Top Oral Abstracts for Each Subspecialty To Be Presented

Scientific Oral Presentations: Best of Orals

  • 10:00 am – Noon
  • Sunday
  • Room E450A

A top abstract for each of the 11 otolaryngology subspecialties submitted for the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience will be featured in a special session Sunday. Each presentation, with time for questions and answers, will last six minutes.

“This will give a good overview for someone to go to this one session and find the cutting-edge materials in the whole field,” said Mark Wax, MD, session moderator and Annual Meeting program coordinator. “Most otolaryngologists like to keep abreast of what is going on in the entire field, and this presentation lets them see something like that. In a subspecialty outside of yours, you can see the best of what is going on.”

The Annual Meeting solicited abstracts from across the specialty. It received hundreds of submissions. Those submissions were reviewed by six individuals and given grades, then passed on to subspecialties for further review. Eventually, each subspecialty had a committee choose the best presentations based on relevance and general interest to the otolaryngology community.

“Someone may identify themselves as a subspecialist, but they get patients who want to know about another problem,” Dr. Wax said. “All of us, by the nature of what we do and who we are, like to keep up to date on what is going on in medicine in general. It is part of the lifelong learning we all have been brought up to believe in. It is part of our core existence. At the end of the day, we are all otolaryngologists.”

Presentations are condensed into a few minutes to convey the abstract’s most important information and to allow time for discussion, he said.

The abstracts that will be presented are:
