Abstract

This article reviews the current state of the art regarding therapy for primary hyperparathyroidism. Clinical evaluation and indications for parathyroidectomy are described, followed by a review of surgical techniques currently being practiced and possible outcomes involved. Focused parathyroidectomy has become a successful alternative to conventional bilateral cervical exploration.
