TOP Doctors for Surgery on Parathyroid Adenoma
The parathyroid glands are small organs that are more or less close to the thyroid and regulate the calcium metabolism of the body. Regulation takes place via the parathyroid hormone, the so-called parathyroid hormone.
Parathyroid surgery is usually required when there is overproduction of the parathyroid hormone. If this overproduction is caused, for obvious reasons, by enlargement of the parathyroid glands, the resulting disease is referred to as primary hyperparathyroidism. Here, either only one gland (about 80 percent) or two glands (about two percent) or all four glands (17 percent) may be affected. Almost always, the disease is benign, in rare cases, there is a hereditary burden. Depending on the number of diseased glands, different surgical procedures are chosen.
The operation of the parathyroid glands always takes place under general anesthesia. To avoid dysfunction of the vocal cord nerves, the vocal cord nerves are visualized and the function checked by a stimulation device (neuromonitoring). The examinations (ultrasonography, scintigraphy) performed before the surgery allow the surgeon to target the enlarged parathyroid adenoma in the case of primary hyperparathyroidism and, in the case of positive localization diagnostics, to remove it completely. During the operation, 15 minutes after removal of the adenoma, a laboratory determination of the parathyroid hormone value, which must have dropped to 10-20% of the baseline value before the operation, is performed. After an additional confirmation of the diagnosis of a distant parathyroid adenoma by a pathologist (rapid-cut examination), the operation is terminated. Removal of a parathyroid adenoma can also be done in selected cases as minimally invasive video-assisted surgery (MIVAP). An individual discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the individual surgical procedures takes place during our consultation or before the operation on ward with the responsible ward physician.
If there is a secondary or tertiary hyperfunction of the parathyroid glands, all 4 parathyroid glands are surgically visualized and removed. To maintain calcium metabolism, half the parathyroid gland is replanted into the lower leg.
