About

Allied Academies welcomes and Invites all the participants from over the world to attend the “5th American Otolaryngology - ENT Surgery Conference” going to be held in New Orleans, USA, on November 9th & 10th 2017.

ENT-2017 highlights the theme “Present Vision Future Reality”. ENT-2017 is an event designed in a way to provide an exclusive platform for new researchers, scholars, physicians, ENT surgeons, students and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the concerned field. The two days of educational program will include keynote presentations, session speakers, and poster presenters on the latest in innovative techniques as well as papers in the areas of Ear, Nose & Throat, Head and Neck Surgery, Facial Plastics, Sleep - in adults & paediatrics and otolaryngology disorders

E.N.T is a combined study of Otology and Rhinology or Ear, Nose and Throat. The Otolaryngology diseases can affect some of our most important senses, including hearing, smell and taste. As hearing and speech are important aspects of human development and this conference may offers a comprehensive ENT study and the recent development and research in this area. “Cochlear Implants” & “Endoscopic sinus surgery” are the biggest recent development enabling deaf to gain sense of hearing and the surgery for sino-nasal problems.

The global ENT devices market is expected to reach USD 14,001 Million by 2020 from USD 9,595 Million in 2015, at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Growth in ENT Devices market is mainly driven by the high prevalence of chronic sinusitis, rising geriatric population, favourable reimbursement scenario for ENT procedures in developed countries, rising adoption of minimally invasive ENT procedures, increasing presence of prominent players in the ENT devices market, and technological advancements. In addition the growing adoption of surgical instruments and techniques that are minimally invasive and more accurate than the conventional methods is a key market trend that will drive the ENT devices market during the forecast period. However, changes in the reimbursement policy for Tracheoesophageal Voice Prosthesis (TEP) devices in the U.S., high cost of CO2 lasers, and high cost and lack of reimbursement for hearing aids are factors that are likely to restrict the growth of ENT Devices market.

Why to attend:

 ENT is the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians. The ENT diseases can affect some of our most important senses, including hearing, smell and taste. As hearing and speech are important aspects of human development and this conference may offers a comprehensive ENT study and the recent development and research in this area. “Cochlear Implants” & “Endoscopic sinus surgery” are the biggest recent development enabling deaf to gain sense of hearing and the surgery for sino-nasal problems.

Tracks/Subtracks

Track 1: Anatomical and Physiological Disorders of Ear, Nose and Throat

Anatomical and Physiological Disorders of Ear, Nose and Throat causes certain disorders like Chronic nasal obstruction, Nasal polyposis, epistaxis and myasis, Rhinorrhoea & Rhinolith, Septal hematoma, Deviated nasal septum, Nasal reflexes, Post-Nasal drip & Young’s syndrome, cleft palate, Kartagener’s syndrome etc. Sinonasal disorders like Unified Airway disease, Asthma, tumors can be treated surgically through functional endoscopic sinus surgery, endoscopic frontal sinusotomy, Trans nasal endoscopic surgery, sinus dilation and stenting etc.  Common conditions addressed by laryngologists include vocal fold nodules and cysts, laryngeal cancer, spasmodic dysphonia, Laryngopharyngeal reflux, papilloma’s, and voice misuse/abuse/overuse syndromes. Some of the most common disease is due to excessive talking, throat clearing, coughing, smoking, screaming, singing, or speaking too loudly or too low. The other division of the tracks deal with the surgical approaches in case of adults and paediatrics. Some of the topics will be focused such as: Head and Neck Surgery, Dysphagia, Total laryngectomy, Surgery for swallowing disorders, Trans laser microsurgery for larynx & Tonsillectomy in children.

 Track 2: Rhinitis and Rhinosinusitis- Types and Treatment

Rhinitis is a condition occurs due to inflammation and irritation of Mucous membrane. The inflammation is caused by the degranulation of mast cells in the nose. Irritation of mucous membrane is caused due to allergens like pollen and dander. Rhinitis can be classified as Allergic Rhinitis and non-Allergic Rhinitis basing on the causative agent. Allergic rhinitis is more common in some countries than others; in the United States, about 10%–30% of adults are affected annually. Fungal and Bacterial Rhinosinusitis is caused due to microorganisms affecting the nasal membranes. Infectious Rhinitis or Rhinosinusitis can be treated by vaccinations while allergic rhinitis can be treated by intranasal corticosteroids and antihistamines.

