BACKGROUND : Previous studies of video-assisted techniques for parathyroidectomy in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism have found similar or better results compared with bilateral neck exploration. The aim of the present study was to compare open minimally invasive parathyroidectomy with the video-assisted technique for primary hyperparathyroidism in a multicentre randomized trial. METHODS : Some 143 patients were randomized to open (n = 75) or video-assisted (n = 68) parathyroidectomy… CONTINUE READING
