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.

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.

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
