1. Kumud Handa
Session Description

Learning Outcomes:
Learn to do Laryngeal framework surgery, improve voice results and refining surgical technique in candidates already doing laryngeal framework surgery.

Outline of the session: This instructional course will address all thyroplasty surgeries including (medialisation) Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4  thyroplasty. The thrust will be on most often  done procedure Type 1 Thyroplasty along with arytenoid adduction. Issues discussed will include patient selection, incision, type of anesthesia, making of thyroplasty window, intraoperative voice monitoring and handling postoperative complications if any. Other issues discussed will include indications for combining arytenoid adduction and combination of thyroplasties in certain situations. Type 2 thyroplasty (which author does for certain situations in spasmodic dysphonia) along with Type 3 and Type 4 thyroplasties often done for pitch change will also be discussed.

3. Manish George (AOT President)


Moderator: Craig Murray (SAC Chair)
Session Description:        
The session will discuss the history behind the new curriculum and the reason for its inception and why a new assessment tool was required. Craig Murray (SAC Chair) co-authored the curriculum document and had first hand experience of its development and will set the scene. Further presentations will follow looking into the use of the MCR (multi consultant report). Presentations will be given by Ram Moorthy (Chair of NAPDENT) and a MCR "Champion".

1. Sauid Ishaq
Session Description:
Being National referral centres we have carried out over 250 flexible endoscopic treatment of Zenker diverticulum. I would be delighted to share our experience as how I do assess these patients and how I do the procedure. I aim to discuss challenges of treatment patient with recurrent Zener after stapling and how I treat such patients. I hope to discuss flexible endoscopic septal division (FESD). I also like to discuss how our technique has evolved and what emerging treatment are on the horizon. I am looking forward to this session and very much hope to have active online participation to make this session interactive.

1. Frailty, sarcopenia, undernutrition and dysphagia in older people - Dr David Smithard 
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.

1. Miss Lisha McClelland
2. Dr Duncan Wilson
3. Professor Alex Richter


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.

1. Asit Arora
2. Brendan McGrath



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.

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.
