Wisconsin Endocrine Society Meeting 2015
Address both hypoparathyroidism, both surgical and non-surgical. Since more extensive surgery has become more common for thyroid carcinoma, the frequency of post-surgical hypoparathyroidism has increased. These patients can be very difficult to treat. The FDA has recently approved parathyroid hormone (Natpara) for treatment. There is a knowledge gap in understanding when to use this treatment as compared to conventional treatment with vitamin D analogs. Understand the risks of recommending and practice patterns of central neck dissections for thyroid carcinoma with respect to hypoparathyroidism. Recognize the difficulty in treating this problem. Reduce the knowledge gap with respect to appreciating the risks of hyperparathyroidism and treatment options.
