Uncovering the Best of the Best

Best of Orals
10:00 am, Today
New Orleans Theater B

The Annual Meeting Program Committee members have deemed these 19 presentations as the most groundbreaking in terms of both science and impact in their respective subspecialties.

A scientific oral presentation must focus on current evidence-based research, surgical procedures, and approaches in clinical sciences and its application to patient care. Each presentation is three to six minutes in length and allows for up to six authors working together.

The presentations, said Mark K. Wax, MD, the Annual Meeting Program Coordinator, focus on science in any of the subspecialty groups. The scoring committee is divided up by subspecialty to review the submissions. They ask themselves two questions: Does it fill an education gap, and is it pertinent to the Academy?

“Each of the subspecialties chooses one or possibly two of the top-ranked presentations to be presented,” said Dr. Wax.

Presentation topics today range from endoscopic lingual tonsillectomies to the impact of marijuana laws on opioid prescriptions in otolaryngology. Following is the full schedule for the Best of Orals session:
