2nd Tympanoplasty and stapedotomy hands-on training day, Leuven (Belgium)
Temporal Bone - Skills Lab in Leuven, Belgium 11th October, 2018
A full day of temporal bone training took place in the NKO Skills Lab of the University Hospitals in Leuven, Belgium with fresh specimens and a one-to-one instructor to participant set up. The various tasks and experiences included the preparation of the masteoid and later the chance to do partial and total reconstruction with KURZ implants. Further, the participants learned about cartilage harvesting, slicing and foot plate reconstruction with the help of the KURZ Cartilage Punch. And last but not least, they had the chance to perform Stapedioplasty with a trial of the three stapes prosthesis types: crimping, clipping and heating. All of this was combined with presentations and knowledge-sharing.
We want to thank Atos Netherlands for the effort and we are looking forward to the third Skills Lab.
