Hyperparathyroidism is one of the most common endocrine disorders, which is known to present with protean manifestations, thereby, leading to misdiagnosis in the initial stages of the disease.
Parathyroidectomy is the only available cure, which has evolved significantly over the past century from open, minimally invasive to video assisted parathyroidectomy.
Transvestibular and transaxillary endoscopic parathyroidectomies can usher an era of scarless and pain-free surgery.
This video explains the two approaches in detail and highlights the criteria for deciding the approach in endoscopic parathyroidectomy for different patient profiles.
