LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to apply their theoretical and practical competencies to surgical approaches to the anterolateral skull base for the treatment of brain diseases. Specifically:

  • acquire anatomical knowledge about simple and complex approaches
  • understand functional changes
  • understand clinical applications
  • acquire a range of views and techniques from specialists from different surgical disciplines
  • determine the best technique for treating similar pathologies in each case
  • perform surgical techniques on the cadaver using advanced technologies
  • experiment with microsurgical and endoscopic techniques
  • watch live or recorded activities and discuss cases with the experts
  • appreciate the importance of reconstruction associated with the surgical technique
  • acquire competence in evaluating clinical outcome
  • discuss potential clinical complications associated with the surgical technique
  • learn from the experience of international specialists
  • create a sharing environment that fosters long-term collaboration
