1. Caroline Bradbury-Jones




Session Description:
This session explores the complex arena of patient and public involvement. The session covers crucial matters of equity, governance and impact. It flows through from explaining what is meant by public involvement, how it is conceptualised and theorised, and how it is enacted in practice. Consideration is given to what public involvement means in the context of global research, where the term community engagement and involvement may be more appropriate. Drawing on examples from real world research, the complexity of researching with children, young people and marginalised populations is discussed. A core element of the presentation is on a particular form of public involvement - co-research. A framework for safe and meaningful involvement in co-research is presented. The framework takes six key challenges and poses counter-challenges and solutions. The session will appeal to delegates who want to learn about frameworks for supporting patient and public involvement and how to embed involvement activities within their own research projects. The focus on co-research will be of interest to those who use, or propose to use, this form of public involvement.

Session Description: 
Our eminent speakers will showcase the latest innovations in the field of voice, airway and swallowing management. This is now more relevant than ever as the COVID-19 pandemic affected every aspect of our practice. Virtual clinics and telly medicine became part of our everyday practice. Running a dysphagia and voice service without the benefit of patient examination and endoscopic evaluation proved to be a significant challenge for most laryngologists. Another development in the field over the last few years has been the move to deliver laryngology service in the outpatient's clinic. Office based procedures revolutionised the way we approach our management.

1. Innovation: Mucosal melanoma - The role of immunotherapy - Lisha McClelland
2. Mucosal melanoma - The role of immunotherapy - Neil Steven



Moderator: Lisha McClelland
Session Description:
A decade of rapid development has given us effective systemic therapy tools for melanoma. Targeted agents can rapidly shrink V600 BRAF-mutated melanoma. Checkpoint inhibitors turn the ignition (anti-CTLA4) and release the brakes (anti-PD-1) of the immune machine causing durable disease control. However, the recent Melanoma Focus management guidelines https://melanomafocus.com/activities/mucosal-guidelines/mucosal-melanoma-resources/, drew largely on case series not trials, and derived evidence from cutaneous melanoma (CM), in advising on systemic therapy for the rare mucosal melanoma (MM) variants. Overall, the challenge is to offer least morbid surgery to achieve clear margins. Adjuvant radiotherapy should be considered if there is a high risk of local recurrence. The expanding evidence supporting adjuvant BRAF-targeted therapy or anti-PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy for CM is extrapolated to MM. In the palliative setting, few MM have targetable BRAF mutations. Immune checkpoint inhibition gives response rates ~20% for anti-PD-1 monotherapy and ~40% for anti-PD-1 and anti-CTLA4 combination. However, response and progression free survival is less than for CM. Underpinning this are critical variations in the molecular biology of melanoma. The ultraviolet-driven high mutation burden of many CM may be key to both their targetable mutations and their immunogenicity but is lacking in MM. There is a critical need for prospective observational and interventional research to improve treatments.

1. Bhasker Ram
Session Description:
Facial pain remains a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for both clinicians and patients. In clinical practice, patients suffering from facial pain generally undergo multiple repeated consultations with different specialists and receive various treatments, including surgery. Many patients, as well as their primary care physicians, mistakenly attribute their pain as being due to rhinosinusitis when this is not the case. It is important to exclude non-sinus-related causes of facial pain before considering sinus surgery to avoid inappropriate treatment. The aim of this presentation is  to clarify the diagnostic criteria of facial pain in order to improve discrimination between sinogenic and non-sinogenic facial pain and provide some clinical and diagnostic criteria that may help clinicians in addressing differential diagnosis.

Learning Objectives:
1.    A case based approach to aid diagnosis and management of facial pain.
2.    Evidence based approach in the management of facial pain.
3.    Recognize the signs and symptoms that could suggest facial pain is a   
       manifestation of a life-threatening illness.
4.    Understand the pharmacological, surgical, and multidisciplinary treatments of 
       and facial pain.
5.    Understand the novel treatments available for management of facial pain.
6.    Use of facial pain algorithm which would aid in treating patients in the 
       outpatient setting.

1. Diagnosing synaptopathy - Brian Moore
2. Diagnosing poorer cochlea implant electrode regions for remapping - Debi Vickers
3. Measuring cochlea health with a cochlea implant towards a future trial of stem cell treatment - Douglas Hartley


Moderator: Richard Anthony
Session Description:
Only by beginning to understand the functional correlates of the array of microscopic pathologies within the complex but beautiful ultrastructure of the cochlea can we develop more targeted and novel therapies. Groundbreaking research and insights into measuring these functional correlates is presented by our distinguished panel of speakers.

Measuring cochlea health with a cochlea implant towards a future trial of stem cell treatment: Hearing loss arising from neural damage, including cochlear dead regions and auditory neuropathy, is associated with poor cochlear implant outcomes. In the future this deficit could be treated using stem-cells as an adjunct to cochlear implantation. To assess the safety and efficacy of such a novel therapy, I will discuss the use of a cochlear implant to measure cochlear health.

Diagnosing poorer cochlea implant electrode regions for re-mapping: A wide range of performance is observed across cochlear implant users.  We aim to understand this variance using electrophysiological and behavioural measures of neural dead regions and sub-cortical/cortical transmission limits.   The goal is to identify the site of lesion for underlying problems from auditory nerve to cortex to inform re-mapping, signal processing adaptations or auditory training interventions.

Diagnosing synaptopathy: Noise exposure and increasing age often lead to a loss of synapses between inner hair cells and auditory neurons, an effect that is not revealed by the audiogram unless it is extreme. The possible perceptual consequences of this “hidden hearing disorder” will be discussed and potential tests for diagnosing it will be described.

1. Caudal septoplasty - Mr Shahram Anari
2. The ethmoid plate in the nasal septum - Miss Pei Pei Cheang



Moderator: Natarajan Balaji
Session Description:
Septoplasty is considered as the commonest "Nasal Valve surgery" performed to improve the Nasal function. Adequate correction of the nasal septal deformity is the key for a successful rhinoplasty and tip-plasty. To achieve consistent optimum outcomes in Septal surgery can be difficult and demanding. Caudal septum is composed of cartilage which supports the tip cartilages in the midline. Any deformity of the caudal septum can have a profound effect on the position and support of the nasal tip. Posterior nasal septum is bony and together with the dorsal bony septum determines the dorsal profile line support in the central “K” area. Correcting bony septum has its own challenges. Apart from commonly performed septoplasty surgery, there are various other techniques available to straighten and support a damaged septum. Thus, getting the septum straight can be extremely challenging and I am delighted to be the chair for this session on “Difficult Nasal Septum” where we have two leading facial plastic surgeons from the UK, Mr Anari and Miss Cheang, sharing their experiences with us in correcting both anterior and posterior septal deviations. Mr Anari is a Consultant Rhinologist and Facial Plastic Surgeon based at the Birmingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and he will be speaking first on “Caudal septal correction”. This lecture will be followed by Miss Cheang, Consultant Facial Plastic Surgeon based at Turnbridge Wells. She will be talking on “Correcting the posterior bony septal deformities”.

