With the advent of techniques enabling accurate localization of diseased parathyroid gland pre operatively, concept of minimally invasive parathyroidectomy has developed and found to be equivalent to traditional Bilateral Neck Exploration (BNE).4-7
The primary types of ENT surgery procedures are tonsillectomy, ear procedures (myringoplasty, tympanoplasty), functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), tracheostomy, thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy, adenoidectomy, tongue operations (glossectomy, frenectomy), laryngeal operations, pharyngeal operations, and radical neck dissection.
Also, we are implementing a phase III clinical study, targeting hypercalcemia in patients with parathyroid carcinoma and patients with primary hyperparathyroidism who are unable to undergo parathyroidectomy or relapse after parathyroidectomy.
Traditionally, conventional bilateral neck exploration was the method of choice for the operation, but there has been a recent trend toward minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP), mostly given the technological advancements of the pre-operative imaging methods (3-6).
An early surgical resection using the minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) technique is becoming a commonly used practice.
Intraoperative parathyroid hormone assay during focused parathyroidectomy: the importance of 20 minutes measurement.
It is also used for the treatment of hypercalcemia in adult patients with parathyroid carcinoma and severe hypercalcemia in adult patients with primary HPT who are unable to undergo parathyroidectomy.
In this article, we report a case of robot-assisted endoscopic mediastinal parathyroidectomy, which to our knowledge, is the first case in Turkey.
Elevated serum FGF-23 levels have been demonstrated in hypoparathyroid patients secondary to other causes such as parathyroidectomy, thyroidectomy or accidental parathyroidectomy and transient hypoparathyroidism in the offspring of hyperparathyroid mothers (30,31,32).
The control of secondary hyperparathyroidism can be performed using calcimimetics (Allosteric calcium-sensing receptor agonist in parathyroid cells, lowering the secretion of iPTH) or by surgical parathyroidectomy in the absence of response to calcimimetics (5).
