The Science of Biologic Grafts in CSF Leak Repair and Skull Base Reconstruction
Friday, May 12, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT
Webinar participants will learn from Dr. Bradford Woodworth, residency program director for the University of Alabama, Birmingham and internationally recognized expert on sinonasal and skull base disorders, about advanced techniques for cerebrospinal fluid leak repair and skull base reconstruction with the use of biologic grafts.
Additionally, participants will learn from Dr. Michael Hiles, PhD and expert on biomaterials and biological scaffolds about the pros, cons and performance of various biologic grafts, as well as autologous graft tissue. Furthermore, participants will learn how the physical properties of each graft type compares and how they effect the healing process in tissue, such as the tympanic membrane. There will be a live question and answer session at the end of the webinar.