1. Dealing with meningoceles and cholesterol granulomas - Peter Monksfield
2. Managing petrous apex cholesteatoma and facial nerve injuries - Rupert Obholzer



Moderator: Georgios Kontorinis
Session Decription:
The present session aims at giving a detailed, up-to-date overview of the commonest non-oncologic skull base pathologies with a special focus on the diagnostic batteries and the management options. Among others, we will discuss the recommended diagnostics and available treatment options for meningoceles, cholesterol granulomas, petrous apex/ congenital cholesteatoma and facial nerve trauma/ decompression. Two state of the art presentations will be followed by a 'provocative' round table on challenging cases, where we will explore the best diagnostic approaches as well as the management of such cases. To operate or not? What to do when things go wrong? These cases should trigger a debate to emphasise the challenge of decision making and serve as the ground for a constructive discussion with meaningful outcomes.

1. Management of equivocal PET CT result post CRT - Paul Nankivell
2. Recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring - Greg Randolph
3. New treatments for recurrent metastic HNC - Emma King


Moderator: Emma King  
Session Description:
First, Paul Nankivell will talk about the ‘Management of equivocal PET CT result post CRT’. Despite the PETNECK trial, uncertainty remains over the management of equivocal imaging post treatment. His talk will explore the evidence around the management of equivocal PETCT scans post treatment, both using the PETNECK trial data, and studies published subsequently on whether patients with equivocal post treatment PETCT scans require a neck dissection or can be managed differently to the PETNECK protocol. Next, Greg Randolph will use his extensive experience to talk about all aspects of laryngeal nerve monitoring. Finally, Emma King will talk about ‘New treatments for recurrent metastatic Head and Neck cancer.’ She will outline the basic science behind immunotherapies, give an overview of the treatment options available and describe potential therapies in the development pipeline.

1. In-house techniques to optimise reconstruction - Sat Parmar
2. Mandibular reconstruction: A tale of two flaps - Eben Rosenthal
3. Principles of reconstruction - Nitin Padegar


Moderator: Nitin Padegar 
Session Description:
Reconstruction is critical to treatment outcomes after surgery for head and neck cancer. The best-planned salvage or primary ablative operation most often relies on an equally complex reconstructive plan. Although the details of the planned repair should not drive those of the resection, it is critical that ablative surgeons be versed in reconstruction. Which options are available? What are the limitations of those choices? What critical steps and important decisions are to be made? What resources should the multidisciplinary team, operating suite, and community arrange to optimise outcomes for the patients of today and populations of tomorrow? This symposium on head and neck reconstruction will touch on those questions.  After a brief introduction, two of the world's experts on head and neck reconstruction present discussions of reconstructive topics based on their experience. Dr Eben Rosenthal will discuss free flap options for mandible reconstruction. Mr Sat Parmar discusses planning techniques to optimise outcomes in complex cases. The panelists will then relate to the audience their opinions about two reconstructive cases.

4. The role of the training programmme director and concluding comments - Jaydip Ray

Moderator: Valerie Lund
Session Description:
Prompted by changes in the importance of research during training, this session is very topical and 'essential viewing' for all concerned. Manish George will discuss 'Research and the trainee perspective' giving a broad overview of trainee attitudes to research, with AOT input, including perceived barriers and possible facilitators. Caroline Anderson's topic is 'Academic training and research - trials and tribulations of funding, supervision, governance, training and time management conflicts.' She will cover different pathways, both formal and informal, that can be taken into academic ENT, tying this to funding, and how to balance training, service provision and research. Peter Prinsley's talk 'Research is not just for Registrars; my MD at 60!' will emphasise the importance of this as a brilliant antidote to burnout for the mature surgeon, keeping one curious and engaged with one's career. Finally, Professor Jaydip Ray will conclude with some observations based on his role as a Training Programmme Director and senior academic surgeon. Never has the need for good research been greater.

1. Early development, barriers and facilitators to practice - Mr Samit Majumdar
2. Extending the scope of practice - Prof Joanne Patterson
3. Multi-disciplinary standards of training and practice - Prof Reza Nouraei


Moderator: Taran Tatla 
Session Description:
Transnasal Oesophagoscopy (TNO) as a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure for dysphagia, offers clear patient and service benefits. Performed with local anaesthesia in an out-patient setting, large case series report minimal complication rates, clinical and cost effectiveness, as well as positive patient and clinician experience. Although increasingly adopted oversees since inception in 1994, TNO uptake within the UK remains comparatively slow. The early uptake and multidisciplinary experience of TNO practice is presented, with specific focus on barriers for adoption in ENT. Some early adopters have identified and navigated these barriers successfully; identifiable facilitators for practice are shared. Implementation science can deepen our understanding further on uptake barriers, highlighting a need beyond knowledge and skills acquisition. To accelerate TNO practice, the needs of head and neck cancer patients take centre-stage, as well as consideration for mechanisms in care pathway implementation. Drawing upon other areas of service development and guidance for Speech and Language Therapy extended roles in endoscopy, lessons learnt from a competency-based mentorship and training framework are shared, as well as the key role that Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) may play as collaborative multidisciplinary service and training standards are defined and implemented for integrated swallow services.

Session Description:
Debate 1: In 2019, Professor Marshall and his team at the Institute of Applied Heath Research published a landmark review of the primary care electronic records of over 1.6 million children in the UK. The publication of this study was reported widely in the medical and non-medical press, stimulating a discussion of whether any children should undergo tonsillectomy for recurrent tonsillitis.
Tom Marshall is Professor of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Birmingham. Ray Clarke is Consultant in Paediatric Otolaryngology at the Royal Liverpool Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey, Honorary Professor at the University of Liverpool, Past President of BAPO, and President-elect of ESPO.

Debate 2: The age at which to recommend repair of paediatric tympanic perforations has long been controversial. This debate balances the wish of reducing the burden to the child of a persistent perforation early in life with the possibility of poorer surgical outcomes and lack of the child’s input into clinical decision making. Mrs Jaya Nichani is Consultant Paediatric Otolaryngologist at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and has a specialist interest in paediatric ear health and hearing. Mr Will Hellier is Consultant ENT Surgeon at Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust and Royal Hampshire County Hospital Winchester. He has a specialist interest in otology and paediatric ENT.

Session Description:
An overview of worldwide actual research and clinical applications on robotic ear surgery will be given. It exists different levels of autonomy for robots. In the most cases robot-assisted surgery or with stereotactic frames are acutally applied on ear surgery. Different exemples from USA, France and Switzerland will be included in the presentation. In Europe two robots have a CE mark: Robotol (France) as well Hearo (Switzerland). Applications in the clinic include: grommet placement, stapedotomy and cochlear implantation. Future clinical applications could be lesion of the petrous apex as well the internal auditory canal. Limits of implementation in daily routine work are regulations hurdles, time consumption, acceptance of robot system as well economic issues.

