About the course
This course is aimed at providing surgical trainees interested in plastic surgery or junior surgeons in plastic surgery with a sound foundation of the surgical principles pertinent at this level. The day will predominantly consist of hands-on practical skills workshops on animal tissue and simulated models, which will provide the attendee with the opportunity to design various local flaps, practice various surgical approaches to the hand, and gain a thorough understanding of the various methods of flexor and extensor tendon repairs. The day, with a high delegate-to-tutor ratio, will cover the principles and designs of local flaps, the execution of various types of Z-plasties, and the assessment of hand, wrist and forearm injuries. It will also discuss the surgical approaches to different hand conditions and the principles of flexor and extensor tendon repair techniques and their rehabilitation.
