The dissection of the cadaveric temporal bone is an integral part of an ENT surgeon’s training, because of the complicated anatomy, vital neurovascular structures, and organs located in it. The advancement in technology and incorporation of innovative techniques, compel even a skilled surgeon to practice a new method on the cadaveric temporal bone, as the steps mentioned about the new techniques in textbooks or research articles may not be as detailed as required [1].