2. Jeffrey Feinfield

Session Description:
Addressing nasal valve collapse can be challenging. Join Ms. Marion San Nicoló (Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, Germany) and Mr. Jeffrey K. Feinfeld (Bella Vista ENT Thousand Oaks, California) for a discussion focusing on nasal valve collapse, patient selection, placement of the LATERA absorbable nasal implant, and the most recent clinical data. LATERA supports the upper and lower lateral cartilage by anchoring above the maxilla to provide cantilever support. With LATERA, surgeons have flexibility to treat appropriate patients in either the operating theatre under general anesthesia or in an ambulatory setting with local anesthesia. LATERA has been clinically proven to relieve patients of the symptoms of nasal valve collapse. 1

Session Description:
TransOral UltraSonic Surgery (TOUSS) is a new, feasible and intuitive endoscopic procedure that has become an alternative to transoral robotic surgery for approaching pharyngeal and laryngeal tumors. It is based on the combination of three elements: FK retractor, with which we can achieve good exposure despite the opening of the mouth; video-laparoscope with a deflecting tip that allows an adequate view of the interior of the oropharynx, without dead spots and an ultrasonic scalpel as a resection tool. The configuration of the operating room and the surgical procedure are described, and the results on surgical margins, surgical time, blood transfusions, tracheostomy, enteral feeding, postoperative pain and hospital stay are analyzed. A specific discussion about the predictors of recurrence in TOUSS and TORS will be addressed.

Session Description:
About a third of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) qualifies as uncontrolled severe, as they have symptomatic disease, a polyp score of 4 or more, and are not controlled with current standard of care, including topial and systemic corticosteroids and/or sinus surgery. Based on findings of key cytokines and CRS endotyping, several biologics targeting type 2 CRSwNP have been introduced, including Dupilumab, Omalizumab, Mepolizumab and Benralizumab, with Phase 3 trials terminated or still in progress. Two biologics have proven efficaceous and well tolerated in those trials, and are registered in Europe for the treatment of CRSwNP not controlled by standard of care approaches. The phase 3 study results and the possible role of biologics in future treatment approaches will be presented.

1. Pablo Stolovitzky




Session Description:
Dynamic nasal valve collapse is a common factor contributing to nasal obstruction; however, it is often underdiagnosed and untreated. Treatment options have traditionally included nonsurgical medical management (eg, nasal sprays, nasal strips) and surgical procedures, such as functional rhinoplasty with batten grafts, bone-anchored sutures, or lateral crural strut grafts, to support the lateral nasal wall. The objective of this session is to review the anatomy of the nasal valve, describe the nasal physiology leading to dynamic nasal valve collapse, demonstrate techniques to diagnose nasal valve obstruction and discuss with systematic review of the literature, in-office, minimally invasive procedures addressing dynamic nasal valve collapse.

Session Description:
Bilateral vestibular hypofunction disables an estimated 1.8m adults worldwide, often condemning them to unrelenting dizziness, postural imbalance and shaky vision that becomes blurred during head movement. Affected individuals often describe fatigue and cognitive distraction arising from the need to devote conscious effort to normally automatic tasks like walking without falling. Also called bilateral vestibulopathy, this disorder has long been understudied and undertreated relative to hearing loss; however, at least 5 centers are now performing first-in-human trials of various vestibular implant systems intended to partially restore vestibular sensation using technology analogous to cochlear implants. This lecture will discuss interim results of the Multichannel Vestibular Implant Early Feasibility Study (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02725463), which is the first and so far only trial in which vestibular implants are used by patients long-term, at home, as a sensory restoration treatment.

Dysfunction of the Eustachian tube is responsible for the majority of chronic otitis media. Despite this, our understanding of its function, the measurement of dysfunction and our ability to improve its function remains limited. In this session we will present a practical approach to how to assess the Eustachian tube effectively and differentiate between the obstructive and the patulous Eustachian tube. We will also present the current state of the art in managing both forms of Eustachian tube dysfunction.

Politzer Society - Innovations in Otology Moderator: Gerry O'Donoghue




Session Description:
Our contributors to-day are all leading otologists from our global world who will share with us their experience of a range of innovative approaches in contemporary otology. We begin with a contribution by Dr. Manoj Manikoth (India) who will describe his extensive experience managing the very formidable challenge of cholsteatoma in childhood, a condition not seen very frequently in many western countries. Randomised control trials are a rarity in any surgical discipline, including otology, and the next presentation by Dr. Stephen O’Leary (Australia) will provide the results of such a trial defining the value of physiological monitoring for hearing preservation in cochlear implantation – a highly commendable effort. We are then joined by Dr. Ramos from Spain who will discuss the topic of changing criteria in cochlear implantation – as the field has advanced, new populations are being considered for the intervention and discussing these new indications has immediate relevance. One of the biggest societal disease burdens in many high-income countries to-day stems from obesity and this next presentation by Dr. Selesnick (USA) will consider the impact of obesity in the domain of otology and neurotology – a condition of great importance but often overlooked. And the last presentation by Dr. Sudhoff (Germany) tackles one of the most vexing problems in the field of otology, that of the patulous Eustachian tube and the role of augmentation in alleviating its troublesome symptoms.

3. Drug delivery to the inner ear: principles, current clinical application and future developments - Stefan Plontke
4. The potential added value of novel hearing therapeutics: an early health economic model for hearing loss - Rishi Mandavia

Moderator: Anne Schilder
Session Description:
A range of innovative treatments for sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), i.e. drug, gene and cell therapies aimed at protecting, restoring and regenerating hearing, are being developed and are rapidly approaching the clinical domain (https://actiononhearingloss.org.uk/hearing-research/translational-research/market-intelligence). This session, moderated by Prof Anne Schilder, will take attendants from discoveries in preclinical models to future clinical implementation. Prof Karen Steel will reflect on possibilities and limitations of slowing down progression or reversing SNHL, based upon lessons learned from her extensive hearing research in the mouse. Dr Jameel Muzaffar will discuss how understanding the site of lesion in SNHL is key to developing stratified hearing medicine. What current hearing diagnostics offer and how to move towards better diagnostics, in terms of improved measures and machine learning to integrate results across measures. Prof Stefan Plontke will discuss the state of knowledge on local therapeutic delivery to the inner ear, how drugs move into and disperse within inner ear fluids. He will apply this knowledge to inner ear delivery systems, including intratympanic injections, pumps, biodegradable biopolymers and delivery combinations with cochlear implants. Dr Rishi Mandavia will discuss the first health economic model for novel hearing therapeutics, showing that they can be cost-effective under NICE’s current threshold. This work informs the development of cost-effective novel hearing treatments and supports decision makers in choosing which therapeutics represent value for money.

Session Description:
We will discuss the current state of pediatric sleep surgery in 2020 regarding diagnostics, new treatment modalities, and surgical outcomes. We will present a series of questions that so far remain unanswered in the management of pediatric sleep apnea. We will discuss the use of partial intracapsular tonsillectomy, pain management, and alternatives for patients failing initial surgical interventions. Our goal at the end of the session is to seed questions in the participants' minds that can generate future research in the field. Sleep surgery is a rapidly expanding field in pediatric otolaryngology, but many questions remain, including the benefits of palatal expansion, pharyngoplasty, and skeletal changes with long term CPAP use. We will discuss our multidisciplinary approach to complex patients with pediatric pulmonary medicine, orthodontics, and pediatric otolaryngology.

