Some 170 patients having total thyroidectomy were included. After using overhead (white) light, assessment with near-infrared autofluorescence increased the number of parathyroid glands detected: 3.5 versus 2.6 (P<0.001), and revealed at least one missed gland in 67% of procedures. The rate of postoperative hypocalcaemia was reduced.Pubmed Link
