Primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) is a common disease, in the majority of cases determined by a single solitary parathyroid adenoma; it is more frequently encountered among older women, between 50-60 years. Due to advances in imaging, preoperative localization of the hyperfunctioning or enlarged gland is almost always possible. In this perspective the classic bilateral neck exploration shifted to limited (focused) surgical approaches i.e. minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP). The aim of this study is to do a short literature review of MIP surgical techniques and to present the surgical procedure we have used, along with our initial experience, respectively.
