Goal of the course

This AOCMF Lighthouse Course shines a light on state-of-the-art techniques and best practices in head and neck reconstruction to optimize your ability to restore speech, mastication and cosmesis in your patients.

Course description

This two-day course is a hands-on human anatomical specimen event encompassing state of the art reconstructive techniques using a variety of free and pedicled flaps in the head and neck. Panel discussions and interactive debates around controversial topics will be used in an open forum that is evidence based. The expert faculty will share their tips and tricks in dealing with complications and salvage surgery.   

Participants will practice computer assisted planning for resection, reconstruction and the use of patient specific implants in real-time.

Two participants will share one-half of a human anatomical specimen for flap harvesting and one laptop for computer planning.
