The Liverpool Head and Neck Centre is proud to host an intensive two-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-manipulators.
This course will consist of lectures and expert panel discussions on the first day, while the second day focuses on instructional sessions and supervised cadaver dissection. The course will be held at the Human Anatomy Resource Centre at the University of Liverpool.
