"Why Nerve Monitoring is Essential for Preservation of Hearing and Facial Function"
Tuesday, March 31, 2020
4:00 pm EDT, 1:00 pm PT
Speakers: Dr. VIncent DiNapoli, Neurosurgeon at Mayfield Brain and Spine and Dr. Joseph Breen, Otolaryngologist at UC Health in Cincinnati.
During this webinar, Drs. DiNapoli and Breen will explain how continuous nerve-evoked monitoring during surgery helps preserve hearing and facial function. They will discuss the use of probes to stimulate the facial nerve and map its location during tumor removal as well as continuous transcranial facial nerve MEP. Hearing function, if present, can be monitored with auditory brainstem response (ABR) or cochlear nerve action potentials (CNAP) to achieve the best outcomes. There will be time for questions following the presentation.
Q: Can I participate from anywhere?
A: Yes. All you need is a good internet connection (good enough to watch a YouTube video, for example) and the link in your confirmation email. It should be noted that some places of business have firewalls that prevent employees from accessing this type of event. If that happens, the webinar will be accessible as a recording and available on the ANA website.
Q: How long will the presentation be?
A: The actual presentation will last approximately 30-35 minutes following a short introduction. After that, we'll do a Q&A session lasting about 20 minutes. The entire webinar will last one hour.
Q: Will the presentation be recorded?
A: Yes, ANA members who cannot attend will be able to access a recorded version (audio and slides) on the ANA website about one-week after the presentation. That recording can be viewed at any time.
