Abstract Purpose Disruption of calcium homeostasis is the most common complication after total thyroidectomy in adults. We explored the incidence and risk factors of hypocalcaemia and hypoparathyroidism after total thyroidectomy in children(≤ 18 years of age). Methods One-hundred-and-six children underwent a total thyroidectomy. Patient, operative and outcome data were collected and analyzed. Results The indication for surgery was Graves' disease in 52 children(49.1%), Multiple Endocrine Neoplas...

BACKGROUND: The success of minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) relies on accurate localization of the abnormal parathyroid glands. Concordant findings on ultrasound (US) and 99mTc-scintigraphy (sestamibi) are currently considered the 'gold standard'. Computed tomography (CT) has also recently been used in preoperative planning. We sought to assess the accuracy of CT for localization of abnormal parathyroid glands in such patients. METHODS: An audit of 75 patients with primary hyperparathy...
