Global Neuro Course—Complex Cranial Access


The course is based on the competencies defined in Global Neuro’s curriculum for skull base and features an international faculty of experts. It is delivered through a combination of lectures, case discussions, and hands-on dissection. Didactic sessions will focus on 3-D anatomy as well as on concepts, strategies, and modern techniques to deal with tumors, vascular injuries, trauma, etc. Dissections will cover the most common microsurgical and endoscopic approaches in a systematically guided manner and will be performed in a high-level laboratory with anatomical specimens. Special focus will be given to numerous case discussion sessions where participants are encouraged to bring their own cases to add to those presented by the faculty.

Goal of the course
This course addresses the complex anatomical structures of the skull base and surrounding areas, relevant approaches, and current concepts in the surgical management of skull base lesions, including trauma. It will enhance surgical skills in endoscopic and open approaches, with a focus on interdisciplinary management.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the complex anatomy of the skull base and its relation to the surrounding areas

  • Recognize the most relevant pathologies (tumor, vascular, trauma, etc)
  • Apply the most up-to-date treatment practices for these pathologies
  • Review the technical solutions that are available to perform skull base procedures
