Last year we announced that we had been working with Consultant ENT surgeon Mr Dave Owens and one of his ENT junior house officers (Yousef Ibrahim)  to undertake in vitro assessments of the hydrostatic head required to penetrate grommets. 

The paper has now been published in Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol (2017) 274:3613–3617.  The full citation is:

Ibrahim Y, Fram P, Hughes G, Phillips P, Owens D. Water penetration of
grommets: an in vitro study. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2017
Oct;274(10):3613-3617.

SMTL were invited to the 8th RCSEd All Wales Medical & Dental Student Surgical Research symposium at Margam Orangery in October 2017 to judge poster and oral presentations and to present the SMTL award for best science paper.  The winner was Gargi Pandey for her poster on "A systematic review and meta-analysis on  the effectiveness of Radiofrequency Ablation in patients with low-grade dysplastic Barrett's oesophagus.".  Gargi also won the best overall poster award. The photo shows Pete Phillips, Director of SMTL, handing Gargi her award trophy.
