Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to attend the

Anterior skull base hands on course
1st International workshop

which will be held from 22nd to 24th March 2018 at the Institute of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine in Belgrade and Clinic for neurosurgery, Clinical Center of Serbia

The Course will be organized by Serbian Neurooncology Society in cooperation with the Italian Society of Neurosurgery –SINCH.

This course is intended for surgeons who want to acquire knowledge and experience in endoscopic endonasal and anterior transcranial skull base surgery and improve the understanding of one of the most fascinating areas of the brain. Different midline and paramedian skull base regions will be approached, in order to provide a 360 degrees overview of the main neurovascular structures along the skull base surface. The mission is to provide a comparative understanding of the same anatomy as seen from the endonasal and the transcranial perspective.

Lectures and hands-on laboratory facilities will be provided. At the conclusion of the course, the participants should be able to discuss the latest advances and controversies in endoscopic endonasal and microsurgical transcranial techniques in skull base approaches and be confident with indications and principles of cranial base tumors management. The attendees should be able to demonstrate relevant skills in practical application of the main approaches, describing diagnostic problems and complications management strategies.

The capacity of the course is 30 active participants, which allows a ratio of 3 participants per cadaver.

There are approximately 14 lectures, with considerable experience of teaching on similar cadaver courses.

We believe that Belgrade is an excellent venue for our Hands-On course. The Institute for Anatomy has considerable experience and expertise in this field, and the city is easily accessible.

The registration fee for active participants includes two nights’ accommodation, lectures, hands on course, coffee break, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We are welcome you in Belgrade!

Prof. dr Danica Grujičić
