2nd Annual UT Southwestern Endoscopic Ear Surgery Course (RP1911D)
Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) is a recent development in the management of temporal bone pathology. Cadaveric lab dissections, lectures, panel discussions, case reviews, as well as question and answer sessions will be the educational modalities used in this course. Course participants should be able to identify clinically relevant anatomic temporal bone landmarks with the use of the endoscope. Course attendees will recognize the advantages and disadvantages of TEES as compared to traditional microscopic approaches to the temporal bone. Course attendees will be able to demonstrate specific TEES techniques using a cadaveric temporal bone model.
