female) underwent total (77.2%) or completion (22.7%) thyroidectomy, with or without node dissection (42.2% minimally invasive, video-assisted). Seventy-six percent (137/180) of patients had a PTH _20, meeting PTH discharge criterion. Sixty-nine percent of those eligible (95/137) were discharged the same day (53.1% of total). Of the 95 patients undergoing outpatient surgery, none were admitted, seen, or called with symptoms of hypocalcemia.

Auditory Changes in Mobile Users: Is Evidence Forthcoming?
Presenters: Rahul Modi; Ramandeep Virk; Sanjay Munjal
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Room 259

Boston, MA A prospective case control study was carried out in a tertiary care hospital from July 2008 to December 2009. The study revealed that of 125 subjects who were long-term mobile users (at least one year of use), 63 used GSM and 62 CDMA phones. Another 58 subjects who acted as controls had never used any mobile phone.

In a paper at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers revealed long-term and intensive GSM and CDMA mobile phone use may cause damage to cochlea as well as the auditory cortex.

Location: Room 259

Boston, MA The association between obesity and the risk for soft tissue BAHA complications can increase a person's risk for complications during surgery.

In a paper at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers revealed that of 71 patients who met inclusion criteria, one-third were clinically obese. Follow-up time averaged 2.3 years. The incidence of soft tissue overgrowth requiring revision surgery was 6.5 percent in the non-obese cohort and 28.6 percent in the obese group.

The authors concluded that obesity confers an increased risk for soft ti
