International Summer School: Transnasal Endoscopic Surgery: From Sinuses to Skull Base

International Summer School: Transnasal Endoscopic Surgery: From Sinuses to Skull Base

July 4 — July 8

Brescia, Italy

More Information

Aim of this course, which is now in its second edition, is to offer an overview of the applications of trans-nasal endoscopic surgery, starting from simple procedures performed under local anesthesia to more extensive operations adopted for in ammatory disease, benign and malignant sino-nasal tumors, skull-base diseases, sellar and parasellar lesions, down to the clivus, nasopharynx and cranio-vertebral junction.

Also thanks to the University of Brescia support, the course will provide a hands-on section, followed by a live surgery phase.

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 directed by Prof. Luigi F. Rodella each working station is complete of endoscopic skull base surgery equipment, as well as CT-based navigation. Two participants and one observer will be assigned to each station and will be supervised by at least one faculty member to allow for a personalized tuition. Each step will be preceded by lectures by the faculty members, including world renown Anatomy Professor Manfred Tschabitscher.

The following two days will be dedicated to live surgery, with at least two 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 elds of endonasal endoscopic surgery and endoscopic skull base surgery, but also in other essential specialties, such as radiology and endocrinology.

Aim of the course is indeed to provide a thorough journey in this exciting field, showing the importance of multidisciplinarity, from the anatomy laboratory to the clinical, multispecialty collaboration.
