Esser Masterclass: Local Flaps
Thursday, 31st May 2018—Friday, 1st Jun 2018
From the department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery in the Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands..
Soft tissue coverage of the upper extremity continues to be a challenging and evolving field. The priorities in soft tissue reconstruction for the upper extremity are to restore form and function. In the era of free flaps, local flap coverage options for the upper extremity are sometimes forgotten. Therefore, a two-day course was designed (31 May- 1 June 2018) with theoretical and practical sessions offering a wide range of local flaps options for coverage of the upper extremity from fingertip to shoulder(www.essermasterclass.com). All practical sessions will be performed on fresh frozen cadavers with two participants per extremity.
