  2. Extended Approach to Anterior Cranial Fossa

Each candidate will independently dissect and perform

  1. Elevation of Vascularized mucosal flap
  2. Expose the Sphenoid sinus, Sellar floor & Pituitary fossa
  3. Identify important anatomical land marks in the sphenoid sinus
  4. Expose the anterior cranial fossa and identify important landmarks

Neuro Endovascular Simulation Workshop

Venue: Johnson & Johnson Pvt Ltd, No. 64/66, Johnson House, Senapati Bapat Marg, Mahim, Mumbai – 400 016

Contemporary treatment of neurovascular disease until few decades back was microvascular neurosurgery. However, in last decade Endovascular Neurosurgery has taken rapid stride forwards and has now become an alternate accepted method of treatment for cerebrovascular problems.

The aim of the workshop is to sensitize Neurosurgeons & Neurologists about Endovascular Neuro Intervention.

The workshop will consist of Didactic lectures and Hands-on exercises of various endovascular procedures that would include cerebral angiography, aneurysm coiling & thrombectomy on simulator based models.

The workshop would be an ideal platform not only for learning the basics of Neuroendovascular surgery, but would be an ideal platform for delegates to interact with senior experts. The registration is limited to 18 delegates on first-cum first basis.

Microvascular Anastomosis Workshop

Venue: Johnson & Johnson Pvt. Ltd., No. 64/66, Johnson House, Senapati Bapat Marg, Mahim, Mumbai - 400 016

Cerebrovascular diseases are among the most widespread diseases with significant morbidity and mortality rates. Microvascular anastomosis techniques are important for revascularization surgeries required in management of complex cerebral aneurysms, skull base tumors, and cerebrovascular insufficiency.

The objective of the Microvascular Anastamosis Workshop is to expose the delegate to the basic training of micro vascular anastomosis. It includes handling of micro instruments, suture materials and small vessels.

At the end of the workshop, the delegate shall have learnt the basic skills needed for performing a microvascular anastomosis and the confidence to pursue and master the microvascular techniques by further practice.

Deep Brain Stimulation Techniques Workshop

Venue: P. D. Hinduja National Hospital, Veer Savarkar Marg, Cadel Road, Mahim, Mumbai - 400 016

The workshop aims to provide a quick glimpse into the indications, selection of ideal candidate for Deep Brain stimulation in movement disorders followed by details of imaging modalities to identify the targets commonly used during movement disorder surgery and imaging in the postoperative period. The technique of conducting DBS operation will be discussed in detail 4nd use of various methods adopted to place the electrodes at the target. We shall conclude with the faculty discussing their individual technique and a group session with the experts. The workshop is an ideal opportunity for young and interested neurologists and neurosurgeons keen on starting a movement disorder surgery program. The delegates will have clear understanding on the methodology of conducting DBS surgery at the end of the workshop.

Comprehensive Epilepsy Workshop

Venue: KEM Hospital, Acharya Donde Marg, Parel, Mumbai - 400 012

The objective of this cadaveric workshop is to familiarize interested participants in drug resistant epilepsy and various epilepsy surgeries, which will enable to improve patient care.

There will be elaborate hands on cadaveric workshop on the anatomy of temporal lobe and various approaches to mesial temporal lobe including anterior temporal lobectomy, amygdalohippocampectomy, multiple subpial transections and corpus callosotomy. The workshop would also entail didactic lectures on presurgical evaluation of drug refractory epilepsy including Interictal and Video EEG monitoring, Neuropyschology, Psychiatry, Neuroradiology and Nuclear medicine.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify mesial temporal lobe structures and its anatomical relations to each other
  • Describe anterior temporal lobectomy and surgical exposure
  • Describe and better understand amygdala and hippocampal anatomy
  • Describe presurgical evaluation of epilepsy and its related comorbidities
  • Identify multiple subpial transections and corpus callosotomy


Epilepsy surgery: Prof. Dattatraya Muzumdar, Dr. Abhidha Shah

Epileptology and Presurgical evaluation: Prof. Sangeeta Ravat

Registration: 20 delegates on first-come-first basis

Neuromonitoring Workshop

Venue: Dr. L. H. Hiranandani Hospital, Hillside Rd, Hiranandani Gardens, IIT Area, Powai, Mumbai, Maharashtra - 400 076

Date: December 4, 2019

Timing: 8.00 am to 4.00 pm

Registrations: 20 on First-come-First basis (Registrations will close after 20 slots are filled up)

The Association of Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care (ANACC), Mumbai, invites you to attend a Neuromonitoring workshop.

With rapid advances in neurosurgical techniques in brain and spine surgery, neurosurgeons are aiming for more complex and radical surgeries, in which preservation of function becomes extremely important. Intraoperative Neurophysiological mapping and monitoring (IONM) of brain function remains the Gold Standard in achieving this goal. IONM refers to the use of electrophysiological techniques to test the physiological integrity of the neural elements of the patients undergoing these procedures. This workshop aims to highlight the role of various mapping and monitoring techniques. A live demonstration, along with talks will aim to cover all the issues related to intraoperative monitoring.

Topics covered by lectures and on workstations, with demonstrations on volunteers (except MEP) include:

  • EEG
  • TCD
  • Extrtracranial vessel Doppler USG
  • SSEP
  • BAER
  • MEP
  • Cerebral Oximetry
  • Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring

This comprehensive Workshop is designed for those who want to expand their knowledge of intraoperative neuromonitoring or who want an excellent refresher on IONM basics. It will be useful for neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists and neuroanaesthesiologists.