2. Decision-making for the invaded recurrent laryngeal nerve - Marika Russell
3. Non-localized primary hyperparathyroidism - David Shonka
4. Greg Randolph
5. Nitin Pagedar

Session Description:
This panel, brought to you by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, covers Topics in Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery. The burden of surgical thyroid and parathyroid disease is growing worldwide, and along with it a profusion of treatment options, techniques, and literature. This panel of experts seeks to provide viewers with in-depth discussions of three topics that thyroid and parathyroid surgeons must understand to be successful. The first half of the symposium comprises three brief lectures. Dr Nathan Boyd will discuss the means by which parathryoid glands can be judged normal or abnormal during an operation. Dr Marika Russell will discuss management of a recurrent laryngeal nerve invaded by thyroid cancer. Dr David Shonka will present an evidence-based algorithm for clinical decisions for patients with non-localized primary hyperparathyroidism. After the three talks, the panel members will bring their expertise to bear on thyroid and parathyroid cases in which published guidelines do not clearly apply to the clinical decisions at hand.

1. Sean Carrie
Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
Ambulatory local anaesthtiec surgery is an increasingly popular choice for patients requiring surgery for nasal and sinus conditions. In parallel with this, Health Trust are looking to implement Value Based Interventions ie maintaining excellent patient outcomes but at a cost saving. Office based rhinology procedures are an excellent example of this. We have recently published our innovative approach demonstrating excellent patient outcomes and experience. 

Following the session the attendees will have learned how to plan and deliver an outpatient ambulatory rhinology service. They will understand the key clinical and managerial individuals to engage with and permissions that must be sought to begin their service. The presentation will explore the choice of most suitable venue, appropriate instrumentation / hardware and staff that are required. Practical aspects including patient selection, pathologies to consider and choice of local anaesthestic techniques will be discussed. I will share tips and tricks on how to run a safe and effective service. Finally, the financial savings to be gained will be explored.

Who is the session aimed at?: The session is aimed at Consultants and Trainee ENT Surgeons, as well as Nurses in the specialty.

Outline of the session: The session will be delivered using an interactive AV presentation, followed by a Q&A session between myself and the delegates. No other requirements of delegates.

1. Soumit Dasgupta
Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
Since its discovery in 1998 by the Minor group, there has been an explosion of research investigating superior semicircular dehiscence. This creates a classical third window effect. Subsequently more otological disorders generating a third window phenomenon have been discovered. These now include other semicircular canal dehiscences, enlarged vestibular aqueducts, dilated internal auditory meati, dehiscent carotid and facial nerve canals and X linked gusher syndrome. This group of disorders is hardly studied in children. Indeed they follow a different natural history and clinical course than they would in adults. Typical third window features are often absent. The outcome of this session is to introduce the audience to the diagnosis, assessment and management of third window disorders in children and to share the skill set necessary to manage this important group of disorders in children.

Who is the session aimed at?: The session is aimed for the wider ENT fraternity including otologists as well as for trainee ENT surgeons.

Outline of the session: The session will include a lecture that includes description of paediatric third windows and the assessment process including case studies of children undergoing the latest vestibular diagnostic test battery (video head impulse test, vestibular evoked myogenic potentials and suppression head impulse tests) from the author's collection in a tertiary/quaternary paediatric balance centre in Alder Hey and the treatment of these conditions.

Resources: IT back up for playing PowerPoint presentation and embedded videos is required. The author will implement some hands-on procedures to illustrate the diagnostic test battery.

1. Nitin Pagedar
Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
The status of the margins in cancer surgery is a fundamental and basic question, but even today a claim of negative margin may mean different things to the surgeon, pathologist and patient. This course will start by exploring the historical evolution of surgical oncology and histopathology. With that background, we will then discuss the current state of the science related to oncologic margins and head and neck cancer surgery. At the conclusion of this course, attendees will understand how surgical and pathological sciences developed together. They will also be able to describe the laboratory handling of head and neck cancer specimens and implications for the information gained from the surgical pathology report. Attendees will become familiar with the current literature related to margin status after surgery for oral cavity, oropharynx, and laryngeal cancer.

Who is the session aimed at?: Surgeons, pathologists, and trainees interested in head and neck cancer.

Outline of the session: This course will consist of lecture and discussion with time for questions and interaction.

Resources: Classroom format would work best.

1. Oladejo Olaleye
Session Descriprion:
  • Enhanced Recovery After Surgery guidelines have been shown to be beneficial in specialties such as cardiothoracic surgery, general surgery and gynaecology with standardised pathways for ensuring excellent outcomes for patients. ERAS has led to reduced length of hospital stay, reduced peri-operative complications, and improvements in both the quality of life and rehabilitation of patients.
  • ERAS in head and neck surgery is a novel approach that incorporates the key strands of pre-operative risk reduction and dietary optimisation, peri-operative antibiotics and adequate analgesia, early mobilisation and chest physiotherapy, thromboprophylaxis, microvascular flap monitoring, multidisciplinary cohesion and rehabilitation. These guidelines have led to reduced cost of hospital admissions as patients get excellent coordinated care and discharged promptly, with less complications such as chest infections and deep vein thrombosis. The link with social rehabilitation is also better achieved.
  • Dr Olaleye will present how to set up an ERAS programme and the Royal Adelaide Hospital ERAS guidelines for microvascular free flap reconstruction, laryngectomy and trans-oral robotic surgery.

1. Mriganka De
2. Georgios Garas
Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
To familiarise participants with the technique of transnasal oesophagoscopy (TNO). At the end of the instructional course delegates should:
  1. Be familiar with setting up and using the TNO equipment
  2. Be able to perform diagnostic TNO independently in an awake patient without sedation (including taking biopsies)
  3. Recognise normal anatomical variants and common pathologies visualised during TNO
  4. Appreciate the additional value of TNO as an office-based therapeutic tool for a variety of common conditions (e.g. benign strictures, achalasia and food bolus impaction)

Who is the session aimed at?: This multi-disciplinary instructional course is appropriate for established consultants, trainees and allied healthcare professionals looking after head and neck and upper gastrointestinal cancer patients (Head & Neck Surgeons, Gastroenterologists, Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeons, Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Speech & Language Therapists, Head & Neck and Upper Gastrointestinal Oncology specialist nurses etc.).

Outline of the session: The instructional course will consist of didactic lectures incorporating live demonstration and videos followed by hands-on live practice by the delegates under the guidance of the faculty members. Endoscopic images of common TNO findings will also be presented. The aim of the course will be for all interested healthcare professionals to be able to perform diagnostic TNO (including taking biopsies), identify common pharyngo-laryngeal and oesophageal pathologies and become aware of its numerous therapeutic applications in the outpatient setting (including balloon dilatation for benign strictures, botox injection for achalasia, insertion of wireless pH monitoring device and secondary puncture) so that they can ultimately take this newly acquired skill back to their own clinical practice. There are no pre-requisites for attending this session.

