Target AudienceNeurosurgeons, otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons and other skull base surgeons who are interested in learning endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base, pituitary fossa, orbit and craniocervical junction.
Description This is a comprehensive course that will thoroughly cover current indications, limitations and surgical techniques for endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base, pituitary fossa, orbit and craniocervical junction. Our faculty will present the technical nuances and technological requirements of these surgeries, using a modular anatomical system that can be translated to the dissection laboratory. Current indications, advantages, limitations and outcomes will be discussed.

The course comprises a sequence of complementary didactic lectures, prosections, 3-D anatomical reviews and hands-on cadaver dissection. A live surgical demonstration 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.
