Video-assisted right parathyroidectomy for parathyroid adenoma

Epublication WebSurg.com, Sep 2004;04(09). URL:
This video demonstrates a routine video-assisted parathyroidectomy. The surgeon uses a 1.5 cm midline neck incision to identify the key structures including the carotid artery, the recurrent laryngeal nerve and the parathyroid adenoma. The middle thyroid vessels are divided and the parathyroid adenoma is mobilized, and the vessels are clipped and divided to remove the adenoma. An intraoperative blood assay confirms that the adenoma has been adequately removed.
