FUENTES VALDES, Edelberto et al. Radio-guided surgery for removal of a giant parathyroid cyst related to hyperthyroidism. Rev Cubana Endocrinol [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2953.

Among present advances of surgical treatment of hyperthyroidism is the preoperative localization of hyper-functioning glands by preoperative and intraoperative scan, this later one by a special gamma probe. By the other hand, parathyroid cysts are rare; may be of functioning type or not, as well as the findings of 99mTc-MIBI, and the intraoperative use of gamma probe to assess all the possible sites where could be hyperproductive glands of parathyroid hormone. We describe features of management, safety, and administration of radiological agent during the immediate preoperative period, as well as use of gamma probe during intervention. Evolution over follow-up is reported. This case represents the third patient operated on from hyperthyroidism by radio-guided surgery in our center, which introduced this technique in our country.

Palabras clave : Parathyroid cyst; hyperparathyroidism, primary; radio-guided surgery; gamma probe.
