Quick access
The course is based on the competencies defined in AONeuro’s new curriculum for skull base and features an international faculty of experts. It is delivered through a combination of lectures, case discussions, and hands-on dissection. 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 approaches in a systematically guided manner and will be performed in a high-level laboratory with anatomical specimens. Special focus will be given to numerous case discussion sessions where participants are encouraged to bring their own cases to add to those presented by the faculty.
