” Thank you very much for organising what I consider to be an excellent course on perforator dissection. I had a very enjoyable time and took away a lot of useful information. I found it very helpful both for picking up tips on how to make my own ALT flap raising more efficient but also as a very thorough introduction to the MSAP flap…….I have already recommended you to my colleagues and trainees.”

”  Congratulations on the course. It was superb! I can’t imagine how much work went into putting that together. Really impressive ” .

” Thank you very much for an excellent 3 days. What a huge amount of work it must have taken to design and create a course of such high calibre – and it was really evident. The resources were excellent – from the use of videos, faculty knowledge and input, presentations and facilities for microvascular practice and cadaver dissection….. Thank you for a very valuable learning opportunity! I’ll hopefully return again – when I am a few years more senior!”

Comments from others

” Really excellent course, huge amount of preparation and organisation evident, highly recommended ”

” Fantastic faculty, excellent pre-course information, better than many courses including maps, if restaurants could be announced earlier this would allow booking hotels nearer. Third day reduce lectures/condense to increase time spent on cadavers. Three days perfect length. ALT and MSAP very valuable and excellent discussion of perforator dissection techniques. ”

” As a plastics trainee, I wondered if this may not be relevant but in fact it was all of importance and all aspects covered the interdisciplinary elements of head and neck reconstruction. Limbs and things vessels were good, not perfect but the best simulated vessels I have used, good elasticity. Excellent value. Excellent course, I would definitely recommend to all plastics trainees. Excellent videos of techniques and good amount of information presented before each flap. The amount of food and breaks felt about right, good sponsorship, particularly good having headlights, couplers and Stryker fibula kit. ”

” Addressed areas in plastics curriculum which are rarely well sufficiently taught. Systematic protocols which simplifies techniques/approaches more clearly than when I have been previously shown. Simulation vessels/chicken model good combination as protocol for chicken quicker than others to access vessels and limb and things vessels much better than other silicone ones I have used. Anatomy/operative steps would be more clearly signposted for cadaveric dissection, helpful to have steps on a board in dissection room and anatomy delineated more alongside the videos. ”

In anticipation of this and due to the huge financial burden placed on a new generation of surgeons, the East Grinstead H&N Research Group have developed and set the course at a low registration fee per candidate, however, there are only 16 places available on a first come basis.
