The 1st Liverpool Nasolacrimal and Orbital Dissection Course

This course is aimed at Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) and Ophthalmology higher surgical trainees (ST5-ST8), senior fellows and consultants looking to improve their understanding and surgical skills in joint ENT/ophthalmology nasolacrimal and orbital surgeries.

The course consists of half day tutorials and a full day supervised hands-on cadaveric dissection on Thiel embalmed cadavers at the state-of-the-art anatomy laboratory at the University of Liverpool.

Supported by experienced ENT and oculoplastic surgeons, topics will include surgeries for epiphora including DCR, orbital abscess drainage, management of ethmoidal artery haemorrhage and orbital decompression.
