Abstract

Overall rates of mortality and any morbidity were low and consistent with previous reports. Based on adjusted OR, there was no significant difference in outcomes for thyroid versus parathyroid operation. Similarly, there was no apparent significant difference in surgical outcomes between the VA and private-sector groups after risk adjustment.
