1. 1. GeneralOtolaryngology
Otolaryngology is a medical specialty focused on the ears, nose, and throat. Otolaryngology specialists are trained in both medicine and surgery that’s why Otolaryngology is also called as otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. The research in otolaryngology mostly dedicated towards Head and Neck Cancer, Neurotology-Skull Base Surgery, Audiology / Hearing, Sleep Medicine, Voice and Swallowing, Facial Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery and Childhood Communication.
Improving appearance and restoring functions of the face is the primary objective of the facial plastic and reconstruction surgery. The Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery mainly consist of surgical and Non-Surgical procedures. Plastic Surgery also known as Cosmetic andreconstructive surgery, can be elective or medically advised. This session will cover various scientific advancements, stimulating study and research in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
The Pediatric Otolaryngology is at the frontline of treating infants and children with ear, nose and throat conditions. The commonly performed operations in Pediatric Otolaryngology are Ear Tube Surgery, Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy, Pediatric Sinus Surgery, Pediatric Sleep Apnea Surgery, Pediatric Neck Mass Surgery, and Pediatric Neck Mass Surgery. The key role of Pediatricotolaryngologists is to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. In addition, pediatric otolaryngologists use equipment specially designed for children. This session will cover various scientific advancements, stimulating study and research in the field of pediatric otolaryngology.
Surgery is considered to be the oldest and most refined method to treat abnormalities related to ear, nose and throat. Earsurgery is basically conducted to correct specific causes of hearing loss. Nose surgery includes diverse procedures to treat sinus problems. Wherereas, Pharyngeal or throat surgery can include complicated procedures such as laryngectomy in case of larynx related problems or more simple procedures such as adenoidectomy or tonsillectomy. Head and neck surgery is necessary to remove a tumor or reconstruct an area after deformation from trauma or injury.
The options for treating all neurotology conditions are a recent development in modern medicine. Neurotolgy is closely related to Otolgy. With the advancement of new technologies in the imaging, and operative and radiation management, it is gradually clear the effective treatment of acoustic neuroma that requires close communication between clinicians involved in diagnostics or treatment. The most common neurotology conditions are Bell ’s palsy, Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, Petrous Apex Epidermoid, Petrous Apex Cholesterol Granuloma, Paraganglioma, Clival Chordoma, Chondrosarcoma, and Basilar Skull and Temporal Bone Fractures. The ongoing research related to this topic are seek to define the physiology of the vestibular system, Finding links between specific genes, and the chances for developing chronic dizziness and many others.
In most surgical situations a common bond exists between otolaryngology and anesthesiology. ENT surgery demands exquisite cooperation between the surgery and anaesthetic teams. Besides assisting surgery through providing an immobile operative field, anaesthesiologist must also provide oxygenation, carbon dioxide elimination, adequate anaesthesia, and a quick return of consciousness and airway reflexes after surgery. This track depicts the anaesthetic management of the frequently performed pediatric ENT procedures, which includes adenotonsillectomy, oesophagoscopy, and middle ear surgery. In case of ENT or Head and Neck Surgery the most common anaesthetic procedures are General anaesthesia, Local anaesthesia, Peribulbar block, and Topical anaesthesia.
Audiology and Speech Language Pathology conditions deal with children and adults who have disorders upsetting their ability to communicate and study the physical and psychological aspects of hearing. It also provides the intervention and technology-based rehabilitation to persons with hearing loss and problems with balance. Audiologists are more concerned with the detection, measurement, and study of hearing impairments or disorders, whereas Speech-language pathologists are specialists who diagnose and treat individuals with speech, language, voice, literacy and fluency disorders.
The Head and Neck cancer is specifically categorized in Cancer of the oral cavity, Pharyngeal cancer (cancer in the nasopharynx, oropharynx, hypopharynx), cancer arises in the larynx, Nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses (more than half of this type occur in the maxillary sinuses), Thyroid cancer (mostly occurs in adults and it is one of the most curable types) and Parathyroid tumors (mostly are benign). The two most prominent risk factors for head and neck cancers are use of Alcohol and tobacco. Other risk factors which are responsible for head and neck cancer includes Radiation exposure, Ancestry, Occupational exposure, Preserved or salted foods, Paan (betel quid), and Oral health. This session will include all the on-going research based on Head and Neck oncology.
