Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder characterized by autonomous production of parathyroid hormone. Patients with the symptomatic disease should be referred for parathyroidectomy. However, the distinction between the pathological condition and the benign one is very challenging in the surgical setting; therefore, accurate recognition is important to ensure success during minimally invasive surgery. At present, all intraoperative techniques significantly increase surgical time and, consequently, cost. In this proof-of-concept study, Raman microscopy was used to differentiate between healthy parathyroid tissue and parathyroid adenoma from 18 patients. The data showed different spectroscopic features for the two main tissue types of healthy and adenoma. Moreover, the parathyroid adenoma subtypes (chief cells and oxyphil cells) were characterized by their own Raman spectra. The partial least-squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) model built to discriminate healthy from adenomatous parathyroid tissue was able to correctly classify all samples in the calibration and validation data sets, providing 100% prediction accuracy. The PLS-DA model built to discriminate chief cell adenoma from oxyphil cell adenoma allowed us to correctly classify >99% of the spectra during calibration and cross-validation and to correctly predict 100% of oxyphil and 99.8% of chief cells in the external validation data set. The results clearly demonstrate the great potential of Raman spectroscopy. The final goal would be development of a Raman portable fiber probe device for intraoperative optical biopsy, both to improve the surgical success rate and reduce surgical cost. © 2017 American Chemical Society.
