It was a great privilege and honour for me and my deputy chairman Professor Chris Raine to host the 10th International Conference on Cholesteatoma and Ear Surgery (Chole2016) in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Council of the British Society of Otology has helped me tremendously in the preparation of this conference. Over 1000 delegates from 54 countries attended Chole2016 on 5-8 June 2016.

The scientific programme included 12 keynote lectures on the basic science of chronic ear diseases; 23 national symposium; 41 round tables; two live temporal bone dissections; 14 video instructional sessions; 18 free paper sessions and poster presentations. I sincerely thank all the faculties who contributed to the scientific programs and also the delegates who provided a lively discussion during the scientific sessions. It was the exchange of knowledge between the speakers and the delegates that makes the conference so worthwhile to me.

The aim of Chole2016 was to:

Bring basic science on chronic ear diseases to the clinicians. Achieve consensus in definitions, classification and staging of cholesteatoma. The first aim was fulfilled by a scientific programme that focused keynotes sessions on basic sciences. These proved delegates with a fascinating insight into the cellular biology, the role of chronic inflammation, genetic advances, middle ear mechanics/physiology, bacteriology, stem cell research and novel imaging technologies in the context of cholesteatoma. At Chole2016, the joint EAONO/JOS consensus document was presented to the international scientific community for the first time. It led to a lively and productive discussion. A consensus document on classification and staging of cholesteatoma has since been produced.
The Proceedings of Chole2016 is available in paper book as well an-PDF (enhanced PDF with links) and EPUB (optimized for tablets). The electronic versions are freely downloadable for all. If you want a copy (paper book) Kugler Publications can also provide POD (Publishing on Demand) copies for a reasonable price.

Finally, I am very much looking forward to seeing all of you at the 11th Conference in Shanghai in 2020!

New edition of the best-selling, practical guide to help dry eye sufferers improve their vision, reduce wrinkles and redness, and restore overall eye health, Includes up-to-date information on medications, procedures, testing, after-care, and more.

It can happen any time. Your eyes feel tired. You rub them. You look at yourself in the mirror and see lines, wrinkles, bags, redness that was never there before. Approximately 100 million people worldwide suffer from dry eye (also known as dysfunctional tear syndrome). Traditional solutions, such as eye drops and eyelid surgery, may actually make the problem worse.

Dry eye affects not only your eye’s appearance and your vision; it is often linked to skin conditions and other eye diseases such as glaucoma. The Dry Eye Remedy, Revised Edition brings the same wealth of knowledge from the first book on practical ways to restore eye health with new updates from the field put together expertly by Dr. Robert Latkany, the founder and director of the Dry Eye Clinic at the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary.

The Dry Eye Remedy, Revised Edition is the first book to give dry eye sufferers simple and
practical ways to restore eye health and appearance without surgery, including:
• New resources for dry eye sufferers, including new tests for dry eyes, after-care procedures, and major changes to future therapy
• The latest in cutting-edge research, including which medications and procedures may help and which to avoid
• Easy environmental and lifestyle changes to help you look and feel better

The Dry Eye Remedy, Revised Edition is the essential tool to ensure there is “not a dry eye in the house.”
