Data are mean ± SD. PTX, parathyroidectomy; mean NN, mean normal-to-normal R–R intervals; SDNN, SD of normal-to-normal R–R intervals; SDANN, SD of 5-minute average of normal R–R intervals; rMSSD, root mean square of differences between adjacent normal R–R intervals; pNN50%, proportion of adjacent R–R intervals differing by >50 ms over 24 hours; VLF, very low frequency; LF, low frequency; HF, high frequency.

↵a Patients were followed up for a median period of 5.0 months.

↵b Patients were followed up for a median period of 2.3 months.
