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.  Artificial intelligence: Practical applications and the future - Peter Rea
2. Andrew Hugill



Moderator: Anand Kasbekar 
Session Description:
Professors Rea and Hugill from Leicester, UK are about to take you on a journey to the next generation! They have teamed up with IBM to develop an AI diagnostic tool for balance disorders called BalanceAID (Balance AI Diagnostics). This session will provide the concepts behind BalanceAID and examples of how it can, and is already being used in our daily practice. This could lead to further systems being developed which can have far reaching consequences. This session is not to be missed!

Prof Andrew Hugill is Founding Professor of Creative Computing at the University of Leicester. He is a computer scientist, composer and musicologist who consistently works across artistic and scientific disciplines. He has founded several transdisciplinary entities in universities, including the Insitute Of Creative Technologies (De Montfort, 2006) and the Creative Computing Reserach Group (University of Leicester, 2018). Prof Peter Rea was appointed Consultant ENT Surgeon at University Hospitals of Leicester in 2004. His special interests are in the management of vertigo and balance disorders, and middle ear surgery in children and adults. He runs an active middle and inner ear research programme. He has run the successful Leicester Balance Course annually since 2004, and is regularly invited to lecture both in the UK and abroad. He is Chairman of the British Society of Neuro-otology and Secretary of the British Society of Otology.

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.

2. Does pulse oximetry have a role in the assessment of OSA - Steven Powell
3. Surgery for OSA - Neil Bateman


Moderator: Vikki Possamai
Session Description:
This session will be relevant to all ENT Consultants and trainees who treat children with obstructive sleep apnoea. It will provide expert updates from tertiary Paediatric Respiratory and ENT Consultants from three national centres on the management of paediatric obstructive sleep apnoea. The first talk will take participants through the different types of sleep study that can be performed, the information each generates, and study interpretation. The second considers the evidence and role of pulse oximetry, the most readily available sleep test, to aid decision making in different clinical OSA scenarios. The final talk describes the surgical options for managing OSA in children, including detailed discussion regarding techniques for adenotonsillectomy and their relative risks and benefits.

1. James Tysome




Session Description: 
E-lefENT (e-learning for ENT) is ENTUK's online educational platform. It contains is a wealth of valuable, interactive content for users at all levels of experience including instructional courses, videos, clinical cases and images. While the material has been written primarily for ENT surgeons, some of the content is also useful for GPs, in particular those with an extended role in ENT. The aim of this session is to demonstrate the material on the platform including the ability to easily search by sub-specialty, learning type or level of experience and then enrol and keep track of your progress.

1. Nneka Eze




Session Description:
This talk explores some of the most common Paediatric ENT conditions seen in General Practice. The timings and need to refer to secondary care are addressed. Otitis Media with Effusion and Acute Otitis Media are conditions found in children that don’t always require immediate referral to secondary ENT care. Primary care treatment options are explored. The talk further discusses sleep disordered breathing, obstructive sleep apnoea and asymptomatic tonsillar enlargement in children and suggests medical treatment options prior to referral. Other conditions that are discussed include the management of epistaxis including the primary care treatment and how to counsel parents and better manage their expectations.
