Adelaide Endoscopic Management of Vascular
We are extremely fortunate to have the world leaders in endoscopic skull base surgery as our guests of honour at this course. Amin Kassam and Ricardo Carrau formally from the University of Pittsburgh and now from the John Wayne Cancer Institute have built a reputation as the world leaders in this field and we are privileged to have them share their knowledge. Their expertise is complimented by a very experienced local faculty of ENT and neurosurgeons. The most dramatic complication in endonasal surgery is inadvertent injury to the ICA causing massive bleeding which is often fatal. This course provides the unique opportunity for ENT and Neurosurgeons toimprove their endoscopic skills in surgically managing this challenging complication,and to become familiar with the haemostatic options available. Ideally the neurosurgeon and ENT surgeon would register as a team, allowing the team to develop the skills together in a cooperative fashion. Emphasis on this course is hands-on dissection providing the opportunity to learn how to position and manage the instruments during such a challenging surgical field, and enabling vascular control. This will be a very intensive, but hopefully enriching course.