Resources: Special mannequins and equipment will be provided by Olympus. Space will be required for the equipment (stack system and endoscope) and for participants to sit around for the live demonstration. An emphasis will be placed on technique and practical skills.

1. Roland Giger
Session Description:
Salvage treatment for head and neck cancer (HNC) relapse entails interventions for failed primary tumor management. Initial HNC treatment is either surgery (with or without adjuvant radio(chemo)therapy) or definitive radio(chemo)therapy. Despite the advances in radiotherapy techniques and systemic treatments, surgery continues to offer the highest chance of disease control for HNC relapse, with 5-year overall survival rates of 20-45%, and is generally the preferred strategy even if reirradiation alone would be a treatment option. Outcomes of salvage surgery, however, are highly dependent on several patient, tumor, and treatment factors. Previously identified negative prognosticators include advanced initial and/or relapsed tumor staging, short disease-free interval, medical comorbidity, and non-laryngeal tumor sites. Salvage management of loco-regional HNC relapse after prior definitive or adjuvant radio(chemo)therapy remains an immense challenge for patients and physicians to balance the potential complications of treatment with the possible benefits of disease control and prolonged survival. The goal of this session is to show how to maximize oncologic control and survival with minimal treatment-related morbidity and sequelae to maintain function associated with improved quality of life by accurately selecting patients for salvage surgery and by optimizing pre- and perioperative negatively predictive conditions.

2. Medical complications and screening tools for dysphagia in older adults - Professor Rosemary Martino 
3. Surgical solutions for ageing problems; voice and dysphagia - Dr Clark Rosen


Moderator: Jo Patterson
Session Description:
Older adults are more susceptible to dysphagia and/or dysphonia, which should be distinguished from voice and swallowing changes due to the normal ageing process. Dysphagia and dysphonia have major implications for health and well-being in this vulnerable group. This session will explore what is ‘normal’ swallowing and voice in this population, and consider red flags and consequences for a deterioration in these functions. Talks from leaders in the field, will cover the importance and mechanisms for screening, and accurately identifying those requiring attention. Surgical and nonsurgical treatments have an important role to play in optimising voice and swallowing. Options and outcomes will be considered in the final presentation.

Moderator: Duncan Wilson
Session Description:
The aim of this session is to gain an overview on the management strategies for complex and difficult to treat airway patients. The links between allergic rhinitis and asthma have been well established over the past two decades with the one airway concept. Allergic rhinitis onset often precedes asthma and control in one domain can lead to improvement in symptoms in the other. Multidisciplinary airway clinics allow Respiratory Physicians, Immunologist and ENT Surgeons to work together to establish a cohesive and personalised medical treatment plan. We will look at an integrated multidisciplinary approach to a range of case scenarios presenting to our Joint Airway Clinic.

Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
To review the distinct quality improvement interventions specific to multidisciplinary tracheostomy care that allow providers to focus on improving quality and safety. To learn about available resources and strategies that are important to frontline healthcare staff and to review key drivers, barriers and enablers to making meaningful change in the NHS.

Who is the session aimed at?: Consultant and senior staff otolaryngologists, nursing staff involved in intensive care and head and neck surgery wards, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, and dietetics.

Outline of the session: The 2014 National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome (NCEPOD) tracheostomy care report concluded that there was “room for improvement” and multidisciplinary tracheostomy teams should be developed. Subsequently, the Global Tracheostomy Collaborative (GTC) has brought together best practice, resources and expertise from around the world. The Health Foundation funded evaluation of the impact of the GTC into the NHS, with a 2016 pilot program demonstrating improvements in the quality and safety of care. This pilot was replicated in 20 diverse UK-wide sites from 2016-19. The program championed multidisciplinary care teams including speech and language therapists, physiotherapist, dieticians as well as medical/surgical and nursing staff.  Participants from these sites undertook semi-structured interviews and thematic analysis yielding 18 interventions that influenced the safety, quality and organisational efficiency of tracheostomy care. Over 1,000 staff explored barriers and enablers to change with 2,400 patient episodes over 2 years demonstrating the impact that implementation of these resources achieved.

The Global Tracheostomy Collaborative - set up in 2014 - aims to work together to improve the care, safety and quality of life of every individual with a tracheostomy. Meaningful improvements are achieved by implementing 5 key drivers; multidisciplinary synchronised ward rounds, standardised care protocols, appropriate interdisciplinary education, patient and family involvement, and the use of data to drive improvement. See www.globaltrach.org

Resources: Room to seat a panel for Q&A, anticipated audience of 50+, projector for PowerPoint presentation with screen.

1. Vestibular testing - Update for the practising clinician - Louisa Murdin 
2. Electrical vestibular testing - Richard Irving



Moderator: Chris Aldren
Session Description:
We have 2 excellent talks in this session. Professor Louisa Murdin from UCL will give a practical overview of what vestibular testing can offer the clinician in her talk "Vestibular testing - Update for the practising clinician". She will particularly explain the use of VEMPs (vestibular evoked myogenic potentials) and VHIT (video head impulse testing). Our second talk is from Richard Irving who is a well known otologist and otoneurologist from Brimingham. Richard's talk "Electrical vestibular testing" looks at the work he and his team are doing to develop galvanic stimulation of the vestibular system. He will address the limitations of current vestibular testing and demonstrate what his innovative technique offers for the future. Both speakers are excellent and this session should throw some light on this often poorly understood area of our practice.

1. Vasanthika Thuduvage




Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
Temporalis fascia is the commonest graft material used for myringoplasy by most of the surgeons and failure rates are high on large perforations. Instead of temporalis fascia, I use the chonchal perichondrial graft with a thin cartilage island for myringoplasty. Careful elevation of the chonchal pericondrium gives a significantly sized graft material for the surgery and very thin piece of cartilage can be in cooperated to the graft very easily. Handling of the graft is easier than the temporalis fascia. This graft gives a better outcome for large perforations and easy to harvest, if surgeon knows the technique well. I will be demonstrating the way of harvesting the graft with an island of cartilage. I will demonstrate the way of positioning the graft underlay with the island of cartilage.  

Who is the session aimed at?: This session will be aimed at young surgeons and trainees who has the interest on otology and who want to explore the possibility of using new graft material for ear surgery.

Outline of the session: I will be describing the method of graft harvesting and method of positioning the graft. I will use power point presentation with picture demonstrations to explain the technique of how I do it. Participants can contribute to the discussion by shearing the experience that they have related to their practice.

Resources: Multimedia facility to display power point presentation.

1. ANCA associated vasculitis - The role of the ENT surgeon - Marco Martinez Del Pero




Session Description:
This session will focus on clinical aspects of ANCA associated vasculitis and the role of ENT surgeons in managing these patients. ANCA associated vasculitidis comprises a group of primary systemic vasculitis conditions which affect medium and small sized vessels. Within this group granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's granulomatosis) and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Churg Strauss syndrome) commonly affect the ear, nose and throat. Although the condition is uncommon, ENT surgeons are likely to encounter these patients in their routine practice and this session aims to provide the background to managing these patients. We can be involved at diagnosis, ongoing management and during the repair of damage caused by these conditions. Other granulomatous conditions such as NK/T cell lymphoma and cocaine related vasculitis will also be discussed.

