Hearing Conservation with Conventional Cochlear Implantation
Presenters: Matthew Carlson, MD; Rene Gifford, PhD; Nicole Tombers, BS; Colin Driscoll, MD
Time: 8:16 am
Location: Room 259

Boston, MA Conservation of acoustic hearing following conventional long electrode cochlear implantation (CI) is unpredictable but remains a realistic goal. The combination of improved technology and refined surgical technique may allow for conservation of some residual hearing in over 60 percent of patients.

In a presentation at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers discussed data for 292 implant patients who underwent CI with a newer generation implant model (Nucleus N24 Contour series or later, Advanced Bionics HR90K, and Med El Sonata). Pre- and post-implant audiometric thresholds and speech recognition scores were recorded.

Adenotonsillectomy: A Risk Factor for Obesity?
Presenters: Anita Jeyakumar, MD; Nicholas Fettman, MD; Ron Mitchell, MD
Time: 8:00 am
Location: Room 254

Boston, MA A large population of normal and overweight children undergoing T&A gained a greater than expected amount of weight postoperatively, which may suggest that (adeno) tonsillectomy is indeed a risk factor for developing obesity.

In a presentation at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers discussed their findings regarding patients who underwent an adenotonsillectomy, and had pre- and postoperative weight or body mass index measurements, as reported in the literature from 1970 to 2009. Results indicated that (adeno) tonsillectomy is indeed a risk factor for developing obesity.
