Parathyroid gland transplantation into the sternocleidomastoid muscle is effective, but it is not possible to confirm transplant survival with this method. In this study, we evaluated parathyroid autotransplantation into the brachioradialis muscle and evaluated the factors associated with short- (up to 6 months) and long-term survival (up to 3 years).
1.1. Objectives: To evaluate autologous parathyroid gland left forearm brachioradialis muscle transplantation and analyze the factors related to transplant survival.
1.2. Methods: We followed-up patients who underwent thyroidectomy and autologous parathyroid left forearm brachioradialis muscle transplantation in our center from September 2013 to January 2018. all enrolled patients underwent at least 3 years of follow-up. We calculated the transplant survival rate at several time points and analyzed the factors related to survival.
