"Tailored Learning for Tailored Surgery"

Elevate your Practice

An Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Workshop

Recalcitrant chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and aggressive clinical variants of the disease such as nasal polyposis, Samter’s Triad, and eosinophilic mucus CRS are particularly challenging to manage, even in the hands of experienced otolaryngologists. In this era of novel biologic medications, numerous consensus statements have emphasized the importance of adequately complete endoscopic sinus surgery early in the management algorithm of nasal polyposis. Advances in endoscopic sinus surgery technique and ancillary procedures and our understanding of the disease process, have led to improved success rates for surgery in the management of severe disease. 

The course will consist of a half-day of high-yield lectures followed by a half day of hands-on dissections. This course will employ the latest cutting edge high fidelity 3D-printed sinus models provided by Fusetec. Ultra-realistic in anatomic detail and tissue feel, these models offer significant advantages over cadaveric specimens including standardized and graded frontal sinus complexity, and CT imaging for surgical planning. Ten endoscopic surgical workstations will be available with 1 model per station. 

Learning Objectives

After attending the workshop, otolaryngologists will: 


Be familiar with the mgmt. of sino-nasal pathology, including the latest medical therapies, and advanced ESS techniques.


Be able to discuss the indications and contraindications of advanced ESS techniques;


Become familiar with the instrumentation required; 


Be able to discuss the postoperative management after ESS.
