Professor Stammberger has, for the third time, invited 30 surgeons form Serbia and Montenegro for a theoretical course in FESS. This time, he adressed the more experienced surgeons which have started FESS after his first visit to Belgrade in 2002.
Endoscopic closure of CSF fistulas and pituitary surgery were demonstrated, the technique and pitfalls of these operations, as well as those in endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy, were largely discussed, as well as a number of general aspects of FESS. Our Society and the Storz Company have supported the event. Professor Stammberger donated his time and energy in his usual inspiring style, with a true firework of didactic brilliance. We thank him for his sustaining help to our partners in S.&M. and are looking forward to a next course in 2006.
