Pacific Rim Master Class in Endoscopic Endonasal and Keyhole Surgery CME

A Collaboration Between Ohio State University & Pacific Neuroscience Institute

January 24 – 27, 2019

DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Santa Monica
1707 4th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Target Attendees: Neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists/ENT/rhinologists, plastic surgeons, and neuro-ophthalmologists/ ophthalmologists with some prior experience in endoscopic and keyhole surgery who want to expand their repertoire and capabilities.

Faculty: highly experienced and recognized world-experts in minimally invasive endoscopic and keyhole surgery.

Course Description: an extensive immersion in advanced endonasal and transcranial keyhole surgical techniques using didactic and 3-D anatomical lectures, cadaveric dissections, and a live surgery on Day 1.

Course emphasis: patient and approach selection, surgical judgement, anatomical awareness, technical nuances, complication avoidance, maintaining quality of life and optimizing clinical outcomes.

Specific surgical approaches discussed and performed in the lab: endoscopic endonasal route including extended approach variations, supraorbital eyebrow craniotomy, mini-pterional craniotomy, gravity-assisted transfalcine and transtentorial endoscopic approaches and the retromastoid route. A team approach involving neurosurgery, otolaryngology and neuro-ophthalmology will be stressed as well as collaboration with neuro-oncology, endocrinology and radiation oncology.

A portion of Day 3 will have parallel sessions on keyhole surgery for neurosurgeons, and endonasal approaches for ENTs/ophthalmologists.
