agia and seasonal variation.

In a paper at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers revealed a potential variation that would bring further support to the hypothesis of aeroallergens, including pollen, as important causes of eosinophilic esophagitis.

Effects of Tongue Implantation for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Presenters: Evert Hamans, MD; Boris Stuck, MD
Time: 9:38am
Location: Room 210A

Boston, MA Treatment of hypopharyngeal collapse of the upper airway is a surgical challenge in obstructive sleep apnea management in CPAP intolerance. Temporary procedures addressing the hypopharynx are invasive and of low efficacy.

In a paper at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers said they conducted a prospective nonrandomized, multicenter study to evaluate feasibility, safety, and efficacy for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.

The rates of surgical success, feasibility, and safety were satisfactory. Further technical device improvement is necessary and must be based on the new information of tongue forces. When such technical issues are solved, tongue implants could play a role in multilevel surgery in the future.

Video-Assisted Thyroidectomy: Analysis of 700 Cases
Presenters: Evandro Vasconcelos, MD; Renata Mahmoud, MD; Lenine Brandao, MD, PhD; Jose Steck, MD
Time: 9:09am
Location: Room 210A

Boston, MA From October 2002 to December 2009, the authors performed 700 minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomies by Miccoli's technique for benign and malignant thyroid nodules.

In a paper at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers revealed the Miccoli technique is safe and feasible to be done in medium-sized hospitals, with surgical time equal to or even lower than that of conventional thyroidectomy. It also has the advantages of a single incision, being cosmetically more acceptab
