Welcome message

It is our pleasure to announce the very first hands-on course dedicated to the endoscopic ear surgery in Central Europe. Endoscopic ear surgery as a relatively new surgical method has gained wider acceptance among ear surgeons worldwide only recently.

The Central European Endoscopic Ear Surgery Course is meant to offer trainees with the first insight in the value of endoscope during ear procedures, and to offer the expertise to experi­enced ear surgeons that would allow them to incorporate the endoscopes to their routine practice.

We are honoured to offer a team of renowned lecturers who will come and share their knowledge and expertise with the course participants during two days packed with theoretical information combined with practical experience. M. Tarabichi from the American Hospital in Dubai is considered the father of the endoscopic ear surgery. Prof. D. Lee from the Mass Eye and Ear was one of the first endoscopic ear surgeons in the USA. Prof. A. Mikulec from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine is a very experienced surgeon otologist performing high volume of ear surgeries.

The course will be conducted in the modern building of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of Palacký University in Olomouc.

We are looking forward to meeting you in the Czech Republic.

Course

Introduction to the course
The course includes lectures, temporal bone dissection held in a step-by-step mode and panel discussions. Variety of lectures will cover all aspects of endoscopic ear surgery – principles, starting with ‘How to begin‘, equipment and instrumentation, OR set-up, raising tympanomeatal flap, endoscopic ear anatomy, basic and advanced techniques. The main emphasis will be given to hands-on temporal bone dissection.

Course objectives
This course aims to introduce endoscopic ear surgery techniques to ENT specialists and trainees. It will cover endoscopic ear surgery in its entirety. The course should provide necessary knowledge and expertise to allow participants to incorporate endoscopic ear surgery into their clinical practice.

Target audience
The course is intended for otorhinolaryngology residents, otology fellows, and otologists who would like to begin or deepen their knowledge and refine their skills in endoscopic ear surgery. The number of participants is strictly limited to 20. The course itself and lab dissection are suitable for both junior trainees and practising endoscopic ear surgeons. We offer an observer registration as well.
