12th Interdisciplinary Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Course
September 20 - September 21
Skull Base Surgery underwent significant changes during the last decades. The increasing advancements in the fields of neurosurgery and otorhinolaryngology have challenged surgeons from both specialties to keep up with the rapid technological progress such as operations based on 4K or 3D endoscopy and robotic-assisted skull base surgery. The skull base represents the interface of an intense interdisciplinary collaboration between otorhinolaryngology and neurosurgery. Therefore, this course focuses on the complex anatomy of the skull base and adjacent anatomical structures, i.e. sinuses and orbit, as well as surgical treatment strategies for lesions in this challenging area. Being the highlight of this course, participants will spend 15 hours of hands-on training on cadavers. An excellent international faculty from Graz, Erfurt, Munich, Brescia, Padua, Varese, and Essen will provide an intensive step-by-step teaching. Additionally, an outstanding technical support including real time navigation for all specimens, HD/3D visualization, 4K endoscopy, robotic systems as well as high speed drills will be available.
