Abstract

Mediastinal parathyroid disease requiring a thoracic surgical approach is a rare and challenging clinical entity. The objective of this study was to review our experience treating these patients, highlighting the importance of a multidisciplinary approach. Seven patients required a thoracic approach for mediastinal parathyroid disease between 1999 and 2010. All patients achieved biochemical cure with varying combinations of preoperative and intraoperative localizing studies interpreted by a multidisciplinary team, including radiologists, thoracic and endocrine surgeons, being required in each patient.
