OBJECTIVE Osteopenia is an important feature of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP). However, little is known about the change of bone mineral density (BMD) in PHP after surgery. The aim was to investigate the mechanisms of increased BMD after parathyroidectomy in patients with PHP. DESIGN Prospective observational study. PATIENTS Ten patients with PHP (7 women, 3 men; mean age 53.2+/-9.1 years). All patients underwent parathyroidectomy for excision of parathyroid adenoma. MEASUREMENTS BMDs… CONTINUE READING
