A randomised double blind clinical trial, accepted by the Medical Products Agency and registered in the European Clinical Trials Database. Aims to evaluate the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in a pHPT population in relation to gender and age, the correlation between vitamin D status, pre- and postoperative parathyroid hormone level and bone density and the correlation between vitamin D status, metabolic, cardiovascular risk factors and QoL aspects before and after parathyroid adenomectomy.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

This study will evaluate whether blocking the mineralocorticoid receptor, alone, or in combination with the calcimimetic cinacalcet, can lower parathyroid hormone and calcium levels in pri...
Severe Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) has been associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Hypertension, dyslipidemia and impaired glucose tolerance were demonstra...
Vaginitis is the most common gynecologic diagnosis in the primary care setting. In approximately 90 percent of affected women, this condition occurs secondary to bacterial vaginosis, vulvo...
This is a research study to investigate cardiovascular health in people with mild hyperparathyroidism. Previous research has suggested that severe hyperparathyroidism may be associated wit...
Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity. The benefit of surgical treatment in this respect is unclear. This study was performed to evaluat...
The multi-phase or four-dimensional computed tomography (4D CT) has emerged as a promising technique for preoperative localization of parathyroid lesions in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (...
Hyperparathyroidism is associated with hypercalcemia and the excess of parathyroid hormone secretion. However, the alterations in molecular pattern of functional genes during parathyroid tumorigenesis...
Primary hyperparathyroidism is one of the most common endocrine diseases, however, it is rare in children. In most cases, it is caused by adenoma of these organs. Its most common complications include...
The purpose of this review is to describe recent advances and changes in the evaluation and management of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).
Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and thyroid diseases are highly prevalent in the general population, but the putative link between the 2 conditions remains unclear.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE due to parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. It is characterized by the combination of HYPERCALCEMIA, phosphaturia, elevated renal 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis, and increased BONE RESORPTION.
A plant genus of the family ANACARDIACEAE that is the source of anacarcin forte. The nut milk extract is cytotoxic.
A fibrous degeneration, cyst formation, and the presence of fibrous nodules in bone, usually due to HYPERPARATHYROIDISM.
Abnormally elevated PARATHYROID HORMONE secretion as a response to HYPOCALCEMIA. It is caused by chronic KIDNEY FAILURE or other abnormalities in the controls of bone and mineral metabolism, leading to various BONE DISEASES, such as RENAL OSTEODYSTROPHY.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
