[A combination of diseases of the thyroid and asymptomatic adenoma of the parathyroid glands].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The authors have analyzed the cases of diagnosis of asymptomatic tumors of the parathyroid gland made during 8814 operations on the thyroid in the period from 1995 through 2004. The probability of detecting parathyroid incidentalomas in different forms of goiter was calculated which reaches 0.4%. A precision technique of operating allows the parathyroid tumors to be detected at the preclinical stage in all patients apart from a removal of the necessary volume of the thyroid tissue, guaranteed preservation of the laryngeal nerves and parathyroid glands.