Laryngology deals with injuries and illnesses of the larynx, often called the voice box. The main conditions that can affect the larynx are Airway conditions, Vocal cord motion abnormalities, Cancerous or precancerous lesions, Benign (non-cancerous) vocal cord lesions, autoimmuneconditions, Neurologic conditions. All these mentioned conditions are caused by vocal abuse, misuse, and overuse and the disorders caused by abuse, misuse, or overuse include Vocal cord haemorrhage, Professional voice disorders, Spasmodicdysphonia, Laryngeal papillomatosis, Vocal cord paralysis or vocal cord hypomobility, Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), Laryngeal cancer, Dysphagia and Laryngitis.
Rhinology involves the study and treatment of nasal and sinus disorders. High resolution CT computer guidance, minimally invasiveendoscopic surgery, Allergy testing and immunotherapy (allergy shots), Functional and cosmetic septorhinoplasty, Septoplasty and correction of septal perforation are the latest treatments and technology used to get rid of nasal and sinus disorders. This track will cover the on-going research involved to treat common rhinology conditions, from nasal allergy, deviated septum, and recurrent sinus infections, to more complicated rhinology disorders such as tumors of the paranasal sinuses or cerebral spinal fluid leaks.
The experts of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dentistry deal with the conditions related to Sleep apnea, Oral cancer, Oral hygiene, Jaw-related conditions, Dry mouth (Sjogren’s syndrome), and Teeth conditions. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a surgical specialty which is used to treat injuries, diseases, and defects in the head, neck, jaws, face, and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. The major surgeries performed under this topic are Dentoalveolar surgery, dental implants and maxillofacial implants, Cosmetic surgery, orthognathic surgery or Corrective jaw surgery.
ENT devices are distinct equipment used for diagnosis, therapy, or surgery of any disorders related to the ear, nose, or throat, thereby helping to correct any problems related to hearing, smelling, snoring, or speaking, There are a wide range of ENT devices available in the market including endoscopes, hearing screening devices, powered surgical instruments, hearing aids, hearing implants, handheld surgical instruments, balloon sinus dilation devices, CO2 lasers, image-guided surgery systems, ear tubes, nasal and otological (ear) packing material, and voice prosthesis devices.
Chronic sinusitis is one of the top 10 medical conditions and contributes around USD 8.6 Billion of direct healthcare cost in the U.S. According to the Centre’s of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S., about 12.1% of the adult population or 28.5 Million people are suffering from chronic sinusitis, making it more prevailing than diabetes and asthma. This high prevalence of chronic sinusitis is driving the demand for ENT treatments such as endoscopic sinus surgeries, functional endoscopic sinussurgery (FESS), and balloon sinus dilation. Thus, growing prevalence of sinusitis is expected to propel the growth of ENT devices market.

About New Orleans
New Orleans, with its luxuriously mottled old structures, its guileful, advanced - now and then practically notorious - air, and its Hispanic-Gallic conventions, has progressively the kind of an old European capital than an American city. Townhouses in the French Quarter, with their patios and carriageways, are thought by a few researchers to be connected on a little scale to certain Parisian "lodgings" - august urban living arrangements of the seventeenth and eighteenth hundreds of years. Guests especially recall the beautiful cast-press galleries that cover a large number of these townhouses like elaborate filigree confines.
European impact is likewise found in the cities well known over the ground graveyards. The act of burying individuals in vast, luxuriously embellished over-the-ground tombs dates from the period when New Orleans was under Spanish run the show. These immensely prominent "urban communities of the dead" have been and keep on being a thing of extraordinary enthusiasm to guests. Check Twain, taking note of that New Orleanians did not have ordinary subterranean entombments, jested that "few of the living whine and none of the other."
