Otological surgery is a spatially complex procedure due to the intricate microanatomy of the structures involved. Due to the deep location of the relevant anatomy and underlying pathology, 3D visualization or stereoscopic vision of the operating field is essential to achieving optimal outcomes in ENT surgery. The common 2D visualization in ENT surgical education with the use of a monocular for student observation of the surgical field has always presented a major teaching challenge. The introduction of 3D teaching in ENT surgery training has significantly improved surgical otolaryngologist education in the operating room.
