Sinonasal Endoscopic Approach

Training course for surgeons treating pathologies affecting the sinonasal, orbital and skull-base anatomical area with multidisciplinary teams of otolaryngologists, neurosurgeons and maxillofacial surgeons. Following an exhaustive study of the anatomical region, real images are used to outline the possible surgical approaches which are subsequently implemented using a cryopreserved cadaver head in the specially adapted CMAT surgical area.
Total teaching hours 25.00 (15.00 horas presenciales + 10.00 horas elearning)
