Endoscopic Ear Surgery – Dissection Course

Endoscopic ear surgery has a rapidly gained traction world-wide as a as a surgical technique that has unique benefits. The basic surgical principles and instruments are fundamentally similar between endoscopic and microscopic approaches to the ear, but the endoscope allows visualization of ‘hidden’ structures thus facilitating a minimally invasive operation with greater healthy tissue preservation. This course will aim to familiarize the surgeon with the equipment, set up, and techniques needed to succeed with this surgical technique.

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) can be challenging to manage, even in the hands of experienced otolaryngologists. Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is generally reserved for medical management failures and is tailored to the severity of disease. Recent advances in technique and an improved understanding of the disease process have led to improved success rates for ESS. The aim of this course is to teach basic to advanced techniques in ESS, including maxillary antrostomy, sphenoethmoidectomy, frontal recess dissection and septoplasty.

The session will consist of a half-day of lectures followed by a half-day of hands-on dissections. Seven cadaveric heads as well as endoscopic surgical workstations will be provided, and the enrollment would be open to a total of 28 Otolaryngologists, including practicing surgeons, advanced trainees and fellows.

Open Ear Surgery – Dissection Course

Course Directors / Faculty

Dr. Jane Lea, Vancouver, BC
Dr. Vincent Lin, Toronto, ON

Introduction: Otologic conditions are common in an otolaryngology practice but ear surgery has dramatically decreased in volume in the general otolaryngology practice. This aim of this course is to refresh common open otologic procedures for those in the community as well as enhance what was taught during residency for the more junior surgeons.

A half day didactic course taught by some of the most experienced Canadian otologists will compliment a half-day of hands on dissection on fresh frozen cadaveric heads. The participant will be given a hands-on opportunity to be guided through mastoidectomy approaches, middle ear procedures such as tympanoplasty and ossiculoplasty. Participants will also be given the opportunity to attempt cochlear implant electrode insertions and bone conduction device placements.
