TopicsAgenda

One month before the course, we will provide all registered participants with the following lectures in a video format. Participants will be responsible to watch these videos and be familiar with the material. The course will start at a level that assumes familiarity with the concepts exposed in the videos.

Pre-course Principles of Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Approaches
Pre-course The Sinonasal Corridor
Pre-course Anatomy of the Sinonasal Tract & Skull Base (Extradural)
Pre-course Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves and Cerebral Circulation (Extradural)
Pre-course Reconstruction of the Skull Base: From Free Grafting to Vascularized Flaps
Pre-course Sagittal Plane EEA Modules I: Trans-sellar, Trans-planum, and Trans-cribiform
Pre-course Practical Approach to Imaging of the Cranial Base
Pre-course Endovascular Approach: How I Can Get You Out of Trouble (even deep, deep, deep... trouble)
Pre-course Sagittal Plane Modules II: Trans-clival, Trans-odontoid
Pre-course Trans-orbital Endonasal Approaches
Pre-course Endoscopic Anterior Skull Base Resection for Sinonasal Malignancy: Principles and Outcomes
Pre-course Anatomical Basis for the Transpterygoid Approaches
Pre-course Coronal Plane Modules

In addition, we will provide copies of the prosection videos, a dissection manual in PDF format, and references. Although not critical, we encourage the participants to go over this material before the course.
Description Responding to the increased familiarity with endonasal endoscopic skull base surgery, we have modified the program to start at a higher level of expertise, and to promote discussions related to treatment algorithms of specific diseases. However, we recognize the value of refreshing basic concepts; and that our course caters to participants with a variety of levels of training and experience. Therefore, we will provide the participants with a series of video-lectures and video-prosections to fulfill these needs. This video-lecture series will allow the participants to enjoy the benefits of both a traditional lecture-style course based on anatomic and technical concepts, and a course with a new interactive format emphasizing decision-making and disease-oriented discussions. Participants will in fact enroll in two courses, a home study course and the hands-on course without additional costs.

The course comprises:
1. Pre-course video-lectures addressing the basic principles of endoscopic skull base surgery, anatomy of the sinonasal tract and skull base, and basic surgical technique and instrumentation. These will be provided to registered participants one month prior to the course, as the program will start at a level that presumes familiarity with these principles.
2. Anatomical prosections (videos will be provided one month prior to the course).
3. Laminated dissection manual (a digital version will be provided one month prior to the course)
4. Sequence of complementary didactic lectures, round tables and panel discussions (open format with audience participation), 3-D anatomical reviews and hands-on cadaveric dissection.
5. Live surgery will be transmitted directly to the auditorium where the participants may interact with the surgeons and other members of the faculty.
Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
1. Describe the anatomic relationships of the sinonasal tract, orbit and ventral skull base from the endoscopic perspective
2. Discuss the indications and limitations of endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base, pituitary fossa, orbit and craniocervical junction
3. Identify how to avoid and treat complications of endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base, pituitary fossa, orbit and craniocervical junction
4. Describe the anatomic relationships and surgical exposure afforded by the transpterygoid approach.
5. Describe the relative anatomical exposures of the endonasal versus the open traditional approaches
6. Identify how to avoid and treat complications of endoscopic skull base surgery.
