All Day
Aimed at those with little or no endoscopic experience to complement our 3-day advanced course, this course aims to allow delegates to gain the necessary basic knowledge and practical experience required at the start of neuro-endoscopy training.

To improve the training in the field of neurovascular surgery, we try to simulate the real surgery with our Taiba Aneurysm Model. Endoscopic assisted endovascular creation of cerebral aneurysms in different location in cadaveric heads preserve the anatomy of the brain and therefore the skills such as opening the sylvian fissure, evacuating subarachnoid blood, opening the lamina terminalis, application of the clip and avoidance of injury to surrounding neural and vascular structure can be simulated with this model.
