Prof. Rea visits Malta

Professor Rea enjoyed his first overseas trip in 2 years in September, speaking on the effects of COVID on ENT practice at an ENT consultants’ meeting in Malta. He was very happy to be seeing his friends and colleagues face to face once more.

British Society of Neuro-otology Meeting in Leicester

Professor Rea is delighted to be hosting the British Society of Neuro-otology meeting in Leicester on the 11-12th November this year. A superb international faculty will be speaking and the very cutting edge of balance research will be presented. This includes one particularly special presentation on brain processing in those with vestibular migraine as Oliver - his son who you may have met at the clinic during his holidays from University - will be presenting at his first major meeting. Prof says he feels like an expectant father and just as nervous!

Prof. Rea Thanks Meniere’s Disease Registry Participants

Professor Rea says a huge and heart felt thank you to all of his Meniere’s patients who participated in the recent Meniere’s Disease Registry study. It has been an incredible success and he is proud to announce that almost 100 of his patients at the London Road Clinic with Meniere’s Disease have worked hard to complete the questionnaires. Prof and his team have now uploaded all the test data on every patient who enrolled. Data collection is now complete and analysis is ongoing throughout October and beyond. The first results will be presented at the BSNO meeting next month and 8 scientific papers are being prepared for publication based upon this data in collaboration with 3 other major centres in the UK. The London Road Clinic patients represent 25% of the 400 patients recruited nationally so this is a spectacular achievement. Thank you to everyone. Prof knows it was hard work, but the results will be available for all Meniere’s sufferers around the world and Prof will update you on the findings over coming months. It is so important not only that we continue to improve treatments, but are able to share and better understand the personal impact of such diseases on our patients’ lives says Prof.

Prof. Rea Thanks PPPD Study Participants

Professor Rea is extremely grateful to those PPPD (persistent postural-perceptual dizziness) patients at the clinic who enrolled in the study on central processing in PPPD, whilst visiting the clinic. The initial results are much more dramatic than he expected and a paper is being prepared for international publication. Again - watch this space!

Leiceter Balance Course

Professor Rea ran the Leicester Balance Course for the first time in 2 years in September. The meeting was entirely face to face and superbly hosted by the team at De Montfort University. A special thank you to Professor Rakesh Patel, head of audiology at DMU, for his tireless work in ensuring a successful meeting. Prof says no less than 70 delegates and staff attended (an amazing achievement in this time of COVID anxieties) and it was wonderful to meet so many enthusiastic colleagues once more.
