Abstract

There are many unanswered questions about how to manage secondary hyperparathyroidism and associated alterations in mineral metabolism in patients with end-stage renal disease. We provide commentary on an observational study by Komaba et al. that presents interesting new insights into the long-standing controversy related to the impact of parathyroidectomy on survival of hemodialysis patients.
