I am very happy that I can get in to the hands on dissection cadaver course in SARC 2019 in Singapore. Beginning with the trainer that well known as the expert in their speciality from all over the world. From the 1st day, Dr Leong Jern-Lin welcomed us and made us easy to adjust our self in the dissection. Basic FESS explanation and dissection by Prof Sethi (our well known Master in Country around South East Asia) gave us advantage perception of Basic FESS especially frontal surgery, followed by Prof Paolo Battaglia and Prof Lavide Locatelli who gave us more understanding about Modified Lothrop Surgery and Skull base Surgery. On the 2nd day, Dr Janakiram (India) and Prof Ricardo L Carrau (USA) gave us more understanding about skull base conceps surgery, followed by explanation of extend maxillary sinus surgery for tumors around it and behind it ( Medial Maxillectomy, Transpterygoid to ITF, Modified Denker approach and last Endoscopic Nasopharyngectomy). For all above the FESS dissection course, for me it is incredible. Thank you APOST for giving me the opportunity to get more knowledge and more friends (lecturers or participants). Hope you can give this opportunity for more of ENT specialists in all Asian Region to be better in this field together, better for us and better for our students, residents and especially for our patients.

First of all, I would like to say thank you to all the committee members of APOST for giving me a chance to participate in 10th SARC and FESS workshop. I am very familiar to APOST, this is my third time joining APOST courses. I am confident in basic FESS and my learning curve to step on advanced FESS. During the workshop, I have learnt to do Draf 3, Medial Maxillectomy , Transpterygoid approach to ITF , Modified Denker's Procedure, Transsphenoidal Trans-seller pituitary and cavernous sinus approaches. I have no time to do endoscopic nasopharyngectomy and pericranial flap. But I don't mind, I am very satisfied in what I have learnt. After the course, I am confident to do Draft 3 , Medical Maxillectomy, Modified Denker's procedure, Transpterygoid approach to ITF and Transsphenoidal Trans-seller pituitary approach. I have learnt good technique of doing advanced FESS. My favorite part is Draft 3 and Medial Maxillectomy. I love to do Transsphenoidal pituitary surgery too. I think, I can step onto advanced FESS and skull base surgery after getting experience from this APOST course.

This 2-day FESS course is very well organized with a lot of hands-on opportunities to operate on the cadaveric noses. The demonstrations were given by renowned rhinologists and skull base surgeons with vast experience in this field where they gave us invaluable surgical tips that can be applied in our own operations. The allocated instructors in each table were also very knowledgeable and approachable and were very good at guiding us through our dissections. The course is well paced with plenty of time for each dissection module. I highly recommend this course to any ENT surgeons who want to continue to learn and improve their rhinology and skull base surgical skills.
The course will consist of demonstrations performed by expert faculty and hands-on dissection on frozen cadavers.
This workshop is suitable for ENT specialists pursuing higher surgical rhinologic training in advanced FESS procedures.
