Evaluation of left ventricular functions in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: is there any effect of parathyroidectomy?

Our aim was to evaluate left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic functions of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) patients with detailed echocardiographic analysis and investigate the effect of parathyroidectomy on echocardiographic parameters.


A total of 22 eligible consecutive patients with pHPT who underwent parathyroidectomy operation were recruited to the study. Another 22 subjects with similar age, gender and frequency of cardiovascular risk factors compared to patients were used as a control group. Echocardiographic parameters of patients scheduled for parathyroidectomy were compared to healthy matched controls. Echocardiographic parameters measured 6 months after the operation were also compared with preoperative values for each patient.
