Background: British Association of Thyroid and Endocrine Surgeons defines post-operative hypocalcaemia as adjusted calcium of < 2.0 mmol/l; ‘late hypocalcaemia’ as the ongoing requirement for calcium/Vitamin D supplements at 6 months; permanent post-surgical hypoparathyroidism (PSHP) at 12 months. The incidence rates of late hypocalcaemia are 6.5–12.1% and PSHP is 0.9%–4.5%.Objective: To evaluate PSHP incidence rate in total thyro...

Background: One of the main indications for parathyroidectomy surgery in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is osteoporosis. NICE guideline recommends 2-3 yearly Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) assessments to evaluate bone mineral density (BMD) in asymptomatic PHPT. Objective: We undertook an audit to evaluate bone health practice in PHPT patients in line with NICE guidelines.Methodology: Retrospective case notes and electr...
