Event description

Description

This extensive five-day course is designed as a complete temporal bone dissection course for the resident or fellow in training or as an update for the practicing otolaryngologist. The course seeks to improve the surgical skill of participants through a series of dissection exercises and review of topics in otology, neurotology and skull base surgery. Upon completion of the course, participants will understand clinical decision making and will have improved basic temporal bone dissection skills so as to avoid technical errors in performing ear surgery, thus leading to fewer patient complications. Dissection exercises include:

  • Canal Wall Down Mastoidectomy

  • Facial Nerve Decompression

  • Facial Recess Dissection

  • Intact Canal Wall Mastoidectomy

  • Meatoplasty

  • Middle Cranial Fossa and Lateral Approaches to the Temporal Bone

  • Ossicular Reconstruction

  • Stapedectomy

  • Translabyrinthine Approach to Internal Auditory Canal

  • Transmastoid Labyrinthectomy

  • Tympanoplasty

Emphasis will be placed on providing the physician with a conceptual understanding of the three-dimensional temporal bone anatomy. The course emphasizes intensive hands-on dissection under faculty supervision for six hours daily, rather than observation of videotapes or live surgery.
