The additional use of near-infrared autofluorescence light to identify parathyroid glands during total thyroidectomy in this study that included 245 procedures reduced the rate of temporary postoperative hypocalcaemia from 21.7 to 9.1 per cent (P=0.007). Permanent hypocalcaemia rates were similar: none versus 1 .6 per cent, respectively).Pubmed Link
