BACKGROUND Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) and its associated abnormalities in mineral metabolism increase the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and death in chronic renal failure (CRF). The effect of parathyroidectomy (PTX) on the incidence of major cardiovascular events in CRF patients with SHPT is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that PTX reduces the incidence of cardiovascular complications and death in CRF patients with severe SHPT scheduled for PTX, comparing the outcome of patients… CONTINUE READING
