Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a condition that can be caused by kidney disease. It happens when your kidneys can’t filter out waste products the right way. This leads to too much parathyroid hormone in your blood. Cinacalcet (sin-a-KAL-cet) is a medicine used to lower the level of parathyroid hormone in your blood. This will help to balance your calcium and phosphorous levels. Sensipar® is a brand name for cinacalcet. How to take this medicine and what side effects to watch for are reviewed.

Abstract
Comprised exclusively of clinical cases involving hyperparathyroidism, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians in endocrinology with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the condition they may encounter. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate primary, secondary and tertiary forms of hyperparathyroidism, as well as HPT as a comorbid or co-existing condition and as a result of treatment of other conditions. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Hyperparathyroidism: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for endocrinologists and family medicine physicians alike.

Abstract
This practice-oriented book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the history, surgical anatomy, etiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and treatment of primary, secondary, and tertiary hyperparathyroidism. The coverage is wide ranging, encompassing, for example, innovations in both medical and surgical treatment, current indications for parathyroidectomy, the role and performance of minimally invasive surgery, the value of intraoperative parathyroid hormone monitoring, and guidance on reoperations. Individual chapters are devoted to particular conditions and disease settings, including multiple endocrine neoplasia types 1 and 2 and parathyroid carcinoma, with provision of information on genetic testing, clinical manifestations, and therapy. All aspects of secondary hyperparathyroidism in predialysis and dialysis patients are discussed. The book is endorsed by the Italian Society of Surgery. It will be of great value for endocrine surgeons and endocrinologists and will also be of interest to specialists in internal medicine, nephrologists, urologists, gynecologists, and radiologists.
