Soft Tissue Surgery
This evening meeting will cover the basics of wound care from the initial management of traumatic wounds to the choice of dressings during wound healing. We will cover in detail the management of different types of traumatic wound and also look at the management of bite wounds. We will discuss the many different types of dressings available and indications for their use. We will also briefly cover some of the more recent innovations in wound management including vacuum assisted wound closure (VAC).
There should be time to discuss any interesting or challenging cases that delegates have been dealing with.
If you are bamboozled by bandages or disorientated by dressings, then this could be the course for you!
