This session will include live endoscopic endonasal surgery for resection of a large pituiatary adenoma. The live surgery and moderating will be performed by Dr. James Evans (neurosurgery) and Dr. Marc Rosen (otolaryngology) from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. This session will cover the endonasal endoscopic surgical approach, tumor resection, reconstruction techniques, and methods to maximize efficiency of the neurosurgery and otolaryngology team during concurrent surgery. Particular emphasis will be placed on techniques for the preservation of normal sinonasal strutures and function, while achieving maximal tumor resection.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Describe the steps for endoscopic endonasal resection of pituitary adenomas.
Review techniques for the preservation of normal sinonasal strutures and function.
Identify methods of maximizing efficiency when performing endonasal surgery concurrently with a neurosurgery and otolaryngology team.
