5th INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL - TRANSNASAL ENDOSCOPY SURGERY: from sinuses to skull base

Lun 24 giu 2019 - Ven 28 giu 2019

 

Aim of this course, which is now in its fifth edition, is to offer an overview of the applications of transnasal endoscopic surgery. Also thanks to the University of Brescia support, the course will provide a hands-on session, followed by an interactive live surgery section.

The first three days will be dedicated to the endoscopic endonasal dissection of injected, fresh frozen specimens. The following two days will be dedicated to live surgery, with three running operating rooms, in which different operations will be shown and discussed step by step.
