2010 AAO-HNSF miniseminars: Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2010
Date:9/28/2010

nnual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, by 2030, 20 percent of the population will be 65 or older and will experience some form of hearing loss (presbycusis).

Presbycusis contributes to social isolation, loss of autonomy, and is associated with depression and cognitive decline. Historically, treatment has consisted primarily of hearing aids. However, only 20 percent of the elderly who could benefit from amplification purchase hearing aids, and of this subgroup, only 60 percent use them regularly.

From their findings, the authors conclude that cochlear implants play a role in management of older patients with severe hearing loss, and have the potential to preserve residual hearing.

Location: Room 257

Boston, MA Medullary thyroid carcinoma is a neuroendocrine malignancy (thyroid cancer) whose diagnosis and treatment differs significantly from well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma.

In a paper presented at the 2010 American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, MA, researchers revealed that surgeons performing thyroidectomy must be familiar with the unique diagnostic, treatment, and follow-up paradigms for medullary thyroid cancer to optimize outcomes.

The researchers note that it is important for health professionals to be familiar with the American Thyroid Association's Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma Management Guidelines, published in 2009, with more than 100 evidence-based recommendations for patients with medullary thyroid cancer.
