Özet

BACKGROUND: Hypocalcemia Caused by transient or definitive hypoparathyroidism is the most frequent complication after thyroidectomy. We aimed to compare the impact of incidental parathyroidectomy and serum vitamin D(3) level on postoperative hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy (TT) or near total thyroidectomy (NTT).
