Luogo di svolgimento
we take the opportunity to bring to your attention the forthcoming
INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
TRANSNASAL ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY: FROM SINUSES TO SKULL BASE
which will be held from July 4th to 8th 2016 in Brescia, Italy, as attachment
the scientific program.
Aim of the course, directed by Prof. Fontanella, Neurosurgery, Prof. Nicolai,
Otolaryngology, and Prof. Rodella, Anatomy, is to offer an overview of the
applications of transnasal endoscopic surgery, starting from simple
procedures performed under local anesthesia to more extensive operations
adopted for inflammatory disease, benign and malignant sino-nasal tumors,
skull-base diseases, sellar and parasellar lesions, down to the clivus,
nasopharynx and cranio-vertebral junction.
The course will provide a hands-on section (endoscopic endonasal dissection
of injected, fresh frozen specimens), to be held at the University of
Brescia, followed by a live surgery phase, with two running operating rooms,
in which different operations will be shown and discussed step by step, to be
held at Spedali Civili.
Lectures will be provided by the local and international faculty, all
recognized leaders in the fields of endonasal endoscopic surgery, endoscopic
skull base surgery, radiology and endocrinology.
The course is addressed to otholaryngologist and neurosurgeon, according to
the aim of multidisciplinarity the course encourages.
There are 12 places available as “full course” (which include attendance
to the hands-on section) and 6 places for “observers”.
We would be grateful if you could publish the event on the website of your
Society and if you could promote the course among your Members.
