Cancer Reconstructive Surgery

Course Description

This presentation describes the practical application of reconstructive techniques that are used to close tissue defects after oncologic surgery. In particular, we will focus on techniques used to close "problem areas", such as the head and extremities, where primary closure often leads to excessive skin tension. Practitioners will learn techniques for free skin grafting, axial pattern flaps and specific case examples will be used throughout the lecture to provide an interactive discussion. It is expected that participants will be introduced to techniques that, depending upon their level of previous experience, can be directly applied in their general practice.
