The half day course is focusing on the training of flexor tendon repair techniques using 3D printed anatomical simulation models
Plastic and Orthopaedic Surgery SHOs and also medical students considering a career in these specialties.
The participants will join in lectures delivered by consultants on anatomy and then flexor tendon repair techniques and then practice their skills on the 3D printed simulation models.
After the completion of the course the participants should be comfortable with performing the following techniques:
- Adelaide core suture
- Modified Kessler core suture
- Cruciate core suture
- Epitendinous suture
- Silfverskiöld suture
- Identification of zone of injury and anatomy of flexor tendon
FREE- Participants will have to buy the model online (50GBP)
Flexor Tendon Repair Workshop using 3D printed simulation models
The course, in addition to the practical aspect, will also include both video and live demonstration of techniques performed by expert hand surgeons. Upon completion of the training session of the course, the participants are assessed on their performance at specific repair techniques by the mentors and are provided personalized feedback on how to improve their technique.
- Video demonstration material of techniques performed by Hand Experts provided to participants to review prior to attending the course.
- Innovative 3D printed models for anatomical accuracy
- 1:1 Mentoring and scoring after the completion of training.
Faculty to participants ratio: 1:3, assessment of participants skills in a 1:1 setting. All faculty tutors are consultant plastic surgeons or senior registrars with interest in hand surgery.
The successful participants of the course will be provided with a certificate signed by Ms Lauren Uppal
