Balloon dilation techniques of the sinuses and Eustachian tube will be discussed and demonstrated. The third day will be dedicated to leading edge technologies for endoscopic ear surgery. Learning formats will include lectures, panel discussions, and hands-on dissection laboratory of fresh cadaver specimens by limited subscription.
