Abstract

Robot-Assisted Mediastinal Parathyroidectomy: Collaboration Between Otolaryngology and Thoracic Surgery

There are only a few cases in the literature describing roboticassisted mediastinal parathyroidectomy. Herein, we present the largest cohort of patients (N=7) treated with roboticassisted mediastinal parathyroidectomy. All patients showed biochemical resolution of disease and no major complications were encountered. In our experience, robotic-assisted mediastinal parathyroidectomy is safe and effective in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism when performed in collaboration by experienced and robotically trained thoracic and head and neck surgeons.

Keywords: Robot, Mediastinum; Parathyroid; Primary hyperparathyroidism
