Birmingham Minimally Invasive Head & Neck Surgery Symposium 2022

A truly outstanding symposium, the first in the UK to cover all aspects of minimally invasive surgery of the head and neck delivered by a supreme and diverse faculty of experts.” (Ali Sameer Mallick, Nottingham, UK)

Anatomy for Plastic Surgery of the Face, Head, and Neck

This textbook couldn’t have arrived with better timing. As an ENT trainee soon to sit the FRCS(ORL-HNS) with an interest in facial plastics, I can comfortably say this is incredibly useful to have in the library. The book should suit...

Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery

Having recently acquired a post-CCT Rhinology and Skull Base fellowship, I am eternally grateful to the good folk at ENT & Audiology News for this most recent book review opportunity! The book should suit most higher-level ENT trainees through to...

Robotic surgery for ventral skull base malignancy

The use of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in the head and neck area has been shown to be a safe and effective technique, achieving good oncological clearance of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, supraglottis and glottic area. However, robotic surgery for the...

Fingernail for orbital floor reconstruction

Orbital damage is common in maxillofacial injuries and about half of them result in damage to the orbital floor. Suitable material that could be used for repairing the orbital floor includes autografts, allografts and alloplastic materials. The disadvantage of using...

Simulation and otologic surgery

Ensuring adequate exposure and developing surgical skills for trainees has been an ongoing challenge. In this article, the authors reviewed the role of simulation and its role in developing skills in otologic surgery for trainees. Virtual-reality (VR) simulation models have...

Method of delivery: all topical nasal corticosteroids are not made equal

There is an increasing body of evidence that the role of surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis is to facilitate the delivery of topical medical treatment – most notably, topical corticosteroids. Two recent studies, one using flow dynamics and another one examining...

The British Academic Conference in Otolaryngology (BACO) will take place at the Manchester Central Conference Centre next July. To give you an idea of what to expect at this major UK conference we interviewed Professor Tim Woolford, Consultant Ear, Nose...

Which da Vinci surgical system? Novel flexible, single-port versus current multiport, rigid-arm robotic surgical system

The da Vinci robotic surgical system has transformed how oropharyngeal head and neck surgery can be delivered. The existing da Vinci Si model has challenges: the dimensions of this are larger than would be ideal for head and neck surgery...
