The Parathyroid Glands in Thyroid Surgery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Transient hypocalcaemia is the most common complication of total thyroidectomy. In the hands of experienced surgeons, the risk of permanent hypocalcaemia is very low. Understanding the anatomy and technique of preservation of these glands is critical to reducing the risk of hypocalcaemia. Hypocalcaemia is what generally prolongs a patient's hospital stay. In recent years, the trend has been to predict who is at risk of developing hypocalcaemia and empirically treat with calcium and vitamin D in order to facilitate early safe discharge following total thyroidectomy.
