Didactic sessions will focus on 3-D anatomy as well as on concepts, strategies, and modern techniques to deal with tumors, vascular injuries, trauma, etc. Dissections will cover the most common microsurgical and endoscopic approach-es in a systematically guided manner and will be performed in a high-level laboratory with anatomical specimens.
