Introduction: Recently, patients are discharged home between 6 to 24 hours after thyroidectomy.The safety of this method in geriatric patients is not clear. Our aim is to investigate the effect of preoperative demographic characteristics on respiratory and cardiovascular complications after total thyroidectomy in geriatric patients who are over 65 years.
