Advanced Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
WORKSHOP

Description

This French language 1-day course covers endoscopic approaches to the paranasal sinus for treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis.

Participants will be exposed on advancement in technologies, paranasal sinus anatomy, pre-operative CT scan reading, surgical techniques with demonstrations, practical hands-on with fresh frozen cadaveric dissections and case discussions.

Lead by Prof Rombaux (UCL St Luc) and Prof Eloy (CHU UCL Namur – Mont Godinne).

AUDIENCE

Experienced ENT specialists interested in further developing their skills in functional sinus surgery to treat simple to complex cases.

OBJECTIVE

During this course, participants will:

  • get to know the general anatomy and in particular the pathophysiology and surgical anatomy of the paranasal sinus;
  • practise the following surgical techniques through cadaver dissection:
    • balloon sinuplasty;
    • endoscopic approaches to maxillary sinus for partial and full resection of uncinate, accessory ostia, inferior turbinate reductions, ethmoid and sphenoid surgery;
    • frontal sinus surgery, DCR, skull base surgery and all that participants would prefer to practise.
  • acquire experience using endoscopic instruments and powered instrumentation and see how image guidance (navigation) can contribute to perform functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
