International Symposium : Endoscopic Ear Surgery and Current Advances in Otology is organized by University of Minnesota and would be held during Sep 14 - 15, 2017 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis - University Area, Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of regional, national and international audience of Otolaryngologists and other clinicians involved in the management of otologic and neurotologic diseases. It will have a large focus on endoscopic ear surgery and will address the interest and needs of surgeons that have already developed endoscopic surgical experience, as well as surgeons new to this surgical approach. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
The field of Otology is undergoing a profound change. A New Era has begun. Endoscopic Ear Surgery, Eustachian tube dilation procedures and new imaging modalities are changing the way we treat patients with ear disease. With enriched knowledge and improved surgical access, we are moving to the New Era of functional ear surgery with focus on structure preservation and decreased rate of invasive approaches. The most prominent international experts and researchers in the field of endoscopic ear surgery and contemporary otology are gathering to present, discuss and explore the current dilemmas in treating ear disease through focused lectures, mini-seminars and interactive round table discussions.
Conference Highlights are :
• A large International faculty of leading experts in the field of Endoscopic Ear Surgery.
“How Do I Do It” sessions: our invited faculty will each present a short video clip of the same surgical step in otologic surgery to show different surgical techniques and approaches.
• “Clinical Cases Round Table Discussion” sessions: we will present various clinical case scenarios with pre-operative photographic documentation, imaging and hearing tests and have a panel discussion on the management of the cases with interactive participation by the audience through the audio response system (ARS).
• “Neuroradiology Quiz Bowl”: Imaging of otologic and skull base pathologies will be presented to the faculty in an interactive game of answering questions and management options with participation of the audience through ARS.
• Live Cadaveric Skype Session: A temporal bone specimen will be dissected through an endoscopic approach at the U of M lab and a live skype session will be televised in the auditorium with interactive participation with questions and answers from the audience to the surgeon performing the dissection.
• Video Demonstrations: Faculty experts will utilize concise brief surgical videos to illustrate challenging cases with discussion and rationale for management.
Conference Objectives are :
• Evaluate the options available for the diagnosis and management of chronic otitis media, cholesteatoma, hearing loss, eustachian tube disorders, middle ear tumors, and skull base lesions.
• Use evidence-based information to counsel patients regarding risks, benefits, and alternatives to medical and surgical treatment for chronic ear disease and hearing loss.
• Explain the principles, indications, risks and surgical techniques of endoscopic ear surgery and eustachian tube dilation procedures.
• Order and interpret preoperative radiologic imaging to diagnose and treat otologic disorders.
Describe the surgical anatomy of the temporal bone with emphasis on pathophysiology of ventilation pathways.
• Illustrate the principles and indications for transcanal endoscopic approach to middle ear pathology, discuss safe techniques, and apply risk reduction methods
