Abstract

Letter: To the Editor:

We read with great interest the article by Chen Y et al. [1] recently published in Obesity Surgery, which retrospectively investigated all patients with the diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and previous Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP). They found ten cases since 2000, and four patients did not have their calcium normalized after the cervical operation.
