Hyperparathyroidism is currently one of the most exciting fields in endocrinology. It is under constant development due to extent of the clinical spectrum of primary hyperparathyroidism. In addition, its relationship with other disorders as secondary/tertiary hyperparathyroidism (mainly in the context of chronic renal failure or haemodialysis) and its complications calls for a particularly complex approach and requires evaluation by many specialists.
In the last decade the progress and development of biochemical assays and new imaging techniques has allowed the diagnosis of unsuspected and asymptomatic disease whose therapeutic approach is still in debate (as normocalcemic hyperparathyroidism).
Finally, the progress on minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, intraoperative PTH and radio-guided surgery is changing the paradigm in treatment of hyperparathyroidism.
All these hot spots in endocrinology are addressed in the book that now we present.
This book is the result of the collaboration between worldwide authorities of different specialities and we are grateful to them for the quality of the contributions. The book aims to provide a general but deep view of primary/secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism, from a physiological basis to hyperparathyroidism in hemodialyzed patients, as well as new treatment approaches, techniques and surgical scenarios.
We hope that the medical and paramedical researchers will find this book helpful and stimulating. We look forward to sharing knowledge of hyperparathyroidism with a wider audience.
