Course Dates: postponed until 2022
Course Director: Mr S. Lo, FRCS Consultant Plastic Surgeon
The course is aimed at the intermediate and advanced trainee and will cover all aspects of free, pedicled and perforator flaps. It is also relevant to consultants as it will cover more advanced flaps. Flaps covered will include basic workhorse free and pedicled flaps, but also include more advanced and topical flaps such as toe transfer, vascularized joint transfer and medial sural artery perforator flaps.
The course aims to provide as much hands on cadaveric dissection as possible, with guidance by internationally recognized microsurgeons. Although we provide a reading list, the course teaching should cover the essential aspects of flap anatomy, dissection and utilization.
Invited Professor Andres Rodriguez Lorenzo, MD, PhD
Clinical Chief and Associate Professor
Department of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery
Uppsala University Hospital
The teaching faculty will consist of several Consultant Plastic Surgeons from the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery unit, who will aid the trainees during the cadaveric dissection. Each Consultant has a sub-specialty microsurgical interest.
