Research

Mr Martinez-Devesa has over 30 publications in peer review journals covering all aspects of Otolaryngology.

In rhinology he is currently researching the medical treatment of nasal polyps, the use of antifibrinolytic agents for the treatment of epistaxis and the need of packing after nasal surgery. He is also studying the anatomical aspects of frontal trephine procedure for the safety of this technique during frontal sinus surgery.

He has also published and lectured in the UK and Europe about the Quality of Life (physical, emotional and social aspects) in patients treated for malignant tumours of the Skull Base and Head and Neck.

In the field of Otology he has researched into the pathophysiology of chronic otitis externa in particular in the changes (and restoration) of external ear canal skin pH that takes place in this condition.

Mr Martinez-Devesa has recently conducted a systematic review update that highlights the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as treatment for tinnitus.

He is co-author of the Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery book in the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Surgery series: a pocket guide for Specialty Trainees during their training in ENT and also a very useful reminder for their career later on.
