Brain Tumor Surgery Workshop:
The Pakistan Society of Neuro-Oncology (PASNO) and the Department of Surgery at the Aga Khan University Hospital conducted a pre-symposium (2ANOS) brain tumor surgery workshop on August 28-29, 2021, in collaboration with Technology Innovation Support Center at the Aga Khan University. It was Pakistan´s first-ever brain tumor surgery workshop. In this workshop, participants (neurosurgery trainees and consultants) joined from the whole country. This workshop featured lectures by national and international experts, demonstration of microsurgical techniques, and hands-on practice on animal brains and 3D printed skulls. In this event, participants practiced different craniotomies on 3D models, removing artificial brain tumors using microsurgical techniques while utilizing microscopes, loupes, suction device, and ultrasonic aspirator on animal brains. Post-workshop feedback by the participants was encouraging, and we plan to organize this workshop twice every year from now on.
