Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the organising committee, we invite you to the ASEAN ORL Endoscopic Ear Dissection Course 2019 which is jointly organised by SOHNSS and the Changi General Hospital Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Ear, Nose, Throat, Head and Neck Surgery. Endoscopic ear surgery is now a reality with HD camera systems. The view that the HD endoscope gives the otologist is now superior to that possible with the microscope. This view has clarity and is able to give a wider perspective than that given by an operating microscope. Angled scopes allow the otologist to look around corners and may reduce the rate of residual disease in cholesteatoma surgery. This minimal approach has enabled reduced surgical morbidity of otologic surgery.
The course comprises of lectures and hands-on fresh cadaveric dissection using endoscopic equipment and otologic surgical instruments. It is conducted in the state of the art advanced surgical training centre using HD endoscopes. The course covers the endoscopic anatomy of the temporal bone, endoscopic surgical management of the middle ear and demonstration of advanced indications such as trans-canal acoustic neuroma removal.
Our faculties are Professor Daniele Marchioni, local and regional experts. Professor Daniele Marchioni is from the University of Verona, Italy. He is a pioneer and leading instructor for endoscopic ear surgery and is highly sought after in many courses around the world. The emphasis of the course is for otolaryngologists who wish to start performing otologic surgery via an endoscopic approach.
