It is a pleasure to welcome you to the inaugural meeting of the British Neuroendoscopy Society (BNES) at Queen Square, London. The Society was founded as part of the International Federation of Neuroendoscopy (IFNE) to help the advancement of endoscopy within British neurosurgery through shared learning, training and support, and audit and research. The meeting is ideally suited for consultant surgeons with a subspecialty interest in endoscopy to keep abreast of recent advances and innovations, but senior trainees will also find the meeting an excellent overview.

All Day
Neuroanatomy Course This is a single day course aimed at covering clinically relevant neuroanatomy for junior doctors, dentists and students. The courses assumes no knowledge of neuroanatomy and builds from the ground up. By the end of course you should have a firm grasp of neuroanatomical terms, understand basic concepts about the development of the nervous system, appreciate its structure and how this can help localise lesions. Each attendee will receive a small amount of pre-course reading and a digital course companion guide.

This course is designed and put together by leaders in neuro-oncology, neurosurgery, neurology and neuro-anaesthetics with the aim of giving delegates a well rounded multidisciplinary approach to managing neuro-oncology patients. This will be ideal for SpRs in neurosurgery, oncology, neurology, radiology and anaesthetics to further their knowledge and cement their learning in the field of neuro-oncology. The small group size makes it a perfect forum for questions and discussions. The Harley Street Clinic 16 Devonshire Street, London W1G 7AF

Online Event Frontiers 2020 aims to showcase the latest scientific and clinical work in TBI. Invited speakers will be presenting work across a range of disciplines (e.g. neuroinflammation and biomechanics), alongside didactic sessions on the management of TBI. We are also accepting abstracts to provide researchers with a platform to present ongoing research.

Monday 29th - Tuesday 30th June 2020 Leeds Institute of Medical Education, School of Medicine, Worsley Building, University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9NL This course is designed for neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists at senior trainee and consultant levels who are interested in the most recent developments in endoscopic surgery of the cranial base and pituitary gland. This comprehensive two day course, limited to 12 delegates for six hands-on stations, is a presentation of minimally invasive endoscopic techniques for the anterior skull base and pituitary fossa. Experts on the subject will present the anatomical, pathophysiological and technical aspects of surgery along with risks, benefits, and complications such as CSF leak and outcomes. Also endocrinology, neuro-radiology and anaesthetic aspects of endoscopic anterior skull base surgery will be covered. Teaching is through hands-on cadaveric dissection with a 1:2 faculty to delegate ratio and lecture/video presentations including 3D anatomy of the paranasal sinus and skull base. Simulation stations will also be available throughout the course, which will provide more opportunity for hands–on practice.

1-2 October 2020 - Aimed at neurosurgical trainees & neurosurgical nurses The course is very ‘hands on’ with lots of ‘operating’. In addition to basic positioning and approaches, we cover a variety of different flaps, burr hole procedures, ICP monitoring, Stealth image guidance system, basic endoscopy, and some paediatric approaches using ‘paediatric Rowena’.
