Hemosuccus pancreaticus is defined as intermittent bleeding from the pancreatic duct into the GI tract, usually caused by the rupture of an pseudoaneurysm, which is usually associated with pancreatitis, abdominal surgery, and can result in life-threatening hemorrhage. Hyperparathyroidism is a rare cause of pancreatitis, it should be suspected in all patients with a history of primary hyperpara¬t hyroidism, When these diseases coexist, the course of pancreatitis can be rather severe and often complicated. This report detail a case of Hemosuccus pancreaticus due to hyperparathyroidism associated pancreatitis and its successful emergency conservative management by Embolization Techniques...

BACKGROUND: Current techniques for management of primary hyperpara-thyroidism (pHPT) rely on preoperative localization studies in order to perform a direct exploration of the neck. This case series reports the results of minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) performed in twenty-two consecutive pHPT patients with suspected parathyroid adenoma. METHODS: All patients with symptomatic pHPT and or aberrant biochemical markers underwent preoperative evaluation including calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) serum levels, and a Tc-99 Sestamibi (MIBI) scintigraphy scan...

In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether hyperpara thyroidism affects the elastic properties of aorta, calculated as aortic distensibility and aortic stiffness index. Eighteen patients with hyperparathyroidism were enrolled in the study. The control group consisted of 18 healthy subjects with similar baseline characteristics. All subjects underwent echocardiographic examination. Internal aortic root diameters were measured at 3 cm above the aortic valve by the use of two-dimensional guided M-mode transthoracic echocardiography, and arterial blood pressure was measured simultaneously from the brachial artery by sphygmomano metry...

BACKGROUND: The cost effectiveness of preoperative localization in cases of primary hyperpara-thyroidism has not been established. We analyzed the potential savings in operative time after localization with technetium 99m (99mTc) sestamibi scan. METHODS: Thirty-three patients had localization of a solitary adenoma with 99mTc-sestamibi. Measurement was made of the time required for adenomectomy, unilateral neck exploration (UNE), unilateral neck exploration and confirmation of one contralateral parathyroid gland (UNEC), or bilateral neck exploration (BNE)...

Twenty-one patients with hyperpara-thyroidism were studied to determine the outcome of surgical treatment by a variety of surgeons using a variety of techniques. Primary surgical treatment was excision of an adenoma in 11 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. One patient (7%) had a true recurrence. One patient (7%) had persistent disease. Subtotal parathyroidectomies were carried out in three patients with primary diffuse hyperplasia and in five patients with chronic renal disease. Total parathyroidectomy and autotransplantation were performed in two more recent patients with chronic renal disease...
