MICROSURGICAL TRAINING AND NEUROSURGERY: THE PERFECT BLEND
Additional to our previous edition of this workshop, we have included a practical part for our participants following the live demonstration performed by Dr. Victor Volovici.
In the first part, a theoretical lecture will be followed by a demonstration of a microvascular anastomosis technique, as well as an interactive demonstration on a live rat of an intermediate level anastomosis, performed by Dr. Victor Volovici. This part will end with a discussion on the future and directions of cerebrovascular microvascular anastomoses.
The second part of the workshop aims to provide an insight into a cutting edge procedure: surgery under the microscope. It will include an introductory presentation regarding microsurgery, the instruments that are used in this field, together with the correct handling of the surgical microscope. Among this, dexterity excercises and last but not least, knots and sutures under the microscope on non-biological material will be performed by the participants.
