Mayo Clinic’s Microvascular Surgery Skills Training Course is a five day program focused on skill development in the use of microvascular surgical techniques. Limited to four attendees per session, the course allows each attendee to receive extensive, individualized training. The instruction incorporates demonstrations, microvascular skills practice and detailed handouts.
This course is designed for practicing surgeons, residents and fellows in surgery programs that utilize microvascular procedures. In addition, physician assistants, research personnel and other members of the surgical team assisting in microvascular procedures will also benefit.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Establish the skills necessary for the successful completion of end-to-end arterial and venous anastomoses, end-to-side anastomoses and their proper application.
- Integrate the skills practiced in the microvascular surgery training center to increase competency in the operating theater to decrease mistakes that lead to flap or tissue necrosis.
- Compare recent advances in microvascular surgery such as coupling devices and neurotubes for nerve coaptation to hand sewing techniques.
