The laryngotracheal junction is a delicate and unique segment offering some specific characteristics. Being the only part of the airway with a closed cartilaginous circumference this area is site of predilection for different lesions like scarring, chronic and acute inflammation as well as Wegener’s disease in the larynx or the still poorly understood idiopathic progressive subglottic stenosis. As a consequence this location with its obviously different pathophysiology is highly demanding and challenging. Therefore, successful treatment requires sophisticated and multi-disciplinary concepts in diagnostics as well as therapy.

Feel cordially invited to collect hands-on experience and to discuss the complex topic of modern airway surgery with internationally leading experts in the field. The combination of wet-lab exercises on fresh-frozen specimen, cutting edge lectures and live surgery will deepen your understanding and improve your decision making in these comparatively rare, but delicate and complex patients.

The Wolf Training Academy offers excellent facilities for our wet-lab dissections. Don ?t miss the opportunity to visit the production process of a famous instrument and endoscope factory on site.

Stuttgart is a vibrant, modern city embedded in a historical rich and beautiful landscape. Being home to many major companies like Daimler Benz, Porsche or Bosch it is the economical powerhouse of the country. Accessibility by airplane, train and car is excellent; accommodation needs to be planned well ahead.

I am looking forward to a few days of intensive work and collegial enthusiasm.
