Abstract [en]

Background:Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) involves scan-directed removal of a single adenoma through a 2·0-cm mini-incision without intraoperative monitoring. The aim of this study was to analyse the outcomes of MIP using such a simplified technique.Methods:The study group comprised 500 consecutive patients undergoing MIP via a lateral mini-incision from August 2000 to September 2005. Levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) were measured after operation solely to aid informed discharge.Results:Some 97·4 per cent of patients were initially cured by MIP. Eight patients remained hypercalcaemic and a further five were normocalcaemic on the day after surgery but became hypercalcaemic again within 3 months of the procedure. Eleven of these patients were cured with subsequent re-exploration. Analysis of postoperative PTH data indicated that, at best, the use of intraoperative PTH measurement during surgery would have increased the cure rate by only a further 1 per cent. Three (0·6 per cent) of 500 patients had permanent recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy after MIP.Conclusion:MIP performed by the lateral focused mini-incision technique, without the use of intraoperative PTH monitoring, is a safe and effective procedure that results in outcomes equal to those of bilateral neck exploration.
