Proportion of patients in high and low risk groups developing hypocalcemia: Patients who developed hypocalcemia in the high risk group (5/31) were identified as being likely to develop hypocalcemia, but failed to adequately respond to the initial oral prophylactic calcium and vitamin D supplementation. Patients who developed hypocalcemia in the low risk group are those who were inaccurately categorized by our PTH cut-off (2/94). All the patients who developed hypocalcemia had only mild symptoms. There were no serious sequelae in any patients.
