Course Chairperson, Tanya K. Meyer, MD. Saturday, October 9, 2010
This activity is designed to provide the primary care practitioner with the most current knowledge regarding critical (i.e. cancer) and common (i.e. hearing loss) conditions that affect the head and neck. Topics will include sinusitis, voice and swallowing disorders, hearing loss, sleep apnea and pediatric issues. Didactics will be lecture based and focus on diagnosis and management with emphasis on identification and prevention of complications. There will be opportunity for audience participation.


Endoscopic Sinus Surgery:
Course Chairman: Ernest A. Weymuller Jr., MD. Future date: November 3-4, 2006. Category I CME credits available.

Annual course in the medical and surgical aspects of endoscopic sinus surgery. This course is based on hands-on cadaver dissection laboratory, video tape and live demonstrations, along with input from various visiting experts in the field.


Evaluation and Management of Laryngeal Disorders:
Course Chairman: Allen D. Hillel, MD. Category I CME credits available. Held every other year in the spring.

This course provides an update of current diagnostic and treatment modalities for a variety of disorders affecting the larynx in both the pediatric and adult population. The course is directed to the practicing otolaryngoligst-head and neck surgeon involved in the care of patients with laryngeal disorders and speech pathologists specializing in voice care. Emphasis is on laryngeal electromyography, unilateral and bilateral cord paralysis, mucosal lesions, surgical management of voice disorders including phonosurgery and an update on spasmodic dysphonia. In addition, the course features a cadaver lab session where techniques of phonosurgery are explored.


Facial Reconstruction/Local Flaps:
Course Chairman, Sam Most, MD. Held each year in conjunction with the Endoscopic Sinus Surgery course.

The Advanced Facial Flap Reconstruction course is presented by a multidisciplinary faculty drawn from the university and outside authorities. The course features didactic lectures, small group discussions, and fresh frozen cadaver specimens.

Head and Neck Surgical Anatomy Course:
Course Chairman, Robert B. Stanley, MD, DDS. CME Category I credits offered.

The course agenda focused on unique areas including but not limited to:

  • Extended access approaches to the facial skeleton, oral cavity, and oropharynx.
  • Basic craniofacial osteotomies and cranial bone graft harvesting.
  • Central deep neck compartment relationships for safe thyroid, parathyroid, and cricopharyngeal muscle surgery.
  • Partial laryngectomy, current indications and techniques.
  • Regional pedicled flaps.


International Symposium on the Advances in Otology/ Neurotology:
Course Chairman: Larry G. Duckert, MD, PhD. CME Category I credits offered.

This symposium was co-sponsored by the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center and the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery. It included a discussion of four major topics: diagnosis of hearing loss, stapes and middle ear surgery, skull base and vestibular schwannoma surgery and treatment of vertigo.


Office Based Laser Surgery Including LAUP Procedure:
Course Chairman, Eric Pinczower, MD. CME Category I credits offered.

The purpose of this course was to introduce physicians to the potential applications of CO2 Laser in the Otolaryngology Office. Special emphasis placed on the diagnosis and management of obstructive sleep apnea as well as the technique of the LAUP procedure.


Otology for the Non-Otolaryngologist:
Course Chairman: Larry G. Duckert, MD, PhD. CME Category I credits offered.

Many family practitioners' knowledge is deficient in the areas of management of ear disorders. There is a clear knowledge deficit regarding interpretation and assessment of hearing loss and balance disturbances within the sample population of clinicians. For this reason we have attempted, in a succinct fashion, to provide this info in the form of a course supported by our own faculty.

Principal topics discussed included medical diseases, conditions of the external, middle and inner ear (otalgia, swimmer's ear, otitis media, PE tubes in children, tympanic membrane perforations, facial paralysis and Bell's palsy, hearing loss, etc.), tinnitis, Cochlear implants, vertigo, etc.


Vestibular Influences on Movement:

Course Organizers: Albert F. Fuchs, Ph.D; James O. Phillips, PhD.; CME Category I credits offered.

This symposium was organized around workshops and poster presentations descussing controvercial issues in basic vestibular science. The meeting was sponsored by Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center, the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, National Science Foundation, and the National Institutes of Deafness and Communication Dissorders.


XXI Meeting of the Barany Society
:
Course Organizeres: Albert F. Fuchs, Ph.D.; George A. Gates, M.D.; Donald E. Parker, Ph.D.; James O. Phillips, Ph.D. CME Category I credits offered.

This international meeting of vestibular scientists and clinicians was sponsored by Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center, the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, and the National Institutes of Deafness and Communication Dissorders. It featured a series of bench to bedside scientific sessions that emphasized new developments in the translation of basic vestibular science to clinical practice.
