CTEC's two day workshop with 100% dissection time will provide surgeons and trainees with the opportunity to learn new skills and practice performing unique and complicated vascular exposures crucial for training. This popular workshop is offered on a biennial basis and will next be offered in 2024.
This workshop, based in CTEC's state of the art surgical workshop at The University of Western Australia enables detailed anatomy revision and enhanced operative knowledge.
The workshop utilises superior teaching models - fresh frozen cadavers which have undergone arterial gelatine injection to enhance arterial/venous discrimination. There will be two participants per cadaver.
Pre-reading will be provided so all workshop time is spent on dissection.
The sessions are fully interactive with an emphasis placed on knowledgeable faculty who provide superior training and immediate feedback in a practical and controlled workshop environment. An anatomist will be part of the Faculty to assist with immediate advice and guidance.
Examples of exposures which will be included are:
- Distal internal carotid with mandibular subluxation
- Retroperitoneal aorta
- Lateral popliteal
- Major visceral arterial and venous exposures
Please note that this workshop will not cover techniques of vascular surgery nor commonly used approaches to the abdominal aorta, carotid and common femoral which is covered in other courses.
- Online pre-reading
- Fresh frozen human cadaveric dissection
- All meals and refreshments
