Attingo dissection course 


VAR-ESS Post-Graduate University Course in Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery

Schermata 2019-10-27 alle 12.48.42


Special Guest: CHRISTOS GEORGALAS - Athens, Greece

 

The advanced three-days lasting workshop is grounded on sessions of live surgery, lectures and anatomical dissection. After the presentation of the daily clinical cases, participants will attend live surgery projection and will debate the surgical procedures directly with the surgeons. Lectures will relate on skull base surgical anatomy (macroscopic, endoscopic and radiologic) and specific surgical techniques. Afternoon sessions of step-by-step tutor-giuded anatomical dissection will complete the course. This course is addressed to physisians dealing with skull base pathology (ENT, neurosurgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons) who desire to deepen their knowledge of the endoscopic skull base techniques. Teaching material in digital format will be given to the partecipants at the beggining of the course in order to study individually the topics of the course and be able to face the final exam. Partecipants that attend the three-day course and pass a final examination, will receive the Post Graduate University Certificate in Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery, of the University of Insubria in Varese.
