Evaluation of Non Specific Symptoms and Quality of Life Before and After Surgery for Mild Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Overview

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the evolution of the non specific symptoms for 116 patients with mild primary hyperparathyroidism before and 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. A clinical score predicting clinical improvement at one year will be created.

Full Title of Study: “A Prospective, Non Randomized, Open, Multicenter Trial to Evaluate Non Specific Symptoms and Quality of Life (SF 36) Before and After Surgery for Mild Primary Hyperparathyroidism”

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • assessment of the evolution of neuropsychic disorders, digestive disorders, asthenia and polydipsia symptoms (non specific symptoms) one year after surgery for patients with moderate HPTI.
    • Time Frame: one year after surgery

Secondary Measures

  • Evaluation of the quality of life with a quality of life questionnaire (SF36) given preoperatively and at months 3, 6, 12
    • Time Frame: preoperatively and at months 3, 6, 12
  • evaluation of the evolution of neuropsychic disorders, digestive disorders, asthenia and polydipsia symptoms (non specific symptoms) at months 3 and 6
    • Time Frame: at months 3 and 6
