The Triological Society panel on “The Elusive Standard of Care,” addressed these questions here at the 2006 Combined Otolaryngology Spring Meetings (COSM). The panel, moderated by Mark S. Persky, MD, Chair of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, provided an opportunity to review how four established otolaryngologists would approach the same patient.
No one on the panel uses facial nerve monitoring regularly during procedures, but the audience was in favor of it.
