Özet

Introduction: It has been shown that epicardial fat tissue (EFT) thickness in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is increased and that this is closely associated with cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. However, EFT thickness in patients with hyperparathyroidism who were treated with parathyroidectomy has not yet been studied. In this study we aimed to examine whether carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and EFT thickness would be affected after treatment of PHPT by parathyroidectomy.
