This webinar begins with the history and importance of visualization in the diagnosis and treatment of ear disease in humans, and now in veterinary medicine. Endoscopic anatomy of the healthy external and middle ear of the dog and cat will be covered, including the location of ossicles and facial nerve as critical structures to identify during middle ear surgery. Diseases of the external and middle ear will be reviewed with examples of enhanced diagnosis thanks to otoscopic visualization and/or intervention. Case Studies will be presented, including examples of diagnoses that were only made endoscopically (e.g cholesteatoma/keratoma) and examples of disorders treated with endoscopic instrumentation (e.g. removal of external ear canal foreign bodies)
The ENDOSCOPY Talks™ series brings together some of the most influential people in the field of endoscopy to discuss current best practices and emerging trends within the ever-expanding field. Each speaker will elaborate on a particular topic within Endoscopy. The talks will each be approximately one hour in length, with the time divided up between presentation and discussion.
Designed to benefit those performing endoscopic procedures as well as those interested in incorporating endoscopy into their practice, the Talks are free for everyone to view either the live or as recorded sessions. The Talks will be streamed live on the dates and times listed below.
ENDOSCOPY Talks™ is made possible through a grant by KARL STORZ and are produced and distributed through Colorado State University’s Veterinary Continuing Education Program.
