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.

1. Research and the trainee perspective - Manish George
2. Academic training and research - trials and tribulations of funding, supervision, governance, training and time management conflicts - Caroline Anderson
3. Research is not just for registrars; my MD at 60 - Peter Prinsley
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.

1. This house believes that the benefits of surgery for recurrent tonsillitis are unproven: For - Tom Marshall
2. This house believes that the benefits of surgery for recurrent tonsillitis are unproven: Against - Ray Clarke
3. This house believes that early repair of paediatric tympanic perforations leads to improved outcomes: For - Jaya Nichani
4. This house believes that early repair of paediatric tympanic perforations leads to improved outcomes: Against - Will Hellier

Moderator: Duncan Bowyer 
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.
