Session 56 – BSO Symposium: Cochlear Implants

The symposium on Cochlear implants offers a concise 1 hour update on this exciting area of ENT and will be of interest to all trainees and any ENT surgeons managing patients with hearing loss or an interest in technology .

The session will start with a succinct presentation on the latest developments in this fast moving field including an update on new technology such as electro-acoustic and brainstem implants and new indications for referral for cochlear implantation such as in ski-slope hearing loss, single sided deafness and tinnitus.

This will be followed by presentations on managing topical issues in cochlear implant surgery including Hearing preservation surgery, Re-implantation and managing variations in Cochlea size.

The session will conclude with a panel discussion with the opportunity for the audience members to ask the panel about cochlear implant topics.

The speakers and panel members are all leading Otologists and Cochlear Implant surgeons.

Session 79 – BSO Specialty Keynote: Hearing Loss Through The Ages

The BSO keynote session should be one of the highlights of the BSO and indeed the BACO programme. We are delighted to have Frank Lin from Johns Hopkins to tell us about his work on the affects of hearing loss on the elderly and the benefits of hearing rehabilitation. The excellent work he has done justifies so much of what we aim to do. Gerry O’Donoghue will tell us about his work looking at global hearing health needs and what we should be doing about it. Then we will look at the pathology of chronic otitis media and future treatment methods. Finally we will get an update on the long running and excellent Avon longitudinal children’s cohort study which is beginning to throw light on the pathogenesis of chronic otitis media.

The speakers are some of the best in business and this should be a lively and informative session. Not to be missed!