Track 3: Sinusitis –Types and Treatment

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum. In children, common environmental factors that contribute to sinusitis include allergies, illness from other children at day care or school, pacifiers, bottle drinking while lying on one's back, and smoke in the environment. In this tracks we will come across topics such as Acute sinusitis, Antimicrobial resistance profiles of ocular and nasal flora, Sinus headaches- Causes and treatment & Pediatric sinusitis

Track 4: Sinonasal Disorders and Surgical Treatment

The nasal passage and Para nasal sinuses (collectively Sinonasal) plays host to a number of diseases and conditions. This can be collectively termed Sinonasal disease or disorder. Sinusitis affecting children is termed as Pediatric sinusitis. This session discusses Acute and Chronic sinusitis along with clinical features, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. Sinusitis causes Sinus Headaches, the causes and treatment aspects are the major points for discussion. Pediatric Sinusitis can be treated by Sinus surgery. Nasal Irrigation, Antibiotic Therapy and Topical drug delivery are the treatment measures available for Sinusitis. The imaging characteristics of Sinonasal inflammatory conditions are varied. The role of imaging is to identify patterns of disease, provide a roadmap for the endoscopist, identify anatomical variants that impact on drainage, and exclude aggressive pathology. In this track we discuss issue such as congenital Sinonasal disorders, Sinonasal tumors, Sinonasal manifestations of systemic disease, Functional endoscopic sinus surgery and Tran’s nasal endoscopic surgery of the frontal sinus

Track 5: Surgery for Nasal Disorders

With recent advances in technology, including the nasal endoscope, nose or sinus surgery is now commonly performed entirely through the nose, without face or mouth incisions. Today, endoscopic sinus surgery is typically done with minimal nasal packing, mild pain, and short recovery times. Surgical Approaches for Nasal Disorders track discusses topics like surgical navigation and Intraoperative Imaging, Endoscopic applications in orbital Surgery, Somnoplasty, septoplasty, Ossicular chain reconstruction and Management of superior canal dehiscence.

Track 6: Ear Disorders

An ear disease is most often a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Children are more likely than adults to get ear infections. Ear infections are frequent because they often clear up on their own, treatment may begin with managing pain and monitoring the problem. Ear infection in infants and severe cases in general often require antibiotic medications. Long-term problems related to ear infections — persistent fluids in the middle ear, persistent infections or frequent infections — can cause hearing problems and other serious complications. In this tracks we go through some of the issue related to era disorder such as acute external otits, Prechondritis pinna- Cauliflower ear, congenital malformations- Microtia, Atresia and Otomycosis are painful because of inflammation and buildup of fluids in the middle ear.

Track 7: Diseases of Middle and Inner Ear

The human ear is divided into four main sections: the external ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the hearing processing centres of the brain. All four parts work together to conduct sounds from outside the head to the brain and to process it. These tracks will go through the function and disorder of the hearing system of middle and inner ear. A variety of conditions may result in the disorder of middle and inner ear. Ear infections are the most common illness in infants and young children. The other type of disease is called Tinnitus, a roaring in your ears, can be the result of loud noises, medicines or a variety of other causes. Meniere's disease may be the result of fluid problems in your inner ear; its symptoms include tinnitus and dizziness. Some ear disorders can result in hearing disorders and deafness. An ear disease is most often a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Children are more likely than adults to get ear infections. Ear infections frequently are painful because of inflammation and buildup of fluids in the middle ear. Because ear infections often clear up on their own, treatment may begin with managing pain and monitoring the problem. Ear infection in infants and severe cases in general often require antibiotic medications. Long-term problems related to ear infections — persistent fluids in the middle ear, persistent infections or frequent infections — can cause hearing problems and other serious. In this tracks we go through issue related to middle and inner ear. Some of the topics are: Cholesteatoma, Otosclerosis, Vestibular neuronitis, Temporal bone imaging and Acoustic neuroma.

