First training course for petrous bone surgery using the STS training model at IRDC

April 2, 2011 IRDC conducted its first middle ear surgery training course for beginners with 12 participants. Led by Dr. Mathias Hofer, participants were able to learn the basic steps in preparation. They used the STS system (KARL STORZ Tuttlingen, Germany), which is the first system worldwide to offer training using fully synthetic models. Anatomical specimens are no longer needed thanks to the detailed models.
