F079 - How Would You Reconstruct It?

Saturday, February 17; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Analyze a defect and design multiple closure options
  • Appreciate that there are multiple options to close any given defect


In this session, reconstructive masters will present interesting cases from their practices and discuss the thought process behind approaching each defect. These are not necessarily the largest or most complicated surgical defects, but a curated selection of cases with multiple reconstructive options and teaching points. The speaker will present a defect to the panel and the panel members will comment on how they would approach the reconstruction. The speaker will then show how they repaired the defect and discuss why it did or did not work for that particular patient.
