Patients undergoing surgery for primary hyperparathyroidism experience a lower fracture incidence.
As many individuals have minor disease, the need for surgery in primary hyperparathyroidism has been debated.

Investigating whether preoperative serum calcium, adenoma weight, or poly glandular disease affect fracture incidence was the secondary goal.Author(s): Karl Nadolsky
