Webinar participants will learn from leading pediatric otolaryngologist, Ken Kazahaya, MD, MBA, FACS, associate director of the Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, director of Pediatric Skull Base Surgery, medical director of the Pediatric Cochlear Implant Program, and co-lead surgeon in the Pediatric Thyroid Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia about advanced techniques in endoscopic ear surgery, as well as a method to potentially reduce intraoperative time, while performing tympanoplasty.
Additionally, participants will learn from Dr. Michael Hiles, PhD and expert on biomaterials and biological scaffolds about the pros, cons and performance of various biologic grafts, as well as autologous graft tissue. Furthermore, participants will learn how the physical properties of each graft type compares and how they effect the healing process in tissue, such as the tympanic membrane.
- Describe how different biologic graft's healing properties compare
- Explain advanced techniques in performing endoscopic ear surgery
- Illustrate how to save time in the operating room when performing endoscopic tympanoplasty
