Evandro de Oliveira
Jacques Morcos

In this station, far lateral approach including drilling of the condyles will be performed. The spectrum of different exposure from minimal to maximum will be performed under supervision and the pertinent anatomy will be reviewed. Removing the C1 lamina followed by transposition of the vertebral artery will be performed. Later, the participants will perform trans jugular and trans tubercular approaches and learn the anatomy first hand with and without the microscope. The participants will be able to see the anterior aspect of the pontomedullary junction through this approach and examine all the neuromuscular structures.
