The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 14.00 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Endoscopic ear surgery (EES) is an emerging practice in the management of otologic disease. The field of otology is a mature specialty which allows for management of advanced ear disease, primarily relying on direct line-of-sight visualization with a binocular operating microscope. In order to access disease beyond this field of view, healthy bone must be drilled away and soft tissue must be divided and retracted, with secondary tissue trauma.

Advances in endoscopic optics, instrumentation, ergonomics, and surgical technique have enabled surgeons significant advantages in visualization, access, and removal of disease with a substantial reduction in removal or disruption of healthy tissue. In many cases, the traditional postauricular approach can be avoided, with surgery being performed entirely through the ear canal.

This emerging specialty is not yet practiced widely in the United States, however interest is strong and rapidly growing. Our course offers a broad overview of the state of endoscopic ear surgery. Didactic sessions will cover history of EES, extensive discussion of surgical techniques with multimedia content, and strategies for incorporating EES into practice for beginners through advanced practitioners. Hands on sessions in the temporal bone laboratory led by our course faculty will allow participants to experience and practice endoscopic techniques developed at our institution and by surgeons from around the world.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

Describe the instrumentation and techniques necessary to use EES for common otologic procedures

Analyze surgical cases and identify appropriate situations in which to employ EES

Demonstrate technical competence in basic EES techniques

Incorporate EES into clinical practice
