Abstracts for the 78th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery online

Aesthetic plastic and functional surgery of the nose, the ear and the face in general belongs to the most exciting and fulfilling surgical tasks in the field of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. While restoring a normal physical function has always been a natural aim for surgeons, the cosmetic aspect, however - especially in rhinoplasty - only step by step gained the importance to ENT professionals that it has had to the people concerned for a long time. Under the motto "aesthetics meets function", plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face is in the centre of attention at the 78th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery taking place at Munich's Gasteig Kulturzentrum from May 16 to 20, 2007.

Steady progress and changes in diagnostics and therapy require continuous discussions about the state of the art - this is true not only with regard to deformities of the nose and ear, but to all many-sided aspects of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology. The necessity of both aesthetics and function is given in various sites of our field, therefore the meeting offers a fascinating insight into a great variety of present and future developments with a broad scope of topics - reaching from oncology to neuro-otology and even complementary medicine, among many others.
