Welcome once again to the summer edition of The Otorhinolaryngologist. It has been an eventful summer already with a superbly organised BACO meeting in Liverpool, where it was so nice to see many people and also to see so many of our editorial board helping out in many ways. This is a clear demonstration of our dedication to the educational component that so many of us see as important in our jobs, despite local trusts not always agreeing with this. It was also, as ever, a great chance to catch up with old friends and make some more.
This edition of The Otorhinolaryngologist is packed with some fantastic articles that all of us can learn from and they take us to the cutting edge of what can be achieved by the humble ENT surgeon. I do hope you enjoy the edition and we look forward in the near future to allowing you to access The Otorhinolaryngologist via a web based app. Our ears are as ever open to ideas and suggestions and the editorial office’s email inbox is always welcoming of any submissions to the journal. I look forward to hearing any of your thoughts.
