The most dramatic complication in endonasal surgery is inadvertent injury to the Internal Carotid Artery (ICA) causing massive bleeding which is often fatal. This course provides the unique opportunity for ENT and Neurosurgeons to improve their endoscopic skills in surgically managing this challenging complication, and to become familiar with the haemostatic options available. Ideally the neurosurgeon and ENT surgeon would register as a team, allowing the team to develop the skills together in a cooperative fashion.
Emphasis on this course is hands-on dissection providing the opportunity to learn how to position and manage the instruments during such a challenging surgical field, and enabling vascular control.
This will be a very intensive, but hopefully enriching course.
The 11th Adelaide Vascular Injuries Management Workshop (2017) will be held on the 22nd of November 2017, one day before our advanced FESS course.
