Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The use of endoscopic surgical procedures has rapidly spread to abdominal and thoracic surgeries and subsequently to surgeries of the neck region. Several surgeons initiated endoscopic parathyroidectomy using CO2 insufflation to create the working space; however, they reported various complications. We describe here a skin-lifting method that may have few complications. METHODS: A 65-year-old man was diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism due to a solitary adenoma of the left inferior parathyroid gland. A 3-cm oblique incision was made below the left clavicle, and a 5-mm incision was made on the lateral neck. After the skin was lifted up, we performed video-assisted parathyroidectomy. RESULTS: Parathyroid extirpation took 2 hours and blood loss was minimal. The patient had minimal pain and no complications postoperatively. Serum concentrations of calcium and intact parathyroid hormone were normalized on the next day. CONCLUSION: Using the skin-lifting method, we obtained a sufficient operative view and encountered no complications. This procedure is cosmetically desirable, and we consider it a feasible alternative for the treatment of parathyroid adenoma.
