“Sinus Academy” in Berlin
Advanced Sinus Symposium
Refresher course on diagnostics and therapy of sinus diseases, autumn 2016

Dear colleagues,
we are very happy to invite you to the first meeting of the Sinus Academy in Berlin from September, 1st to 3rd 2016.

Endonasal ‘Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery’ (FESS) has evolved as the standard technique for treatment of nearly all kinds of sinus disease. It’s effectivity, however, is strongly dependent on an sound knowledge of individual microanatomy, optimum handling of microinstruments and up to date surgical strategies.

The meeting of the Sinus Academy in Berlin has two parts:

A. The first international hands-on FESS Course of the Sinus Academy in Berlin (September 1st to 2nd) strives for giving you the necessary support and input to optimize your surgical knowledge and techniques. One of the main features of the course is a concise curriculum taking together oral presentations in a balanced quantity of educational contents with corresponding personal exercises of the participants on high-quality anatomic specimens.

We offer to perform an decided array of endoscopic surgical interventions of the paranasal sinuses on anatomic specimens under intensive guidance by a well-rehearsed faculty which is dedicated to rational and truly minimum invasive endoscopic surgical techniques of all kinds.
Each of the 7 sections will be headed by a specific short lecture focussing on how to safely and efficiently perform each single surgical step. Enough time is given subsequently for extensive personal dissection from partial uncinectomy to complete pansinusoperation. Besides, a few lectures will present you indispensable basic knowledge for FESS.

Special highlights of the hands-on FESS course are:
  • Training places for dissection are very well-equipped with HD-videoendoscopy, a large variety of
    microsurgical instruments, shaver and navigation.
  • Specific adjunctive course material like a CD-ROM showing essential videoclips of all important
    surgical steps as well as accompanying hand-outs are inclusive.

B. Attached to the FESS-Course a unique, separate Advanced Sinus Symposium of the will take place on September 3rd presenting a refresher course focusing on the most relevant and up to date aspects of diagnostics and therapy of sinus diseases. A series of coordinated lectures will cover e.g. acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, allergic rhinitis and also sinunasal tumors. Current evidence and new aspects of nosology of sinus disease besides concepts and techniques of endoscopic sinus surgery will be discussed.

We would be pleased to welcome you in the remarcable ambience of the new congress center located in the former “Kaiserin-Augusta-Hospital” in Berlin, Scharnhorststraße 3.

Looking forward to meeting you in Berlin
