Sialorrhea Hands-On Ultrasound Workshop –  Limited number of attendees

Chronic bothersome Sialorrhea is defined as an excessive amount of saliva in the mouth due to any cause. Also, Sialorrhea can be controlled with the injection of Botulinum Toxin but it is largely underdiagnosed. Merz Therapeutics is pleased to invite residents, fellows, and early-career physicians but also experienced physicians who want to extend their skillset to an expert-guided ultrasound course for Sialorrhea. This course is designed to provide additional confidence with ultrasound-guided gland localization and practical tips and tricks for botulinum toxin injections. Participants will benefit from a small-group learning environment led by expert faculty, and each participant will receive significant hands-on time targeting glands with ultrasound.

Speaker: Gabriel Salazar (Barcelona, Spain)
Speaker: Alberto Albanese (Milan, Italy)
Speaker: Anna Castagna (Milan, Italy)
Speaker: Christina Costa (Amadora, Portugal)
