About this event

  • Date and time Fri 1 Apr 2022 from 10:00am to 12:35pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Laryngology and Rhinology

This in-person meeting will explore controversies and innovations in paediatric otolaryngology. Although Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeons comprise the biggest single group of surgeons operating on children and children’s surgery being a major part of the general ENT surgeon’s workload, one often thinks of paediatric ENT as just Ts&As. This day not only brings us up to date on the state of the art in operative aspects of “Ts&As” but also explores other aspects of ENT in children that the general ENT surgeon should understand even if not actively engage in.

Aims for this event include:

  • Know about the state of the art in paediatric laryngeal reinnervation and extra-corporeal life support. 
  • Be able to support the ENT needs of children with MPS and offer patients requiring adenotonsillectomy the informed choice of surgical approaches. 
  • Value the benefits of cleft lip and palate surgery being within the repertoire of an otolaryngologist.
