X 2016.
Thank you! After elsa 2016.

Dear colleague, dear friend:
first of all, it was a pleasure having you with us participating in the 2nd Elsa course.
The format of the course was highly challenging and complex. We had numerous participants say that the live-surgery was outstanding in terms of cases selection, surgeons’ skills and quality of the HD broadcasting. Participants did greatly admire the outstanding operative skills of the operating surgeons and their bravery in entering the sands of the extremely demanding arena of endoscopic endonasal nasopharyngectomy, endoscopic transnasal resection of intraorbital intraconal haemangioma, skull base reconstruction for Sternberg canal CSF-leak, endoscopic bilateral craniectomy for ethmoidal ITAC, endoscopic transorbital resection of intraorbital intraconal haemangioma, and endoscopic removal of complex pituitary adenomas.
The palpable enthusiasm we witnessed in the lecture hall was a reflection of the tremendous efforts of the whole team in Varese that deserves a big applause. Patients had an excellent surgical care, and are recovering well and quickly.
Our goal was to provide a superior educational experience and we succeeded with flying colors, as far as we can judge from the many positive feedbacks we have got. We welcome feedback from you about areas for improvement and new ideas. We are trying to compile thoughts while they are fresh so we can build on the success.

In the meanwhile, we would like to encourage you to be with us in Milan next year for the 9th edition of our “International Biennale Milano Masterclass” (MiMa), to be held in March 24-28, 2017. This spectacular 9th edition of MiMa promises to be the most exciting event in 2017 in the field of endoscopic sinus/orbit/skull base surgery and rhinoplasty, featuring world renowned speakers, an enhanced scientific programme, exciting arenas for discussions and unparalleled networking with friends and colleagues from all around the globe. The unique beauty of Milan will undoubtedly provide an exceptional background for this exciting scientific exchange, offering an inspiring setting for a high-power meeting.
The new MiMa 2017 webiste www.milanomasterclass.it is online since last week, and logo and graphics have been completely redesigned. The first announcement www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZSNin4tA5A&feature=youtu.be has been recently launched.
If you wish to share your thoughts and present a short video on a personal surgical techniques, please email the title of your contribution to mail@pietropalma.it

We look forward to a time when we can meet again.
