IntroductionHypocalcaemia is a complication of total thyroidectomy (TT) and may be more frequent in patients with GravesÂ’ disease. The reason for this increased risk is unclear and its occurrence has been associated with: ophthalmopathy severity, preoperative calcaemia and reimplantation of parathyroid glands.ObjectivesTo evaluate the risk factors for transient hypocalcaemia (TH) and definitive hypoparat...

Introduction: Parathyroid adenoma is the most frequent cause of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). In recent years minimally invasive surgical techniques have challenged the traditional bilateral neck exploration. There are different imaging techniques for preoperative location of parathyroid adenomas. In this study the authors review the role of Doppler ultrasound focusing on its safety, availability and affordability.Aim: To evaluate the role of Doppl...
