Background: Clinical and molecular findings have shown that parathyroid hormone (PTH) affects the heart and vasculature through downstream actions of G protein-coupled receptors in the myocardium and endothelial cells.

Patients with chronic post-surgical hypoparathyroidism (hypoPT) have higher incidence...
