  1. Surgical correction of primary hyperparathyroidism improves quality of life.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. Orlando, FL, USA, 1998/04/26.

    Background

    The SF-36 health status assessment tool is well suited for measuring the morbidity associated with primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT).

    The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that surgical correction of primary HPT leads to measurable improvement in patient reported functional health status and well-being.

    Methods

    For the past 4 years patients with primary HPT have been asked to complete the SF-36 and to provide additional demographic and condition-specific information for study before operation.

    They then completed the SF-36 again by mail 2 months and 6 months after operation.

    Results

    One hundred forty patients entered the study through March 1998 ; 110 patients completed follow-up at 2 months and 82 at 6 months.

    Marked impairment compared to population norms occurred before operation in 7 of 8 domains of health status.

    Substantial improvement occurred in 5 of 8 domains of health status at 2 months and in 6 of 8 domains at 6 months.

    Statistically significant improvement was demonstrated in limitations caused by physical and emotional role function, social function, bodily pain, and vitality.

    Conclusions

    Successful operation to correct primary HPT significantly improves patient reported funetional health status and quality of life.

    Most improvement is seen within 2 months, but additional improvement in both physical and mental function is seen at 6 months.
