All of you had a chance to see the invitational post to this year’s 32nd course on microsurgery of the ME & auditory implants in Würzburg, Germany on the 17-19th February 2020.

Now, exactly one month later, we would like to share with you a few prime moments of this outstanding event hosted by Prof. Dr. S. Dazert and Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. R. Hagen. 

Incredibly enriching content of this course included live surgeries of Stapes, Tympanosplasty and Soundbridge as well as of Cholesteatoma, Revisions and CI plus skull-base surgery of auditory implants. 

Moreover, the introducing lectures were dedicated to the following topics:

  • Temporal Bone Preparation (by K. Rak)
  • Basics of Tympanoplasty (by R. Mlynski)
  • Surgical Treatment of Otosclerosis (by S. Dazert)
  • Surgical Treatment of Cholesteatoma (by S. Plontke)

Special lectures covered tips and tricks in Middle Ear Surgery (by J. Helms) as well as a hands-on temporal bone laboratory workshop , and last but not least the auditory implant lectures focused on bone conduction implants (by  J.Gavilán), active middle ear implants (by M. Zernotti), cochlear implants (A. Radeloff).

One of the highlights was definitely the HEARRING comprehensive lecture on the matter of the future of inner ear treatment (by H. Staecker) followed by another hands-on temporal bone laboratory workshop. 

To sum it up, the 32nd course on microsurgery of the ME & auditory implants in Würzburg was an overall success as this educating event contributed to more comprehensive, co-active, innovative surgical approaches.

On behalf of our HEARRING Team, we would like to thank all of the participants and organizers for making Würzburg event extraordinary.
