Facial Plastic Surgery Flap Reconstruction Dissection Course

Course Leads - Steven Ross, Miles Bannister & Richard Green.
This one-day course held in the Surgical Skills Centre, provides a competency based approach to facial skin cancer tumour resection and reconstruction with grafts and local skin flaps. 
A series of structured exercises has been devised so that Trainees and Consultants in plastic, ENT and maxillofacial surgery can complete a variety of facial soft tissue surgery simulations based on the more common skin flap procedures encountered.  Delegates will be working in pairs on cadaver based dissection covering the following:
Educational aims:
Gain experience by simulating:
  • Random Flaps I: Advancement and Transposition Flaps
  • Random Flaps II: Rhomboid Flap, Bilobed Flap, Rotation Flap
  • V-Y Flaps
  • Total Nasal Reconstruction and the Paramedian Forehead Flap
The course provides:
  • Instruction in the use of instrumentation
  • “Hands on” practical anatomical and surgical skills experience using Thiel emalmbed cadavers
  • Evidence of skills training and competency 
  • Pre-course material and an attendance certificate
  • 6 CPD points



The University of Dundee is currently the leading centre in the UK using Thiel embalmed cadavers, thanks to the pioneering work of its Centre of Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID.) for more information on our Thiel courses
