Incidence of hypoparathyroidism after radical surgery for thyroid carcinoma and autotransplantation of parathyroid glands

American Journal of Surgery
H Salander, L E Tisell


Ninety-seven consecutive patients had radical surgery for thyroid carcinoma. Eighty-six of these had one or more parathyroids implanted into muscle tissue. At follow-up, ninety-one patients were normocalcemic without substitution, fifteen of those with only implanted glands. The results show that radical surgery can be performed with a low incidence of hypoparathyroidism, provided the parathyroids are carefully searched for and liberally implanted.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
