ENT surgery necessitates exquisite cooperation between the surgery and anaesthetic teams. Besides assisting surgery through providing an immobile operative field, anaesthesiologist must also provide oxygenation, adequate anaesthesia, carbon dioxide elimination, and a quick return of consciousness and airway reflexes after surgery. This track depicts the anaesthetic management of the commonly performed paediatric ENT procedures, which includes oesophagoscopy, adenotonsillectomy, and middle ear surgery.

Implants are medical devices used to replace non-functional biological structure, support a biological structure or to enhace the efficiency of the structure.
Sensory and neurological implants are used to overcome disorders affecting brain and other major senses. This category of implants includes tymnopanostomy tube, intraocular lens, cochlear implant, intrastromal corneal ring segment and neurotransmitter. Dental implant interface with the bone of the skull to assist dental prosthesis.

Surgery is considered to be the oldest and most refined method to treat abnormalities related to ear, nose and throat. Ear surgery is conducted to correct specific causes of hearing loss. Nose surgery basically includes different types of procedures to treat sinus problems (sinus surgery). Wherereas, Pharyngeal (throat) surgery can include complicated procedures such as (laryngectomy) in case of larynx cancer or more simple procedures such as (adenoidectomy) or (tonsillectomy). Head and neck surgery is necessary to remove a tumor or reconstruct an area after deformation from trauma or injury.
Endoscopic sinus surgery has allowed a visibility inside the nose and sinuses, and a much better understanding of their diseases.
There are many other non-surgical treatments available to treat problems related to ear, nose and throat at acute level. Antimicrobial agents are mostly prescribed for both acute and chronic sinusitis. Antifungal medications are also very effective against fighting with ENT infectious diseases.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a part of dentistry that comprises the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects that involves the functional aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, neck, teeth, mouth, gums, and jaws. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are expertise in treating multiple defects, injuries, related to the mouth, jaws, teeth, and face.
This speciality also includes treatment of accident victims suffering fractures and facial injuries and it also offers dental implant surgery, and care for patients with benign and malignant tumors and cysts of the jaws.

The most frequently occuring ear diseases are Otitis Media, External Ear Infections, Tinnitus, Ear Wax (Cerumen), Cholesteatoma and Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease (AIED). In comparison to adults children are more likely to get affected with an ear infection. There are various diagnostic procedures that can be used in case of ear infection such as Hearing tests, Gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), etc. Ear disorders can be treated either by non-surgical or surgical methods.
