S018 - Regional Reconstruction

Saturday, February 17; 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Apply principles of effective surgical design and technique to achieve reproducibly excellent results for flap reconstruction of the central face.
  • Discuss the tissue mechanics and relative indications for sliding flaps, lifting flaps, and interpolation flaps of the central face.
  • Identify wound characteristics that require modification, combination, or supplementation of flaps to preserve free margins and contour.

Description

This practical session will illustrate with photos and videos workhorse reconstruction options for cutaneous defects around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Relevant anatomy will be reviewed to provide a basis for assessing cutaneous defects and to help design and execute reconstructions that recreate normal contour. The session will focus on classic reconstruction designs and demonstrate when modification is necessary to avoid complications and to attain aesthetic results. This survey course includes ample time for questions and audience interaction.
