Course Description

Reconstruction of complex facial defects require a wide range of
advanced surgical techniques to restore normal facial form and
function. Traditionally, post-oncological and post-traumatic defects
required procedures aimed at recruiting large volumes of distant
tissue to augment or replace lost or retracted soft tissue. Composite
tissue transplantation is the most aggressive example of this
paradigm. More recently, sets of reconstructive procedures have
been developed to provide the basis of craniomaxillofacial gender
This NEW two and a half-day comprehensive advanced-level
course combines:

  • Hands-on human anatomical session (Day 1)

  • Didactic sessions with lectures, panel discussions, and
    interactive debates that will encompass state-of-the-art
    reconstructive techniques to address these challenging
    problems (Days 2 and 3)


Target Audience

The course is aimed at experienced (upper level) trainees, early career
surgeons and experienced surgeons in Oral and Maxillofacial,
Otolaryngology-Head and Neck, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