1. Bilateral selective laryngeal reinnervation - Prof Jean-Paul Marie
2. Diagnostic laryngeal electromyography - Prof Jonathan Cole
3. Remobilisation of the cricoarytenoid joint - Prof Reza Nouraei


Moderator: Kate Heathcote
Session Description:
In this symposium, we will first hear from Prof Jean-Paul Marie, from Rouen University Hospital in France. He describes his pioneering technique of Bilateral Selective Laryngeal Reinnervation in the treatment of Bilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis (BVFP). Having performed over 80 cases, Prof Marie presents his results and explains to us what the indications for the technique are and how to optimise its success. The second speaker is Prof Jonathan Cole, Consultant Neurophysiologist and Dorset University Hospital. Having gained experience in diagnostic Laryngeal Electromyography, he has facilitated the development of Laryngeal reinnervation programmes in the UK. He describes how the technique is performed and the role it plays in the differential diagnosis of neuromuscular conditions of the larynx. The third speaker is Prof Reza Nouraei, from the Robert White Centre for Airway, Voice and Swallow at Dorset University Hospitals. He has experience of remobilisation of the cricoarytenoid joint in cases of joint fixation with or without neurological injury. This is an important aspect of our ability to rehabilitate the immobile larynx.

Session Description:
Paediatric otology presents complex challenges and may demand a different approach to the same disease when seen in a child compared to an adult otology patient. Two topics where this is undoubtedly true, are covered in this session. Miss Nneka Eze, Consultant ENT Surgeon at St George’s Hospital, London will describe her experience with retraction pockets, and explore challenges posed in the assessment and treatment of children in the context of their constantly evolving eustachian tube function. Non-compliance to examination and aural toilet can make management difficult. The rationale behind various treatment options and how these clinical decisions are made will be discussed. Dr Waheeda Pagarkar is a Consultant in Audiovestibular Medicine at University College London Hospital specialising in the management of balance difficulties in children. The vestibular system is important for the development of normal motor control and vision, as well as balance. Vestibular disorders are not as easily recognized in children as they are in adults, in part because children often cannot describe their symptoms well and may be unable to understand the concepts of vertigo and imbalance. The pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis and management of paediatric vestibular disorders will be discussed.

1. Richard Shaw




Session Description:
Amongst 1137 patients who underwent head and neck cancer surgery during the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the overall 30-day mortality rate was 1.2% and severe pulmonary complications of COVID-19 were seen in 1.0%. There was evidence of therapeutic migration away from surgery to radiotherapy-based primary modality, and of de-escalation in those receiving surgery, which may not be justified in view of this reassuring patient safety profile. Patients subject to sub-optimal or non-standard treatments should be carefully followed up to optimise their cancer outcomes. The overlap between patients and surgeons testing positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus is notable, and emphasises the need for fastidious cross infection controls and effective personal protective equipment.

1. Sujana S. Chandrasekhar




Session Description:
In the US and Canada, underrepresentation of women in medicine and surgery is no longer an issue in medical schools. Half of matriculating students are women. However, this parity disappears quickly as one ascends the hierarchy, with less than 20% as Department Chairs or Deans of Medical Schools. Meanwhile, Black, Hispanic, and American Indian/Alaskan Native (AIAN) students remain severely underrepresented among medical school matriculants compared with the US population. This paucity of  underrepresented minorities (URM) has not changed significantly since the institution of the Liaison Committee of Medical Education diversity accreditation guidelines in 2009. There are abysmal percentages for assistant, associate, and full professor status for URMs - maximally 10%, 8%, and 5.9% and 7%, 6.5% and 4% in Clinical Departments and Basic Science Departments, respectively. This data is deeply troubling and cannot be “explained away” by “pipeline problems” or other excuses. Why is this important? Diversity enhances patient care. It is critical for patients and prospective students to see themselves meaningfully represented in the healthcare establishment. This enhances culturally competent care and optimizes outcomes for all patients. Without adequate diversity and representation, we are losing out as a society.

1. Raj Lakhani




Session Description:
Rhinosinusitis is a common condition world-wide and it presents frequently to the primary care clinician. In recent times there has been a significant shift in the role of various management options for rhinosinusitis which have traditionally been used such as antibiotics. It is also critical that the management of rhinosinusitis is integrated between self, primary and secondary care to allow smooth transition between healthcare settings. This talk will provide a contemporary review of the management of rhinosinusitis within primary care drawing upon the latest evidence from the literature and international guidelines (EPOS 2020). The diagnosis of and management options related to acute and chronic rhinosinusitis will be covered to provide a framework for safe and effective care in general practice. You will be presented with clear guidance on when to refer to secondary care both in an emergency and routinely. The importance of identifying co-existing medical problems such as asthma and allergy will be covered, along with how to manage very specific conditions which can pose challenges in management within general practice.

4. National strategy for paediatric ENT - Mr Ben Hartley

Moderator: Steven Powell
Session Description:
This session will explore from a number of perspectives the challenges of providing the highest quality and safest ENT care in the most appropriate environment. For the majority of young patients and families care close to home is preferable if there are the appropriate skills and experience to deliver this. In recent years there is an emerging trend for younger patients to be treated in tertiary level care hospital settings. This can mean a further distance for families, more pressure on tertiary beds and a reduction in the experience levels in secondary care. An outlook on the current provision of, and the aspirations for, care in secondary and tertiary care ENT will be given by Mr Jerome Lim and Mr Dan Tweedie. An anaesthetic view from Dr Cath Doherty, consultant paediatric anaesthetist, will explore anaesthetic challenges, opportunities and developments. Mr Ben Hartley will discuss the National Strategy Document for Paediatric ENT which aims to improve the care provision, and considers how this can best be implemented.

1. Pitfalls in endoscopic ear surgery - Guan Khoo




Moderator: Chris Coulson
Session Description:
The endoscope has recently joined the microscope as an essential tool for all otologists to master. The wide field of view afforded by an endoscope gives the user an unparalleled appreciation of anatomy and pathology of the ear. Now the bad news, whilst some microscopic skills are directly transferable, others are new and need to be learnt. As with all complementary tools, the endoscope has downsides as well as upsides and it is prudent for all otologists to be aware of of when to use each tool. In this talk, Guan Khoo and I will discuss how to get started in endoscopic ear surgery, tips to accelerate your learning curve and pitfalls to avoid.

