Over 100 doctors from all across the state attended the two-day workshop conducted by the ENT department at Baroda Medical College (BMC). The workshop,which concluded on Sunday,was part of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) programme that focused on live demonstration of anatomy and surgeries conducted in ENT operations.
This was for the first time that the BMC has conducted a cadaver dissection with a two-way video conferencing workshop along with a live telecast of the operation to the participating doctors.
While the department used nine cadavers to demonstrate the anatomy and operation techniques,it also demonstrated live operations of three patients for Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF),Rhinorrhea,allergic Fungal sinusitis and chronic sinusitis.
The workshop was preceded over by ENT specialists Dr Nishit Shah from Mumbai and Dr Tulsidas from Chennai who performed the cadaveric endoscopic surgeries.
We had senior ENT surgeons as well as other practising surgeons at the workshop. The main purpose behind the workshop was to get the doctors a hands-on experience and exposure at such a workshop.
We had over 18 doctors who were assisted by the experts while they performed the operation, said Rajan Iyer,head of the department,ENT,Baroda Medical College,and the organiser of the workshop.
