Varese, Hands-On Basic Course, English 24-26 February 2014



 Attingo dissection course

The modern sinonasal surgery


attingonew

In the past years, endoscopic endonasal techniques  underwent significant advances. Indeed, it is now possible to say that the nose and paranasal sinuses changed from just a potential site of various diseases to a natural surgical corridor toward hidden and deeper anatomical structures. Furthermore, the ability to resect and reconstruct skull base defects has dramatically improved, thus making endoscopic techniques a valuable tool for skull base surgeons. Given the ever expanding surgical options, a continuous improvement of anatomical knowledge is mandatory. However, thinking that the apex has already been reached would be erroneous. 

For this reason, we designed a specific course where you will find the opportunity to attend classes on sinonasal pathology, specifically targeted on new diagnostics, technologies and surgical devices. The course includes a practical surgical training which will be held through live-surgery sessions and cadaveric dissection.

During the scientific sessions it will be possible to dicuss with attendees about their own challenging clinical cases, for this reason they are invited to provide us radiological examinations, endoscopic images and the whole medical history of their patients. The organization is residential with a daily basis (morning and afternoon) and with the constant presence of a tutor. Interaction with the faculty is facilitated by the small number of participants (max 12 members).

The basic three-days lasting workshop is grounded on sessions inside the surgical theatre, theoretical lessons and practical caveric dissection. After the presentation of the daily clinical cases, participants will access the surgical theaters and debate the surgical procedures directly with the tutors. 

Lectures will relate to sinonasal surgical anatomy (macroscopic, endoscopic, 3D and radiologic), medical and surgical indications, making use of the precious support given by specialists from other disciplines.

Afternoon sessions of step-by-step tutor-giuded anatomical dissection complete the course. 

Furthermore, as the experience is basal, it is addressed to ENT specialists or residents who desire to deepen their knowledge on treatment of sinonasal inflammatory pathology and some other specific aspects such as particular techniques and the management of possible complications.