Title: Debate: There is no indication for unilateral CI in SSD       
1. For - Debi Vickers
2. Against - Philip Robinson   


Chair: Dan Jiang
Session Description:
The motion put forward today: There is no indication for cochlear implantation in single sided deafness, is surely one of the most, if it is not the most controversial topic facing the cochlear implant professional community. The intervention is not currently supported by NICE guidance for cochlear implantation in the UK, but the intervention has been used widely in the mainland Europe and elsewhere in research capacity as well as in the individual case based clinical capacity.  To challenge this difficult topic, I am honored to have two outstanding speakers with me today, both of them are opinion leaders and have a long serving history in the cochlear implantation field. Debi Vickers from Department of clinical neuroscience of Cambridge is a Speech and Hearing Scientist who has spent her career from CI industry to clinical research laboratory. Debi has been instrumental in updating the NICE guidelines on CI candidacy in the UK. Today she is to propose the debate motion and argue for it.  Philip Robinson is a consultant otologist at University Hospitals Bristol and Director and founder of west of England cochlear implant program. He is the current president of Royal Society of Medicine otology section.  Philip is to argue against the motion.  Despite this is a virtual debate, a debate would not be a true debate without an audience, I am also honored to have an esteemed audience Panel with me today, they are all cochlear implant professionals.

1. Phonosurgery after head and neck cancer - What can we do to improve voices? - Declan Costello and Frank Stafford




Session Description:
In this session, Declan Costello (laryngologist) and Frank Stafford (head & neck surgeon) will discuss the managment of dysphonia following treatment for head and neck cancer - specifically laryngeal cancer. In a lively discussion/debate, they will talk about their experiences in this area, and will present some clinical cases to illustrate the difficulties in rehabilitating patients after cancer treatment. All forms of cancer treatment - open surgery, radiotherapy, endoscopic laser resections, chemotherapy - can have profound impacts on the upper aerodigestive tract, and examples will be discussed and debated.  Very little evidence exists in this area, so much of the topic relies on professional experience.

1. For - Ajith George
2. Against - Emma King 



Moderator: Somiah Siddiq
Session Description:
A paradigm shift has emerged in the treatment of oropharyngeal cancer driven by technological advances in natural orifice transluminal surgery and HPV associated de-escalation upfront surgical trials. At their essence, minimal invasive transoral surgical approaches strive to reduce morbidity and toxicity with the aim to improve the quality of life in cancer survivorship. Transoral surgical approaches form an integral part of the armamentarium in the treatment of oropharyngeal cancer, encompassing not only the primary setting but new frontiers in a cohort of patients in the salvage setting where previously only radical open (transmandibular/transcervical) approaches were available. Furthermore, transoral robotic surgery has established the role of tongue base mucosectomy in the carcinoma of unknown primary setting. Considerable oncological and functional evidence base exists to date in relation to established laser and robotic transoral approaches. More recently various endoscopic techniques have emerged. The debate session will provide an overview of the set-up, ergonomics, integration of complimentary diagnostic and immersive technology, cost, clinical limitations and evidence base pertinent to robotic and endoscopic tongue base surgery.

1. Hans Rudolf Briner 




Session Description:
Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) leaks occur when a communication between the intracranial space and the nose, the paranasal sinuses, the middle ear or the mastoid is present. When a CSF leak is present, there is a significant risk of an ascending infection (meningitis) or a pneumocephalon. Therefore, CSF leaks must be repaired in order to avoid these life-threatening complications. This presentation focuses on the diagnosis and the technical details of closure of CSF leaks of the anterior skull base (nose, paranasal sinuses). Different techniques and materials for the reconstruction, tailored to the size of the skull base defect, are described. Furthermore, adjunctive measures to increase the success of CSF-leak repair as well as potentional pitfalls are highlighted.

Session Description:
At the end of this presentation, participants will have a better understanding of some of the history behind total laryngectomy as well as general considerations for preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative care and success.

The indications, complications and consent process will be highlighted. The evaluation, counseling and preoperative workup will be underscored. Emphasis will be placed on careful surgical technique and liberal use of either a myocutaneous or free flap reconstruction, particularly in patients who have failed chemoradiation therapy. Attention to excellent surgical technique is mandatory.

The presenter's views on prophylactic antibiotics, thromboembolism prevention, method of feeding and placement of a speaking valve will be reviewed. Other important variables such as monitoring calcium and thyroid stimulating hormone levels post-operatively are considered.

Session Description:
This 45-minutes mini-course format presentation focuses on describing the relatively new fascinating field of SIALENDOSCOPY (minimally invasive endoscopic technique for diagnosing and managing salivary gland ductal pathologies). The history of the technique is presented, refined endoscopic and instrumentation involved discussed and detailed clinical applications shown. Special focus on how this innovative technology has helped in changing the mindset of dealing with salivary gland ductal problems from open surgical extirpation surgeries to minimally invasive gland-sparing procedures targeting different ductal pathologies in both the submandibular and parotid salivary glands with improved functional as well as esthetic patient outcomes. Short videos describing in detail the endoscopic technique as well as its different applications are incorporated.

1. Introduction - Azhar Shaida
2. Patient selection, surgical techniques and adjuvants - Joe Toner
3. Surgical strategies to improve cochlear implant performance - Stephen O'Leary
4. Programming options to improve cochlear implant performance - Rene Gifford 

Moderator: Azhar Shaida
Session Description:
Cochlear implantation is an expensive process, with limitations on the numbers that can benefit from this technology due to cost pervasive in almost all parts of the world. It is also an interventional procedure, with associated risks, and demands significant time and effort from the cochlear implant team and the patient and relatives after surgery. It is therefore incumbent on all of us to make every effort to maximise the benefit that patients may receive from this intervention. This session covers various aspects of cochlear implantation, focussing on factors that can improve CI performance. These can range from preoperative factors such as patient selection, through operative factors such as surgical techniques and adjuvants, to postoperative factors such as rehabilitation and programming. We are fortunate enough to have speakers from three different continents to give us wide and varied viewpoints from all around the globe, and I am sure you will all find these talks interesting.

1. Genetic screening of hearing loss - A practical approach - Ronald Pennings
2. The development of genetic therapy for hearing loss - Tina Stankovic



Moderator: Ronald Pennings 
Session Description:
After the first deafness gene was identified in 1995, many other genes have followed. Over those 25 years, genetic screening has evolved from basic research in selected laboratories to mainstream care of patients with hearing loss. Genetic screening of hearing impaired patients not only has become available in clinics but next generation sequencing techniques have also become affordable and scaled up the number of identified causes. Parallel to this outburst of knowledge on genetic hearing loss, the first preclinical steps to develop genetic therapies for hearing loss have emerged. Genetic and other inner ear therapies will undoubtedly enter the clinical domain in the next decade. As ENT surgeons, we need to prepare ourselves to evaluate, deliver and implement these innovative and disruptive therapies. The first lecture in this session dedicated to genetics and hearing loss will be presented by Ronald Pennings; he will discuss recent advances in genetic screening of hearing loss. The second lecture by Tina Stankovic will follow up on the first lecture and provides an overview of current approaches to develop genetic therapies for hearing loss.

