Moderator: Sunil Sharma
Session Decription:
This panel discussion will give the opportunity for the attendee to learn about some of the issues surrounding the management of children with Trisomy 21 from some of the leading experts in the field. Management of the child with persisting obstructive sleep apnoea despite adenotonsillectomy will be discussed, including more recent investigation options such as drug induced sleep endoscopy. Airway pathologies associated with Trisomy 21, such as laryngomalacia and tracheobronchomalacia, will also be explored in this session. The panel members will also give their opinions on the management of otitis media with effusion and mixed hearing loss that is commonly found in children with Trisomy 21, including surgical and non-surgical options. The attendee will leave the session with a better impression of the importance of multi-disciplinary management of children with Trisomy 21.

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.

1. Dysphagia assessment and therapy in the COVID-19 era - Dr Rosemary Martino
2. Voice clinic in the COVID-19 era - Dr Clark Rosen
3. Awake laryngeal surgery - Dr Markus Hess
4. Vocal cord palsy assessment and management - Mr Declan Costello

Moderator: Chadwan Al-Yagchi
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.
