Welcome message

It is our pleasure to announce the second hands-on course dedicated to the endoscopic ear surgery in the central Europe. The last year course was very well accepted by the participants. They highly appreciated the course faculty – M. Tarabichi, D. Lee and A. Mikulec; the quality of freshly frozen temporal bones which very reliably resembled an ear of a real patient.

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

We are honoured to offer you again 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. Following surgeons accepted our invitation: Prof. Michael Cohen from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary is an excellent surgeon with long experience in paediatric endoscopic ear surgery; Prof. João Flávio Nogueira is one of the dominant proponents of endoscopic ear surgery. His talks and lectures are always both educational and entertaining.

After enjoying great experience with the Otoskills Trainer by Grace Medical, we plan to offer the opportunity to practise fine motor skills to all course participants again.

The course will be conducted in the modern facility in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of The Palacky 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.
