DESCRIPTION & PROGRAMME

Lymphatic microsurgery is a field experiencing a continuously growing interest within the plastic surgeons community. This practical course focused on lymphatic microsurgery including over 15 hours of practical training fresh cadaveric material (with only 2 dissecting participants per operating table) is designed for residents and specialists in plastic surgery (worldwide) to learn or further refine their skills in lymphatic microsurgery.

One of the most challenging caveats to achieve success in lymphedema treatment is learning to perform the microsurgical lymphatic procedures from intraoperative identification of lymph vessels to performing lymphovenous anastomoses or harvesting a vascularised lymph-nodes to be used later on the same patient as free tissue transfer. Such skills can only be learned and mastered in the laboratory on experimental animal models and then further refined on human tissue.

The course consists mainly of practical exercises which will be performed under either loupe magnification.

The first practical session starts with a detailed introduction of the Lymphatic System, Physiopathology of the lymphatic system, the way to assess the lymphedema patient and the patient selection of lymphedema surgery followed by the way to rise the different types of vascularised lymph nodes.

The second day is dedicated to solve problems and the follow up in lymph node transfer, the way to perform a lipoaspiration in lymphedema and lipoedema patients and the surgical concepts of the Lymphatic disorders followed by practical exercices in the recipent vessels for lymph-node transfer.
