Endoscopic sinus surgery techniques have developed rapidly over the last twenty years and
remain the gold-standard approach for sinus procedures. Although most surgeons receive
adequate training in basic sinus surgery techniques, there has been considerable advancements
in these techniques, indications and extent of surgery feasible with endoscopic techniques.
Continuous education with didactic and practical courses represents the most valuable tool to
remain abreast of such developments and maintain surgical skills. The main goal of this training
opportunity provided by leading experts in this field is to provide the participants with a safe and
supported environment to gain instructions and hands on training in all aspects of Endoscopic
The course objectives are:
· To review the endoscopic anatomy of the nose and sinuses.
· To provide the opportunity to improve the skills handling endoscopes and instruments in the
