Course Overview

This two-day hands-on cadaver course for oral and maxillofacial surgeons and residents will provide up-to-date education on the management of maxillofacial trauma, with particular focus on soft tissue injuries.

The first day of the course will cover a wide range of maxillofacial soft tissue injuries, including airway management and peri-orbital and vascular injuries. A multi-disciplinary and diverse group of faculty will share their experiences and provide focused discussions on the management of these injuries based on their areas of expertise. 

Day two will be spent completely in the hands-on cadaver laboratory. This will enable participants to perform procedures that were covered during the didactic portion of the course. Procedures, such as local tissue flap reconstruction, tissue expanders, and airway intervention, will be demonstrated and performed.