Track 8: Tinnitus

Tinnitus-the perception of sound in the absence of actual external sound represents a symptom of an underlying condition rather than a single disease. Several theories have been proposed to explain the mechanisms underlying tinnitus. Tinnitus, the noise can be intermittent or continuous, and is very loud. Tinnitus is often associated with hearing loss, it does not cause the loss, nor does a hearing loss cause tinnitus. People with tinnitus experience no difficulty hearing, and in a few cases they even become so sensitive to sound that they must take steps to muffle or mask external noises. Prolonged exposure to loud sounds is the most common cause of tinnitus. Up to 90% of people with tinnitus have some level of noise-induced hearing loss. The noise causes permanent damage to the sound-sensitive cells of the cochlea, a spiral-shaped organ in the inner ear. A single exposure to a sudden extremely loud noise can also cause tinnitus. This track deals some of the most important topic which includes: Chronic sensorineural tinnitus, Tinnitus from sound exposure, Pharmacological treatment and Behavioural treatment, Electrical stimulation and vascular compression of the auditory nerve.

Track 9: Neurotology

Neurotology is a branch of otology concerned with those parts of the nervous system related to the ear, especially the inner ear and associated brainstem structures also called Otoneurology. Otology generally refers to the treatment of middle ear disease and resultant conductive hearing loss, whereas Neurotology refers to treatment of inner ear conditions, or hearing and balance disorders.  In this section we will discuss about Vestibular neuronitis, Facial nerve paralysis, Hearing loss and deafness, Labyrinthectomy, Vertigo, Perforated eardrum & Neuro Otolaryngology.

Track 10: Common Cold- Causes and Treatment

Common cold is caused due to viral infection which primarily affects the nose. Signs and symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever. The common cold virus is generally transmitted through airborne droplets, direct contact with infected nasal secretions etc. Remedies for common cold includes nasal sprays & washes, Antihistamines, Decongestants, Antibiotics etc. Prevention for common cold is getting plenty of rest, drinking fluids to maintain hydration, and gargling with warm salt water, are reasonable conservative measures. In this tracks we will go through some of the most important topics such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Pediatric Rhinosinusitis, Viral influenza and Infectious & atrophic rhinitis.

Track 11: Hearing Impairment and Deafness-Causes and Treatment

Hearing loss can be caused by many different causes, some of which can be successfully treated with medicine or surgery, depending on the disease process. There are 3 types of Hearing Loss: Conductive hearing loss, Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), mixed hearing loss. This track will discuss the detail study of causes and treatment of deafness and hearing loss such as sudden deafness and permanent hear loss, Deaf-Blindness, Stapedectomy, Otological transplants and implants and Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD).

Track 12: Surgical Approaches for Ear Disorders

Hearing loss can be caused by many different causes, some of which can be successfully treated with medicine or surgery, depending on the disease process. There are 3 types of Hearing Loss: Conductive hearing loss, Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), mixed hearing loss. This track will discuss the detail study of causes and treatment of deafness and hearing loss such as Sudden deafness and permanent hear loss, Deaf-Blindness, Stapedectomy, Otological transplanted implants and Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder(ANSD).  Surgical part of this track will focus on topics Tympanostomy and tympanoplasty, Assistive communication devices- Cochlear Implants, Tinnitus retraining therapy, Treatment of natural sinus ostium.

Track 13: New Treatment Approaches for Hearing Disorders

Hearing loss is the most common form of sensory impairment in humans and affects more than 40 million people worldwide. Over recent years, more than 100 genetic loci have been linked to hearing loss and many of the affected genes have been identified. This understanding of the genetic pathways that regulate auditory function has revealed new targets for pharmacological treatment of the disease. Moreover, approaches that are based on stem cells and gene therapy, which may have the potential to restore or maintain auditory function, are beginning to emerge.

