Intra Operative PTH detection is a feasible method to distinguish parathyroid tissue from non-parathyroid tissue during parathyroidectomy. Following the wide application of intra Operative PTH detection, many efforts were put to reduce the turnaround time. We report a case of parathyroid adenoma combined with thyroid nodules on a 63-year-old patient, and successfully identify different tissue types during surgery by a novel immune Chromatography based rapid intra Operative PTH detection device.
