Özet

Purpose: Recent studies indicate that plasma heart-type fatty acid binding-protein (H-FABP) concentration can be used as an early biochemical marker for macrovascular diseases. Patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHT) reportedly display an increase in cardiovascular (CV) risk factors. Our aim was to evaluate plasma H-FABP concentration in these subjects with primary hyperparathyroidism, by comparing them with healthy controls.
