This webinar begins with the history and importance of visualization in the diagnosis and treatment of ear disease in humans, and now in veterinary medicine. Endoscopic anatomy of the healthy external and middle ear of the dog and cat will be covered, including the location of ossicles and facial nerve as critical structures to identify during middle ear surgery. Diseases of the external and middle ear will be reviewed with examples of enhanced diagnosis thanks to otoscopic visualization and/or intervention. Case Studies will be presented, including examples of diagnoses that were only made endoscopically (e.g cholesteatoma/keratoma) and examples of disorders treated with endoscopic instrumentation (e.g. removal of external ear canal foreign bodies)
