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.

Further study details as provided by Nantes University Hospital:

Primary Outcome 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 Outcome 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 ]
