Following parathyroidectomy (PTX), bone mineral density (BMD) increases in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), yet information is scarce concerning changes in bone structure and strength following normalization of parathyroid hormone levels postsurgery. In this 1-year prospective controlled study, high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) was used to evaluate changes in bone geometry, volumetric BMD (vBMD), microarchitecture, and estimated strength in… CONTINUE READING
