Multiple sampling for parathyroid hormone by subclavian approach.

PMID:  433025     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Selective venous catheterization with parathyroid hormone assay is a valuable procedure in the diagnosis and treatment of parathyroid tumors. The multiple sampling via the femoral vein is sometimes frustratingly uncertain and time consuming. The technique herein described is simpler, quicker, and less hazardous. It is accomplished via the subclavian approach, a relatively easier anatomic way, and utilizes a short single-curve catheter that gives a high degree of torsion control.
