An Exploration of Factors Predicting Malnutrition in Head and Neck Cancer
Category: Head and Neck Surgery
Eva B. Hammerlid, MD (presenter); Ewa Silander, MD

Head and neck cancer patients often face malnutrition, which can affect quality of life and survival.

Treatment of Laryngeal Cancer: Rationale and Outcomes
Category: Head and Neck Surgery
Daniel Clayburgh, MD, PhD (presenter); Joshua S. Schindler, MD

This poster discusses the rationale for treatment modality choice in laryngeal cancer patients, comparing results of the different modalities. It is found that "tumor characteristics, patient health, and patient preferences" affect treatment choice, and more research is needed to determine the value of each treatment modality. More, http://oto.sagepub.com/content/147/2_suppl/P187.2.full.pdf+html

Low-Fidelity Simulation of Airway Emergencies
Category: Laryngology/Broncho-Esophagology
Yujay Ramakrishnan, MRCS Ed (presenter); Emma McNeill; Neil Killick; Suzanne O' Neill

Junior otolaryngology residents may have little experience managing airway emergencies by the time they are expected to do so. This poster discusses the value of low-fidelity, simulation-based training in increasing confidence, knowledge, and technical skill of junior trainees.

Eamon J. McLaughlin (presenter); Douglas C. Bigelow, MD; John Y.K. Lee, MD; Michael J. Ruckenstein, MD

Acoustic neuromas may be managed conservatively or with stereotactic radiosurgery. This poster discusses the use of a validated survey to determine relative quality of life of patients treated with each tactic. Survey results indicate quality of life is similar in both groups.

Category: Otology/Neurotology
