[Endocrine Practice, 2011, Ishay, parathyroidectomy, DBP, CVD]
- study to evaluate effect of parathyroidectomy on metabolic abnormalities associated with CVD
- 34 Pt with HPT and 40 control patients with normal calcium assessed at baseline and 1 year later. HPT patients had parathyroidectomy
- significant decrease in DBP and insulin. significant increase in spine BMD
- no significant change in metabolic syndrome rate, insulin resistance, or likelihood of CVD risk
