Objectives: Persistent hyperparathyroidism can have a deleterious effect on graft function in kidney transplant recipients, although serum calcium, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone levels tend to normalize after successful transplant. Parathyroidectomy can result in sustained amelioration of persistent hyperparathyroidism despite graft failure risk and unfavorable graft outcomes. Data on this issue are limited and conflicting. Here, we evaluated the effects of parathyroidectomy on graft function in kidney transplant recipients.
