Détails de la formation

The Advanced/Super Microsurgery course involves 40 hours of one-on-one, individualized training of microsurgical and supermicrosurgical techniques in a small class environment where students can learn at their own pace.

 

In this course, students will brush up on the microsurgical skills they have learned in the Basic Microsurgery course, and then perform procedures incorporating the femoral and epigastric vessels (0.3-1.0 mm diameter), carotid vessels, and various free tissue transfers.

 

For students who are interested in more technical exercises or practice more complex procedures such as lymphatic vessels anastomoses or surgeries that pertain to their specialties, can choose to do so during last two days of the course by choosing different exercises.


***NEW***

A Neurosurgical focus is now available

 


 

Qu'allez-vous apprendre ?

  • Brushing up on basic microsurgery procedures
  • Performing carotid end-to-end and end-to-side bypass anastomoses
  • Performing an interpositional vein graft using the epigastric vein for the graft (1 mm diameter)
  • Performing a groin cutaneous free tissue flap using the femoral vessels as the pedicle
  • Performing a groin cutaneous free tissue flap using the epigastric vessels as the pedicle with 11-0 nylon (supermicrosurgery)
  • Performing an exercise that's tailored to the student's specialty, such as a vasovasostomy, vasoepididymostomy, a Fallopian Tube repair, a serratus anterior muscle flap, or a renal transplant
  • Interpositional SIEV graft between SIEA
  • SIEA bypass
  • End-to-end anastomosis of the Superficial Inferior Epigastric Artery (SIEA) and Vein (SIEV)
  • End-to-side anastomosis of the SIEA to SIEV (AV fistula)

Avantages de la formation

This course is an invaluable learning tool to surgeons, because of the degree of customization possible to tailor their curriculum for specialty specific training. Building off the skills learned in the Basic Microsurgery course, students will now be able to finesse their self-control, patience, handling of fragile tissues, attention to detail, manual dexterity, efficiency in completion of an anastomosis, and brain-hand-eye-foot coordination. Because these skills are transferable to other clinical professions, this course is a valuable learning experience for surgeons, clinicians, and researchers alike. Students who successfully complete the curriculum will receive an Advanced Microsurgery Certificate of Training.

Public cible

This course is for people who have previously completed the basic course and/or have previous microsurgical training who are looking to further finesse their skills in more difficult exercises.


 

Prérequis

Basic Course and/or equivalent level of previous microsurgical training.

The course and personel overpassed my expectations. Academic level and Hospitality were the Highest features I ever seen in an International trainning. I recommend it doubtlessly.

Dr. Christopher S.

The knowledge and experience of Yelena, assistance from the highly trained and capable interns such as Amro, and small group setting of the course (maximum of three) make this probably one of the best microsurgery courses in the world. I would highly recommend it if you'd like to learn micro from scratch or brush up and develop your existing skills. Many thanks!
