RECOMMENDED PREPARATION FOR THE FLAP COURSE
To derive the most benefit from the week, it is advised that the participant is aware of the uses and anatomical landmarks for raising the flaps. After registration for the course a password will be issued to access the online version of the Flap Manual. The participant should become familiar with the flaps described. During the surgery a printed version will be made available, as well as a memory stick containing the popular flaps.
It is clear from past experience that there is a wide range of speciality interest of participants who attend the course, and often there is a preference to carry out only a small number of relevant flaps in some cases. The flap course is ideal in offering only two participants per half of the cadaver, so the opportunity to dissect particular flaps is possible with the assistance of the partner. We recommend however that all modules are attended to maximise the dissection opportunities.
All cadavers are fresh frozen cadavers, using the most modern imaging and dissection instruments.
It is advisable that you bring magnifying loupes with you to facilitate dissection of free, perforator and small flaps.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Secretary to Mr James Woakes details found on the contact link.
