European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2022, Volume 9, Issue 3, Pages 302-309
AbstractBackground: In thyroid surgeries, hypocalcemia is a very common complication mainly
because of the similar blood supply to both thyroid and parathyroids Objectives:
measurement of parathormone (PTH) during total thyroidectomy can identify at risk
patients of developing hypocalcaemia.
Materials and Methods: This is a Four-year prospective and cross-sectional study was
conducted in three hospitals i.e Study subjects in which all thyroidectomy patients 18
years or above will be screened for development of hypocalcaemia who met inclusion
criteria was taken up for study during the study period. The study is a time bound study
including all thyroidectomy cases done from October 2017 to August 2021 which
included a total of 62 patients.
