P081 Minimally Invasive Parathyroidectomy Under Local Anesthetic: Patient Satisfaction and Outcome

P081 Minimally Invasive Parathyroidectomy Under Local Anesthetic: Patient Satisfaction and Outcome Objective: To assess postoperative outcomes and overall patient satisfaction with minimally invasive single-gland parathyroidectomy performed under local anesthesia. Design: Prospective longitudinal cohort. Setting: Tertiary level care referral center. Methods: Twenty patients were enrolled. Patients filled out a patient satisfaction survey immediately after surgery, 4 hours after surgery, and at the time of discharge. Postoperative parameters measured were analgesic consumption, nausea, vomiting, headache, sore throat, and hospital stay. These were compared with historical controls who underwent parathyroidectomy under general anesthesia. Results: Patients experienced less pain and fewer postanesthesia adverse effects than controls. Patients had an overall high rate of satisfaction with their surgical experience. Conclusions: Minimally invasive single-gland parathyroidectomy under local anesthesia is an excellent option for patients. They experience less pain and fewer postanesthesia adverse effects than with the general anesthesia method. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery American Medical Association
