The Liverpool Head and Neck Centre is proud to host an intensive two-and-a-half day course which aims to provide an in-depth theoretical and practical overview of transoral laser treatment for tumours of the larynx and pharynx. This course is suitable for consultants and higher surgical trainees in Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
This course will teach participants transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) using the CO2 laser on Thiel soft-fix cadaveric specimens. Participants will be taught TLM techniques for cancers of the glottic larynx, supraglottic larynx, tonsil, base of tongue and hypopharynx using a variety of laryngoscopes and high powered microscopes with the CO2 laser micro-manipulator. There will be 2 dissectors per Thiel cadaver.
This course will consist of lectures and expert panel discussions on the first two days, while the third day focuses on instructional sessions and supervised cadaver dissection. The lectures and discussions on Monday and Tuesday will be held at the North West Cancer Research Centre, whist the hands-on laser dissection on Wednesday will be held at the Human Anatomy Resource Centre. Both venues are within a short walk of each other.
The course is limited to 10 dissectors and early booking is advised.
