Australian and NZ Meetings


The most dramatic complication in endonasal surgery is the inadvertent injury to the ICS causing massive bleeding which is often fatal. This course provides the unique opportunity for ENT and Neurosurgeons to improve their endoscopic skills in surgically managing this challenging complication, and to become familiar with the haemostatic options available. Ideally the neurosurgeon and ENT surgeon would register as a team, allowing the team to develop the skills together in a cooperative fashion.

Emphasis on this course is hands-on dissection providing the opportunity to learn how to position and manage the roinstruments during such a challenging surgical field, and enabling vascular control.


This will be a very intensive, but hopefully enriching course.




  • Vascular complications during skull base surgery and outcomes

  • Management of surgical field during EES

  • Surgical steps for venous and arterial models

  • Outcomes of vascular injuries
