Session 1: Otology/Neurology:
Otology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diseases and disorders of ear (hearing and vestibular sensory systems and related structures and functions) as well as their diagnosis and treatment.
Neurotology or neuro-otology is a branch of clinical medicine which deals with the neurological disorders of the ear, it is more related to the inner ear and associated brain stem structures.
A neurotologist provides a surgical care to the nerves that connect the ear and brain, which includes treatment of hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, inflammatory and infectious diseases of the ear, facial nerve disorders congenital malformations of the ear.

Session 2: Laryngology:
Larynx lies in the neck at the upper end of our wind pipe from the lungs. It is a part of our airway in the throat and lies below the mouth and tongue.th most important function of the larynx is to protect our lungs. It closes the airway and stops the food and fluid going down the lungs.
Laryngology is a branch of medicine that deals with the illness disorders and injuries of the larynx.
Common conditions addressed by the laryngologists include vocal fold nodules and cysts, laryngeal cancer, spasmodic dysphonia, laryngopharyngeal reflux, papillomas and voice misuse/abuse/overuse syndromes.

Session 3: ENT infectious diseases:
The ears, nose and throat are important sensory organs that are used on a daily basis. The ears are not only related to hearing, but also function to provide you with a sense of balance. The nose not only provides you sense of smell but also partially provides the sense of taste. The throat provides the route for both air to reach the lungs and food and fluids to enter our digestive track .
ENT infectious diseases deals with some of the topics of the diseases namely, bacterial and immunological studies of ear, implications of gonococci detection, tonsils in adults and children, fungal laryngitis in immune-competent patients etc.,
Session 4: Pathophysiology of ear, nose and throat:
Anatomical and Physiological disorders of Ear, Nose and Throat causes certain disorders like chronic nasal obstruction, epistaxis and myasis, nasal polyposis. Rhinorrhoea and Rhinolith, septal hematoma, deviated nasal septum, Nasal reflexes, post-Nasal drip cleft palate etc., Sino nasal disorders like Unified Airway disease, Asthma, tumors can be treated surgically through functional endoscopic sinus surgery, endoscopic frontal sinusotomy, transnasal endoscopic surgery, sinus dilation and stenting etc., Sinonasal anatomy, physiology and development and thyroid disorder is most common now a days.
Some ENT problems need surgical intervention. Modern surgery has developed to such an extent that the technical skills required have led surgeons to specialise in particular areas usually an anatomical area of the body or occasionally in a particular technique or a type of patient. These minimally invasive surgical options can heve significant benefits for patients, including a shorter surgery with a faster recovery, less post-operative pain etc.,
This track will provide the details of advanced diagnostic testing and leading edge medical and surgical treatment.
Head, Neck and Oral Oncology encompasses all the aspects of clinical practice, basic and translational research on the diagnosis, assessment, follow-up and prognosis of patient with head and tumours and carotid body tumor. These cancers are frequently aggressive in their biological nature; patients with such cancer cancers have a probability of developing another cancer in the head and neck area. These cancers are curable if detected early, generally through surgey, but radiation therapy also play an important role. This track mainly discusses about Saquamous cell carcinoma, Oral epidemiology, Head and neck cancer viruses, carotid body tumors and HNS Oncology.

Session 6: ENT Devices:
ENT devices are equipment used for identification, therapy, or surgical treatment of any disorders related to the ear, nose or throat, thereby helping to correct any problems related to hearing, speaking, smelling and snoring. There are a wide variety of ENT devices available in the market consisting of endoscopes, hearing screening instruments, powered surgical tools, hearing aids, hearing implants, surgical devices which are hand held, balloon dilation devices which are used in sinus, CO2 lasers, image-guided surgery systems, ear tubes, nasal and ontological packing material, and voice prosthesis devices, All these devices are intended for use only by or under the super vision or direction of a physician who is well skilled and trained in the technology.

Session 7: Medical and Clinical Otolaryngology:
This track will offer a one of kind and far reaching view point on the key improvements in the Otolaryngology field and also treatment of a full scope of conditions. These range from normal issues from sinusitis and hypersensitivity irritation, to hearing misfortune and malignancies of the head and neck. This also includes the current surgical procedures, diagnostic tests, imaging innovation, and prosthetics etc., This track will offer latest clinical advances and setting a best choice for ear, nose and throat care.

· Sinus and Nasal Disorders
Session 8: Obstructive sleep apnea:
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition in which breathing stops involuntarily for brief periods of time during sleep. It is relatively common condition where the walls of throat relax and become narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing. Normally, air flows smoothly from the mouth and nose into the lungs at all times. In Obstructive sleep Apnea, the normal flow of air is repeatedly stopped throughout the night.
· Craniofacila sundrome
· Diagnosis of Obstructive sleep apnea
· Maxillomandibular advancement
Session 9: Anaesthesia and pain relief in ENT surgery:
Children account for approximately one-third of all patients undergoing Ear, Nose and Throat surgery. Head and neck surgery present several challenges to the anaesthetist. Procedures for Otolaryngology surgery ranges from simple day-case operations to complex surgeries undertaken in specialists centres. This track describes the anaesthetic management of some of the commonly performed paediatrics, ENT procedures, including adenotonsillectomy, oesophagoscopy and thoracic surgery.

Session 11: ENT Rehabilitation:
Rehabilitation is the action of restoring someone to healthy or normal life through training and therapy after addiction or illness. After any serious injury or illness we may recover slowly. Rehabilitation helps to regain our strength, relearn skills or find new ways.
Rehabilitation mainly focuses on
· Physical therapy to help your strength, mobility and fitness
· Occupational therapy to help you with your daily activities
· Speech-language therapy to help with speaking, understanding, reading, writing and swallowing

Session 12: Bio-materials in Implant Otorhinolaryngology:
Biomaterials are medical devices, designed for tissue substation or reconstruction. The role of biomaterials has become more important in the last 30 years in otorhinolaryngology. There are many newly developed implants which are based on both, innovative biomaterials and novel implant technologies. Since the biomaterials are integrated into biological systems they have to fulfil all the technical requirements and accommodate biological interactions.
