Authors' objectives:

To assess the literature regarding the procedures of minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, in comparison to bilateral open neck exploration in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and make recommendations on the safety and efficacy of the minimally invasive technique.

Authors' recommendations: This review found that the procedure is sufficiently close to a procedure of established safety and efficacy to give no reasonable grounds for questioning safety and efficacy. Procedure may be used subject to continuing audit.
