dations was low. Given the poor patient compliance and significant impact of voice rest on voice-related QOL, further studies are warranted to examine the efficacy of voice rest, as well as factors that may contribute to patient non-compliance with voice rest recommendations.


Cochlear Implantation Using Thin Film Array Electrodes
Presenters: Kenneth Iverson, MD; Pamela Bhatti, PhD; Jessica Falcone, BS; Brian McKinnon, MD, MBA
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Room 254

Boston, MA Current limitations in language perception may stem from an inability to provide high resolution sound input. Thin film array technology allows for a greater density of stimulating sites within the limited diameter of the scala tympani. This study examines the use of a flexible carrier to achieve adequate depth of insertion.

In a presentation at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers revealed ten thin film array electrodes were successfully implanted into 10 individual temporal bones via round window (5) and cochleostomy (5) approaches. Thin film array electrodes coupled with an ITD were successfully inserted into the human cochlea, with limited trauma.


Intraoperative Use of OCT in Endocrine Surgery
Presenters: William B. Armstrong, MD; Kaveh Naemi, DO; Suzanne Keel, MD; Brian Wong, MD, PhD; Jason H Kim, MD
Time: 10:46 am
Location: Room 259AB

Boston, MA The study attempted to determine the feasibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to image and identify thyroid and parathyroid glands, fat, and lymph nodes in the neck during endocrine surgery. OCT is a high resolution optical imaging modality that generates cross-sectional views. in turbid media such as living tissue, with resolution approaching that of light microscopy. OCT relies upon intrinsic differences in tissue optical properties for image contrast.
