Routine bilateral neck exploration and four-gland dissection remains unnecessary in modern parathyroid surgery.

Laryngoscope Investig Otolaryngol 2019 Feb 28;4(1):188-192. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Augusta University Augusta Georgia.

Objective: Recent advances in preoperative imaging techniques and intraoperative parathyroid hormone (ioPTH) assays have made single-gland, minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) the preferred treatment option for most patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Despite this evolution, a recommendation for bilateral neck exploration (BNE) with four-gland dissection in all patients has recently been advocated by a parathyroid surgical group. The current study compares the long-term outcomes of MIP with those of conventional BNE with four-gland dissection in patients with pHPT. Read More

7 Department of Anesthesiology, Kaohsiung Municipal Ta-Tung Hospital, Kaohsiung Municipal Hsiao-Kang Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, College of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University , Kaohsiung, Taiwan .

Background: Intraoperative neural monitoring (IONM) has gained widespread acceptance as an adjunct to the gold standard of visual identification of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) during thyroid surgery. Currently, laryngeal electromyography (EMG) recording during IONM is almost always performed using endotracheal tube (ETT) surface electrodes placed adjacent to vocal folds originating from the inner surface of the thyroid cartilage (TC). Therefore, it was hypothesized that surface recording electrodes placed on the outer surface of the TC should enable access to the EMG response of the vocal folds during IONM. Read More

Does the Technique of Skin Closure Affect the Cosmesis of Cervical Thyroidectomy and Parathyroidectomy Scars? A Review of Literature.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Oct 22;34(5):524-528. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Department of Otolaryngology, University Hospital Lewisham, London, United Kingdom.

The cosmetic outcomes following thyroid and parathyroid surgery is a priority for patients as the surgical scar is in a visible area of the body. Although some have advocated the use of minimally invasive and robotic surgery, these are not without risks and it has been suggested that the scars are not necessarily more favorable. The three most common means of skin closure include the use of subcuticular sutures, clips, and tissue adhesive (with or without deeper subcutaneous sutures) and there are no previous reviews of the published evidence.

[Primary Hyperthyroidism. Minimally invasive video-assisted parathyroidectomy]

Rev Fac Cien Med Univ Nac Cordoba 2017 12 14;74(4):361-364. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

Hospital Nacional de Clínicas - FCM - UNC.

Objective: Show our experience performing the minimally invasive video-assisted parathyroidectomy with central approach for the treatment of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism without using intraoperative parathyroid hormone monitoring (IPTHM) based solely on the concordance of two preoperative localization studies.

Material And Methods: An informed consent for the accomplishment of a minimally invasive approach was performed on 27 selected patients diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism who underwent pre-operative cervical ultrasound and sesta-MIBI scintigraphy studies, which were consistent across them. None had a family history that might indicate a multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN), known thyroid disease, previous neck incision, or suspicion of carcinoma. Read More

Highly specific preoperative selection of solitary parathyroid adenoma cases in primary hyperparathyroidism by quantitative image analysis of the early-phase Technetium-99m sestamibi scan.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Oct 7;62(5):642-648. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

Department of Radiology, Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA.

Introduction: Highly specific preoperative localizing test is required to select patients for minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) in lieu of traditional four-gland exploration. We hypothesized that Tc-99m sestamibi scan interpretation incorporating numerical measurements on the degree of asymmetrical activity from bilateral thyroid beds can be useful in localizing single adenoma for MIP.

Methods: We devised a quantitative interpretation method for Tc-99m sestamibi scan based on the numerically graded asymmetrical activity on early phase. Read More

Robotic Parathyroid Surgery: Current Perspectives and Future Considerations.

ORL J Otorhinolaryngol Relat Spec 2018 22;80(3-4):195-203. Epub 2018 May 22.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, St. Mary's Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, United Kingdom.

Robotic parathyroidectomy represents a novel surgical approach in the treatment of primary hyperparathyroidism when the parathyroid adenoma has been pre-operatively localised. It represents the "fourth generation" in the evolution of parathyroid surgery following a process of surgical evolution from cervicotomy and 4-gland exploration to a variety of minimally invasive, open and endoscopic, targeted approaches. The existing evidence (levels 2-3) supports it as a feasible and safe technique with equivalent results to targeted open parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism in carefully selected patients.

Enhanced visualization of parathyroid glands during video-assisted neck surgery.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2018 May 13;403(3):395-401. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Klinik für Chirurgie und Zentrum für Minimal Invasive Chirurgie, Kliniken Essen-Mitte, Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus der Universität Duisburg-Essen, Henricistrasse 92, 45136, Essen, Germany.

Purpose: Visualization and precise dissection of the parathyroid glands are a crucial step of thyroidectomy. Moreover, identification of parathyroid adenoma in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism can be challenging due to the possible abnormal location of the enlarged parathyroid. Near-infrared fluorescence (NIR) can be adopted during video-assisted neck surgery in addition to standard endoscopic magnification to enhance the visualization of the parathyroid tissue. Read More

Maximum cosmesis for patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: a case for larger incisions.

J Surg Case Rep 2017 Oct 20;2017(10):rjx193. Epub 2017 Oct 20.

Division of Subspecialty General Surgery, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, USA.

While minimally invasive parathyroidectomy is an advantage to many properly selected patients, longer incisions and even wide skin resection may be optimal in a select few. We present an 80-year-old woman with primary hyperparathyroidism and bothersome excess neck skin and subcutaneous fat. The parathyroid adenoma was easily excised through a vertically-oriented cervical excision that removed an ellipse of fat and skin. Read More

Pre-operative localization of abnormal parathyroid tissue by Tc-sestamibi in primary hyperparathyroidism using four-quadrant site analysis: an evaluation of the predictive value of vitamin D deficiency.

Endocrine 2018 04 5;60(1):36-45. Epub 2018 Feb 5.

Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.

Context: Accurate preoperative localization of abnormal parathyroid tissue aids importantly in minimally invasive parathyroidectomy in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Vitamin D deficiency may possibly influence the success and characteristics of pre-operative localization because it is associated with more active disease and possibly larger adenomas. This could increase the sensitivity of the sestamibi to identify abnormal parathyroid tissue, but earlier reports are conflicting. Read More
