From Mar 17, 2021 until Mar 19, 2021
The First Part is designed to introduce sialendoscopy to newcomers and to provide key concepts.
One whole day intensive hand’s-on is the central element of this part, as the participant needs to be familiar with the sialendoscope, the technique of basket retrieval, the laser fragmentation of stones, and the high pressure balloon dilatation of strictures. Sialendoscopy being a minimal invasive technique, the handling of the papilla is probably the most challenging difficulty: The participant will receive a step by step and rigorous training on fresh pig heads, as well as a surgical training for combined techniques.
Finally, the decisional tree will be thoughtfully discussed and the different techniques demonstrated to participants in order to demonstrate the importance of sialendoscopy as a highly sensitive and specific diagnostic but also interventional tool.
The Second Part will start with an express hand’s-on training on Salivary Gland Ultrasound, so that the participants will be able to start ultrasound as a diagnostic feature helping them in their daily sialendoscopy practice.
A whole day of live surgery, with 3D demonstrations from the operating room in Geneva, and transmissions from 3 international sialendoscopy centres from various continents will help the participants to understand the difficulties and to learn trick and tips for their future practice.
The last day will be dedicated to novelties in the field, salivary stenting, advanced techniques and to the always successful video contest with election of the funniest video of sialendoscopy.
Registration to an ESTC course will give you FREE 2019-2020 iSIAL Membership.
Material needed for the course (white coats, gloves, masks and surgical equipment) will be provided at the University Medical Center.
