Dear friends and colleagues!

      We invite you to an International Educational Course with Hands-on Workshop on cerebral and ventricular neuroendoscopy which will take place in Moscow on the 24-26 November 2021. This is one of the main official events of International Federation of NeuroEndoscopy (IFNE).
       Despite the ongoing pandemic the Course is planned as an in-person for 20 participants and 10 tutors/speakers. It became possible due to the improvement of epidemic situation in Russia and absence of restrictions for organization of social events.
       This workshop is designed to offer to the participants the best possible update on the status and development of intracerebral and intraventricular neuroendoscopy by all the main experts in the world. This goal is reached through high level, highly focused lectures addressing all the pathologies that can be treated endoscopically (hydrocephalus, arachnoid cysts, congenital malformations, tumors and others, with special attention on indications, preoperative planning, surgical technique and complication avoidance.
        Together with lectures, participants are offered a very intensive, highly tutored hands-on training in all neuroendoscopic techniques. Ten working stations fully equipped with the best possible technologies available (different kinds of endoscopes, neuroendoscopic ultrasonic surgical aspirators, endoscope assisted microsurgery, endoscope assisted craniosynostosis surgery, 3D endoscopes) are ruled by world experts in the technique simulated at each working station, with a trainee/tutor ratio of 2/1 per working station, with several hours of continuous tutoring, from the most basic procedures through the most advanced technique, both on high-level anatomical models and living animal models.
