  • List common signs of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) otorrhea
  • Identify risk factors for spontaneous CSF leak
  • Appropriately identify chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) vs cholesteatoma
  • Identify patients who would benefit from ototopical therapy vs surgical intervention

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This program is intended for practicing ENTs and graduating senior residents interested in an otologic surgery update through a series of lectures and lab dissection sessions using temporal bone specimens. Faculty lectures will be complemented by closely mentored, hands-on lab sessions offering opportunities for dynamic interaction with faculty. Each participant will have access to a state-ofthe-art 10-station lab equipped with a microscope with a flat panel monitor and the latest dissection and drilling equipment.
