Remissione di iperparatiroidismo secondario dopo nefrectomia in un paziente emodializzato: ruolo di Etelcalcetide
Secondary hyperparathyroidism remission after nephrectomy in a dialysis patient: role of Etelcalcetide
<p>Secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is a common issue in dialysis patients; it contributes significantly to their morbidity and mortality. Here we describe the case of a hemodialysis patient with severe secondary HPT, treated with Etelcalcetide, the new intravenous calcimimetic agent, employed after a nephrectomy due to a renal neoplasm to reduce successfully the serum levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) and bone specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP). No significant change in serum calcium was recorded during treatment, while the already high serum phosphorus concentrations further increased after surgery. By maintaining the calcium mimetic therapy, even if at lower doses, the concentrations of PTH and BAP remained constant over the time.</p>
