RHINO®-Workshop 2011

The 9th RHINO® Workshop was held September 14-16, 2011, in Hotel Gude and Elisabeth Hospital under the patronage of the Deutscher Berufsverband der HNO-Ärzte.

Part 1, also known as Continuing Education on Wednesday Afternoon, was opened with the category "Current events from the otorhinolaryngology department". Then an interdisciplinary contributor team provided information regarding the topic of facial plastic surgery and rhinology.

In Part 2 of the RHINO® Workshop, also known as Rhinosurgery Live, seven surgeries to the inner and outer nose were transmitted to the symposium location in HD quality using two cameras. The demonstrations included endoscopic rhinoplasty via a closed approach by the Swiss colleague Briner and a sectioning and resectioning technique of the alar cartilage for the deprojection of the tip of the nose by our colleague Riedel. The titanium nasal dilator developed by Prof. Brusis was implanted in a patient, a perforated septum was closed with a modified bridge-flap technique and a patient who had had prior surgery with costal cartilage had revision surgery with an L-beam (stable costal cartilage construct).

The RHINO® Workshop was evaluated again in 2011 (1 = excellent ... 5 = unsatisfactory).

Comments: Because of a lack of space for the over 100 participants, Part 1 was held at Hotel Gude for the first time. Thanks to the exceptional organizational talent of the two hosts Horst and Ralf Gude the Continuing Education on Wednesday Afternoon ran completely smoothly despite water damage which resulted in a major construction site at Hotel Gude.
