone level in parathyroidectomy: which patients benefit from it?

Localization IOPTH not useful IOPTH useful
Localized 184 2 (1.08% p value 0.017)
Not localized 23 2 (8%)
Total 207 4 (1.9%)
  1. 1.08% of the localized group benefited from IOPTH. This was statistically different from the group of patients that did not have 2 concordant preoperative imaging (p value = 0.017).
