Abstract

Background: Primary Hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is associated with an increased mortality risk of cardiovascular disease, and this appears to decrease with time after parathyroidectomy. Our study aimed to determine the association between endothelial function, Carotid Artery Intima Media Thickness (CIMT), and Flow Mediated Dilatation (FMD) in hyperparathyroidism and their effects on cardiovascular disease.
