The course will provide a hands-on session, followed by an interactive live surgery section.
The first three days will be dedicated to the endoscopic endonasal dissection of injected, fresh frozen specimens. At the Gross Anatomy Laboratory of the University of Brescia each working station is complete of endoscopic skull base surgery equipment, as well as CT-based navigation. Each participant, two per each station, will be supervised by one tutor to allow for a personalized tuition while observers will rotate on each station. Each step will be preceded by videos explained by the faculty members, as well as demonstrations with 4K technology.
The following two days will be dedicated to live surgery, with three running operating rooms, in which different operations will be shown and discussed step by step. As well as watching the operations from the connected meeting room, participants and observers will have the chance of observing surgery directly in the OR. Lectures will be provided by the local and international faculty, all recognized leaders not only in the fields of endonasal endoscopic surgery and endoscopic skull base surgery, but also in other essential specialties, such as radiology and pathology.
The course is addressed to otholaryngologists and neurosurgeons, according to the aim of multidisciplinarity the course encourages. There are 18 places available as “full course” (which includes attendance to the hands-on section) and 9 places as “observers”. We would be grateful if you could publish our event on your website and if you can spread the course among your members.
