Combined transcervical and thoracoscopic mediastinal parathyroid adenoma resection

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The routine approach for excision of a parathyroid adenoma is transcervical, but this approach is inadequate when the gland is located in the mediastinum. Traditionally, these cases have required a sternotomy or thoracotomy. We used a combined transcervical and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery approach to resect a parathyroid adenoma that extended to the middle mediastinum.
