Dissection is an important learning tool for any surgical procedure especially in endoscopic nasal and sinus surgeries as it demands coordination of hand movements under endoscopic visualization in a narrow three-dimensional nasal and sinus cavities [1, 2]. A number of modern simulators and sinus models are available for hands-on real-time dissection. Cadaver dissection has no substitute and dissection-based teaching is crucial to anatomy education till date. Surgical training tools are equally important and traditional training helps the residents in attaining surgical dexterity.
