Hands-on training on the animal model, famous CIRAS lamb's head dissection, will be held on 25th and 26th February 2020 under the strict supervision of the tutors. The dissection will be performed in step-by-step manner patronaged by Karl Storz GmbH, Tuttlingen, Germany.
Number of participants is limited.
The hands on training on the lamb's head is an excellent preparation for all those intending to make a step forward in their education. The primary aim of the Course is to give a chance and motivation for the endoscopic surgery of the nose and paranasal sinuses for the beginners and to make possible exercises in getting skills in synchronous manipulating with the endoscope of various degrees in one hand and surgical work with the endoscopic instruments into the other hand. Our long lasting experience showed us that smooth bimanual work in this region is crucial for the good final results.
The participants are strongly recommended to prepare themselves for the hands on course as to make it really useful and pleasant event.
Prof. Mladina as a teacher in the Course will be more than happy if the participants will watch his personal video on this matter since they would see in advance every single step of the FESS Lamb's Head Dissection which will be performed in the same way during the Course itself. In case you are interested in this issue, please click on the video clip bellow.
In addition, Prof. Mladina wrote a booklet on comprehensive endoscopic surgical anatomy of the lamb's head. The booklets have been published by Karl Storz (in Croatian, English, Italian, Russian and Chinese languages) and should be available at the regional KS offices or local Karl Storz country representatives.
The booklet can be found also at: Endoscopic surgical anatomy of the lamb's head - Karl Storz
The candidates of the Course are strongly recommended to carefully read this booklet since the result of the dissection course could be excellent and participants more than happy!

"Cross stealing" technique for septal perforation closure. Rhinology 1995; 33: 174-6) before participating in the practical Course.