Track 14: Surgical Approaches for Larynx in Adults and Pediatrics

Laryngology is that branch of medicine which deals with disorders, diseases and injuries of the vocal apparatus, especially the larynx. The track of Laryngology will deal with disorders, diseases and injuries of the vocal apparatus, especially the larynx. Common conditions addressed by laryngologists include vocal fold nodules and cysts, laryngeal cancer, spasmodic dysphonia, Laryngopharyngeal reflux, papillomas, and voice misuse/abuse/overuse syndromes. Some of the most common disease is due to excessive talking, throat clearing, coughing, smoking, screaming, singing, or speaking too loudly or too low. The other division of the tracks deal with the surgical approaches in case of adults and pediatrics. Some of the topics will be focused such as: Head and Neck Surgery, Dysphagia, Total laryngectomy, Surgery for swallowing disorders, Translaser microsurgery for larynx & Tonsillectomy in children.

Track 15: Pediatric Otolaryngology

Pediatrics Otolaryngology deals with children having common illnesses such as tonsillitis, sinusitis and ear infections (otitis media) using the latest guidelines for medical treatment and the most advanced techniques for surgical treatment. Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology is to concentrate and disseminate information concerning prevention, cure and care of otorhinolaryngological disorders in infants and children due to developmental, degenerative, infectious, neoplastic, traumatic, social, psychiatric and economic causes.

ENT Infectious disease deals with some of topic including fungal laryngitis in immuno-competent patient, Tonsils in adults and children, Implications for gonococci detection, Bacteriological and immunological studies related to ear.

Track 17: Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

The Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery track focus on the treatment of patients who have acquired, congenital and post-cancer irregularities to the face and neck. The goal is to restore natural form and function and enable patients to live as close to normal lives as possible. Techniques range from minimally invasive procedures to advanced operations, using tissue rearrangement, micro vascular free tissue transfer, bone replacement and dynamic facial flaps. Our surgeons can restore movement to paralyzed faces, return skin colour and contour to patients with deformities and optimize critical functions such as speech, swallowing and breathing. Some of the topics to be discussed are: Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty, Otoplasty, Complex lacerations and soft tissue damage, Basal Cell Carcinoma and Rhinology Surgery.

Track 18: Anaesthesia and Pain Relief in ENT Surgery

Children account for approximately one-third of all patients undergoing ear, nose, and throat, ENT surgery. Procedures range from simple day-case operations, such as myringotomy, to complex airway reconstruction surgery undertaken in specialist centres. This track describes the anaesthetic management of some of the commonly performed paediatric ENT procedures, including Adenotonsillectomy, Esophagoscopy, and middle ear surgery.

Why USA

In respect to population, the supply of otolaryngologists expanded from 1981 until 2001, was steady somewhere around 2001 and 2006, and after that started to decay somewhere around 2001 and 2006. Moreover, somewhere around 2000 and 2009 the quantity of otolaryngology occupants getting to be distinctly affirmed by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) dropped 19.3 percent. As supply has contracted, dissemination additionally has turned out to be tricky. USA is one of the fastest countries growing in the field of health as well. The American medicinal services framework is developing at an undeniably quick pace. The structure of human services conveyance is moving toward bigger and more coordinated frameworks. The conventional example of autonomous practice for doctors is being supplanted by contracted game plans among vast gatherings of clinicians. The financing of restorative care is experiencing changes because of government enactment and in addition weights from payers to stay focused. The reason behind is the number of medical colleges in the country. If we analyze it, it can be clearly seen that all the top universities and medical colleges is in USA only.

About New Orleans


New Orleans, with its luxuriously mottled old structures, its guileful, advanced - now and then practically notorious - air, and its Hispanic-Gallic conventions, has progressively the kind of an old European capital than an American city. Townhouses in the French Quarter, with their patios and carriageways, are thought by a few researchers to be connected on a little scale to certain Parisian "lodgings" - august urban living arrangements of the seventeenth and eighteenth hundreds of years. Guests especially recall the beautiful cast-press galleries that cover a large number of these townhouses like elaborate filigree confines.

European impact is likewise found in the cities well known over the ground graveyards. The act of burying individuals in vast, luxuriously embellished over-the-ground tombs dates from the period when New Orleans was under Spanish run the show. These immensely prominent "urban communities of the dead" have been and keep on being a thing of extraordinary enthusiasm to guests. Check Twain, taking note of that New Orleanians did not have ordinary subterranean entombments, jested that "few of the living whine and none of the other."
