An informed consent was obtained from the patient, and the operation was performed totally thoracoscopically via the da Vinci Si robot system[R] (Intuitive Surgical Sarl, Aubonne, Switzerland) with intraoperative intact PTH guidance.
Fasting blood samples were obtained in thalassemic patients and controls for determination of serum Ca, P, Cr, albumin, intact PTH, 25-OHD and plasma intact FGF-23 levels.
Laboratory investigations revealed hypercalcemia (3.1 mmol/L), hypophosphatemia (0.55 mmol/L), and elevated intact PTH level (1028.9 pmol/L).
At 11 years of age, it was noted that the patient had hypocalcemia with an increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) [4] measured with use of an intact PTH assay.
Ten years after her first presentation, she was detected to have asymptomatic hyperparathyroidism with corrected ionized calcium of 1.42 mmol/L [normal range: 1.0-1.3], urinary Ca/Cr ratio of 0.32, and intact PTH level of 98.9 pg/L [12-60].
The aim of the study is to assess and compare the serum intact PTH and 25(OH)D in HF and non-HF patients being prospectively enrolled into the study during hospital stay in the cardiology ward.
Workup now revealed the following: serum intact PTH: 7pg/mL (15-65 pg/mL), PTHrP: 30pmol/L (<2.0 pmol/L), 1,25-hydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol): 76pg/ml (18-64 pg/mL), 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels: <4ng/mL (20-50 ng/mL), and phosphorus level: 1.8mg/dl (2.5-4.5 mg/dL).
The following month, he had a potassium of 5 mEq/L, serum bicarbonate of 36 mEq/L, serum calcium concentration of 8 mg/dl (albumin of 3.7 g/dL), phosphorus of 2.4 mg/dl, and intact PTH level of 190 pg/ml.

However, the relationship between vitamin D, intact PTH, and calcium-phosphate metabolism and development of CKD remains controversial.
