A series of structured exercises has been devised so that Trainees and Consultants in plastic, ENT and maxillofacial surgery can complete a variety of facial soft tissue surgery simulations based on the more common skin flap procedures encountered. Delegates will be working in pairs on cadaver based dissection covering the following:

  • Random Flaps I: Advancement and Transposition Flaps
  • Random Flaps II: Rhomboid Flap, Bilobed Flap, Rotation Flap
  • V-Y Flaps
  • Total Nasal Reconstruction and the Paramedian Forehead Flap

The course provides:

  • Instruction in the use of instrumentation
  • “Hands on” practical anatomical and surgical skills experience using Thiel emalmbed cadavers
  • Evidence of skills training and competency
  • Pre-course material and an attendance certificate
  • 6 CPD points
