1. Tulio Valdez
2. Maria Suurna



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.

1. Intraoperative assessment of abnormal parathyroid glands - Nathan Boyd
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.

Resources: No specific resources other than AV are required.

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.
