Fundamental Principles of Microsurgical Anastomosis, Flap Designs and Tendon Repairs
Provided by Doctors Academy
About the course
This hybrid course will discuss the fundamental principles of microsurgical anastomosis, flap designs and tendon repairs. The theoretical component of the course will be delivered via Zoom on Tuesday 8th November 2022 (1800-2100 hours), and the practical component will take place at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Cardiff, Cardiff Bay on Saturday 12th November 2022 (0830-1800 hours).
Delegates will use mounted simulators to practise the basics of microsurgery. They will perform microsurgical repairs of nerves and vessels using animal models. They will also perform local flaps and Z-plasty on animal models, as well as tendon repairs.
