8th Istanbul Microneurosurgery Course – Parts 1 & 2

June 7 — June 16

Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul Microneurosurgery Course consists of 2 parts.
7 – 10 June: Part I “Hands on Microvascular Anastomosis”.
Renowned teacher of microsurgery, Rosmarie Frick will lead participants in learning the key points of micro suturing, vascular anastomosis and micro dissection.
11 – 16 June: Part II “Hands-on white matter dissection course and live surgery”.
In the first three days, participants will experience the three dimensional anatomy of the human brain. In the following days, live surgeries observed in 3D, lectures from experts and case discussions would demonstrate the value of mastering the brain anatomy in practice of neurosurgery. Please feel free to bring your interesting cases to be discussed.

This workshop is intended for neurosurgeons or ENTs from the world over, to learn and practice the technical skills required for skull base surgery. It has been structured to provide both didactic lectures and intensive hands-on cadaver dissection sessions, covering a broad spectrum of transcranial and endoscopic approaches. A panel of distinguished leaders in these fields will deliver lectures focusing on skull base anatomy, transcranial and endoscopic approaches as well as therapeutic strategies for skull base lesions. The scientific program will include a guest speaker session on a topic related to skull base neurosurgery, with lectures given by world-renowned experts. Topics previously discussed included acoustic neuroma, microvascular decompression, radiosurgery for skull base lesions, pediatric skull base neurosurgery and revascularization techniques. Attendees will benefit from the outstanding surgical lab environment of the IRCAD with state-of-the-art equipment provided by our dedicated sponsors. For hands-on sessions, a demonstration will be performed at the master station, transmitted onto a screen at each workstation. In the meantime, participants will work as a team of two on prepared injected fixed specimens under the guidance of a distinguished expert Faculty.
