We performed retrospective, multi-center study of the impacts of parathyroidectomy (PTX) after or before kidney transplantation on allograft outcomes. A total of 63 patients who underwent PTX after kidney transplantation were identified. Deterioration in eGFR by more than 25% at 1 month after PTX occurred in 20% of the patients. The baseline eGFR was significantly lower in impairment group than nonimpairment group [adjusted odds ratio (OR) 0.87, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.77-0.99, P = 0.033]. Low iPTH concentration after PTX was also a significant risk factor for the renal impairment (OR 0.96, CI 0.94-0.99, P = 0.009). A total of 37 patients who underwent PTX before transplantation were identified. Thirty-six percent of the patients had persistent hyperparathyroidism by 1 year after transplantation. A high iPTH level before PTX was a significant risk factor for persistent post-transplant hyperparathyroidism (adjusted OR 1.002, CI 1.000-1.005, P = 0.039). Finally, eGFR values during the first 5 years after transplantation were significantly lower in the patients who underwent PTX at less than 1 year after transplantation, than the pretransplant PTX patients (P = 0.032). As PTX after kidney transplantation has a risk of deterioration of allograft function, pretransplant PTX should be considered for patients with severe hyperparathyroidism, who could undergo post-transplant PTX.
