Localization of gastrinomas by selective intra-arterial calcium injection.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Preoperative localisation is important for successful surgical treatment of gastrinomas. However, a satisfactory method that achieves this has not been defined, and at present somatostatin receptor scintigraphy and selective intra-arterial stimulation testing with secretin have the greatest sensitivities. As secretin is now difficult to obtain, we decided to explore the use of calcium gluconate as a secretagogue. High extracellular calcium concentrations cause degranulation of neu...
