Tympanomastoidectomy/ Synaptopathy/Biomaterials

Outline how the pathogenesis of cholesteatoma influences its clinical presentation; Perform open cavity mastoidectomy and intact canal wall tympanoplasty with mastoid obliteration for cholesteatoma removal; Describe the pathogenesis of and factors associated with age-related and noise-induced hearing loss; Explain the relationship between noise exposure and the pattern of age-related hearing loss; Incorporate bone cement into otologic procedures to reduce postoperative complications and improve function.

ATA Guidelines /Neck Mass /Deafness

Perform a differential diagnosis of patients experiencing vertigo based on history and on duration and severity of vertiginous episodes; Prescribe treatment for conditions associated with vertigo; Determine candidacy for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy in pediatric patients with recurrent infections or sleep-disordered breathing; Identify patients at high risk for complications following tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy; Develop management strategies for patients with conditions associated with voice problems.

Pediatric Airway/Down Syndrome / Surgical Management of BPPV and SCD

Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of quadriceps tendon grafts compared with hamstring and patellar tendon grafts in patients undergoing reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament; Select patients with injury to the anterior cruciate ligament most likely to benefit from quadriceps tendon grafts; Identify patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty most likely to benefit from the use of antibiotic-loaded bone cement to prevent infection; Evaluate geriatric patients with sentinel fractures for osteoporosis; Implement a co-managed model of care for geriatric patients with fragility fractures.

Thyroid Malignancy/Ajcc Staging/Leukophakia

Identify ultrasonographic features of thyroid nodules associated with high risk for malignancy; Select patients for total thyroidectomy or lobectomy based on characteristics of thyroid nodules and extent of disease; Summarize recent changes to T and N staging for oropharyngeal, oral cavity, nasopharyngeal, and skin cancer, and cancers with unknown primary tumors; Explain how human papillomavirus and Epstein-Barr virus-encoded small RNA (EBER) status affects staging and prognosis for head and neck tumors; Optimize functional outcomes of patients with leukoplakia.
