The first day of this course will highlight rhinologic topics, including surgery of the skull base, frontal sinus, and orbit. The second day will focus on treatment of Eustachian tube dysfunction. Balloon dilation techniques of the Eustachian tube will be discussed and demonstrated. The third day will be dedicated to cutting-edge technologies for endoscopic ear surgery. Learning format will include lectures, panel discussions, and hands-on dissection laboratory of fresh cadaver specimens by limited subscription. Objectives At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to: • Identify patients who are appropriate candidates for advanced sinus surgery techniques, including: • Endoscopic surgery of the skull base • Frontal sinus drillout and obliteration • Balloon sinus dilation • Orbital decompression and DCR • Apply the latest management strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of Eustachian tube and other otologic disorders including: • Balloon dilation of the Eustachian tube • Eustachian tuboplasty (laser and microdebrider) • Surgery for patulous Eustachian tube • Surgery for cholesteatoma
