preface




    dear Colleagues and friends,

    it is a great pleasure for us to invite you to leipzig for the annual training course for
    ENT-surgery with Automatic Assistance Systems (ENT-AAS). This course has a 3-year
    tradition with more than 120 participants from 9 countries. We are very thankful for
    the opportunity to teach and train ENT-surgery with the special focus on modern
    techniques with assistance systems for the Or. The purposes of the ENT-AAS training
    course are simple: teaching the modern and international ENT-standards, training
    in standard and unexpected situations and, last but not least, understanding of the
    medical technology we are using on a daily basis. Navigation, Navigated instruments,
    Navigated Control, Endoscope- and instruments Manipulators are only some examples
    of these components.

    The course addresses ENT surgeons in the advanced practical training years and
    experienced operating surgeons. Following the increased numbers of topics and the
    wishes of numerous colleagues over the years we divided the program into a winter
    part for endo-transnasal and frontal skull base surgery and a late-summer part for
    ear, temporal bone and lateral skull base. We promise you a professionally organized
    course with many highlights in a family atmosphere. We are pleased to welcome you
    in January to the irdC and the university Hospital at the university of leipzig.

    Enter with us into the ENT surgical cockpit!

     exposition was held in 1190, making leipzig one of the world‘s oldest fair towns. it is
     also a cultural hub thanks to german composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Felix
     Mendelson Bartholdy who worked in the Saxon city.

     in 1989 leipzig Eastern german civil opposition started the so-called Monday
     demonstrations, which became a public symbol of criticism of the political system
     and ultimately led to the collapse of the german democratic republic and the
     reunification	of	Germany.	Today	the	city	of	508,000	inhabitants	is	still	famous	as	a	
     trade fair town, as the site of germany‘s second oldest universities, and as one of
     the country‘s greenest towns – approximately 50% of its is are covered by parks,
     gardens or woods. The leipzig university celebrates its 600th anniversary in 2009. One
