Background: The patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) usually had reduced bone mineral density, which might lead to a substantial increase in osteoporosis, fracture and mortality. Although surgical intervention is effective in reducing parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels in suitable candidates refractory to medical therapy, the effect of surgery on bone mass changes still requires further evaluation. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the characteristics of BMD changes after total parathyroidectomy (PTX) without autotransplantation and its associated factors. Read More