1. Pietro Palma




Moderator: Hesham Saleh
Session Description:
John Orlando Roe from Rochester, New York is credited with the first description of endonasal rhinoplasty in 1887. Following from Rethi’s first description of a high columellar incision in 1921, Goodman and Charles popularized open rhinoplasty in the 1970's with the transcolumellar incision that offered unparalleled exposure. Many surgeons replaced the endonasal approach with the open approach particularly for work on the nasal tip. Over the recent years, there has been a resurgence of the endonasal approach as it is recognised that it has advantages such as the reduced tissue dissection with the resultant rapid post-operative healing and the benefit that the surgeon can immediately judge the intra-operative changes due the continuity of the skin envelope. We are honoured to have Professor Pietro Palma, with his tremendous experience in endonasal rhinoplasty, as our keynote speaker.

4. Less than full time training and consultant roles - Tips and suggestions - Miss Isobel Fitzgerald O'Connor

Moderator: Paula Coyle 
Session Description:
WENTS are honored to present four superb female speakers to help all levels of surgeon navigate success in ENT. Diamonds are purported to be a girl’s best friend. But what do we really want? TIME. It is that rarest jewel, that most precious of commodities. Across incomes, women spend more time than men on household chores. It is hard to move up that academic ladder when the chores are weighing you down. Dr. Chandrasekhar will break down the meaning of time and will try to stimulate strategic thinking so that you are able to harness your time and make it work for you. Dr. Osler is president of the Canadian Medical Association, head of department at Boniface Hospital, volunteer in Vietnam and Africa, and Mum of two. Told ‘Surgery’s too tough. You should look at pediatrics’ she recounts her experience for us. Miss Bewick will inform our senior trainees how to bag that all important consultant job and survive the culture shock of stepping up, based on her experience as a recently appointed consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. Trying to navigate the world of less than full time (LTF), either as a trainee or a consultant? Or maybe you are mentoring a trainee who is? Miss Fitzgerald O'Connor has all your answers. She was a LTF trainee for eight years allowing her to raise her family of three and train. She is now a consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and is the LTF consultant mentor for East of England trainees.

1. Ian Witterick




Session Description:
At the end of this session participants will have a better understanding of the management options for benign and malignant sinonasal neoplasms including the role for open and endoscopic surgical resections. The indications and contraindications of these approaches will be discussed as well as the significant role of adjuvant therapies and a team approach to management. The major factors influencing survival include histopathology, brain involvement and getting clear margins.

Surgeons need to have a good understanding of the biology of various neoplasms and work closely with pathology and imaging to make a correct diagnosis and ascertain disease extent before considering any treatment option. Patient wishes, chances for success and risks associated with treatment all need to be carefully weighed with patient/family input with an overall goal of cure if possible while maintaining function and quality of life. These principles will be illustrated by case examples.

1. Setting the scene - John Rubin
2. Yakubu Karagama



Moderator: John Rubin
Session Description:
Spasmodic Dysphonia is an unusual and poorly understood disorder. The aetiology is still unclear in the vast majority of cases, and genetic analysis has proven of limited benefit. The bulwark of management remains botulinum toxin injection into laryngeal muscles. This management protocol is not ideal as it requires repeat treatments, and efficacy varies greatly from injection to injection. The effect of spasmodic dysphonia on communication and thus on the affected individual’s work prospects is massive. This session offers a comprehensive review of spasmodic dysphonia. It critically assesses current management protocols and identifies controversies in areas of management by speech therapists, surgeons and allied health practitioners. That said, it focuses on up to date surgical management with a look towards future, more lasting approaches. It is expected that the listener will leave the session with an in- depth knowledge of spasmodic dysphonia, including current thoughts on causation and management, pitfalls and tips on surgical and non- surgical management and a look to the future.

1. Leslie Hamilton




Session Description:
When, in 2018, the Court of Appeal agreed with the GMC that the name of a trainee in paediatrics should be erased from the Register, it sparked a wave of anger and fear in the profession. The GMC realised that they risked losing the confidence of doctors. They commissioned an independent review of how the law of Gross Negligence Manslaughter (Culpable Homicide in Scotland) was being applied to doctors. I had the honour of chairing the review and will share with you the background and discuss some of our recommendations. In doing so, I hope I will be able to give you some reassurance and set out some of the steps taken by the GMC to re-build trust with the profession.

1. Lucy Hicklin




Session Description:
I am delighted to give this lecture to the BACO GP day and thank the committee for the invitation. I am a Laryngologist with a special interest in neurolaryngology. I run both a general voice service and a joint Neuro-ENT clinic with my colleague Dr M-H Marion. This talk gives an overview of common problems seen in the laryngology. Many elements of laryngology are unchanging however there has been some interesting work in recent years regarding the treatment of a whole raft of throat symptoms including hoarse voice, Globus sensation and chronic cough. The use of PPI to treat throat symptoms has been widespread and expensive, I will look at the evidence whether this is justified. I will also look at the management of vocal cord papillomas and discuss the role of post exposure vaccination in these patients. Spasmodic dysphonia is a rare condition which is easily missed in both primary and secondary care I present the key features of this problem including some voice examples to aid spotting the patients who are affected. I will also cover some aspects of dysphagia including cricopharyngeal dysfunction. This will include the diagnosis and management of a newly described syndrome R-CPD which is essentially the inability to burp, which unfortunately is less amusing than it sounds.

1. Probability of clinically significant hearing recovery following salvage intratympanic steroids for sudden sensorineural hearing loss in the ‘real world’ - Mr Alex Bennett
2. Local drug delivery to the inner ear: Pharmacokinetic principles, drug delivery systems, current clinical application and recent developments - Prof Stefan Plonte

Moderator: Matthew Clark
Session Description:
In this session we will consider the role of intratympanic pharmacotherapy. Delivering medications via this route intends to deliver high concentrations to the ear without significant systemic effects – aiming for maximal directed benefit with minimal risks. Some intratympanic therapies have become part of our everyday practice whilst others are still very much in the realms of on-going research yet with exciting potential for the future of otology. After an introduction to the topic, we will hear two fascinating talks. Firstly, Alex Bennett discusses a clinical issue that effects all ENT departments, regarding the use of IT steroids in sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Then Stephan Plonte will give us a more science-based talk about how drugs are delivered to the inner ear and about where research developments are taking this field.

1. Peter Hutton

Session Description:
The philosophy of diagnosis is not a common topic encountered in either philosophy or medical textbooks, yet it forms an important matrix within which we can improve the understanding of our clinical practice. The lecture will use a minimum of technical jargon and will require no prior acquaintance with philosophical concepts in logic. It will first look at how we obtain knowledge, what faith we can place in it and how human perception gives different information to that obtained from say, laboratory and other special tests. It will then look at how the three methods of decision-making i.e. deduction, induction and abduction can be applied to clinical practice. Their relevance and limitations to diagnosis and protocol driven care will be explored before reviewing the unique contribution the human diagnostician can make. This will be contrasted with artificial intelligence and the status of the latter in current clinical practice will be established. The presentation will conclude by identifying the unique contribution a clinician can provide when diagnosis is difficult and why sometimes it is better not to make a firm diagnosis but to run with uncertainty.
