The course provides training in:

  • Advanced transcanal temporal bone dissection
  • Endoscopic soft tissue dissection
  • Advanced endoscopic techniques The course is based on hands-on dissection of 2 fresh-frozen/partially preserved cadaveric specimens using an entirely endoscopic approach. A limited number of key lectures are provided to guide dissection and introduce the concepts of endoscopic ear surgery. The course is not a temporal bone dissection course in that dissections will concentrate on a front-to-back ‘disease-pursuant’ approach through the external auditory meatus using endoscopic techniques. Live demonstrations will be undertaken by the faculty to guide the group dissections. The major dissections include:
  • Raising a tympanomeatal flap and accessing the middle ear
  • Lateral graft tympanoplasty
  • Atticotomy
  • Approaches to the sinus tympani and anterior epitympanum
  • Endoscopic ossiculoplasty
