Description

This course aims to improve both anatomical knowledge and operative skills in two areas: surgical approaches to access the facial skeleton and free vascularized flaps.  

This is a hands-on course with Thiel-preserved human anatomical specimens. Participants can either choose the surgical facial access part of the course or the free vascularized flap part. All practical sessions are preceded by detailed lectures on the relevant anatomical areas. Each participant has the opportunity to perform all procedures themselves. The surgical facial access part of the course is aimed at trainees in craniomaxillofacial surgery, ENT and/or head and neck surgery or as a refresher for more advanced surgeons. The free vascularized flap part of the course is for surgeons who would like to start or refresh their step wise anatomical based flap raising techniques.

After the course, participants should be able to:

Facial surgical approaches

  • Describe the anatomical rationale for the demonstrated facial accesses
  • Perform the various approaches to the facial skeleton
  • Recognize the surrounding anatomical hard and soft tissue structures
  • Select and perform facial accesses

Free vascularized flap

  • Explain the criteria for flap selection
  • Describe and recognize the relevant anatomy for the most commonly used free vascularized flaps
  • Recognize the surrounding anatomical structures
  • Perform the selected free flaps
  • Perform free flaps, flap raising, and reconstruction

Please take note that this course consists of two focus areas. Registration is possible for either 'surgical access to the facial skeleton' or 'free flaps'.
