F063 - Techniques for Flap Success

Saturday, March 2; 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Envision multiple flap repair options for a given surgical defect.
  • Recognize that while there may not be a single ‘best closure’ for any given defect, certain flap types may be preferable to others.
  • Consider critical elements in flap design and execution that allow for consistency in preservation of function and pleasing cosmetic outcomes.

Description

The session will consist of multiple lectures, each covering one of the basic types of flaps: advancement, rotation, transposition, V-Y, interpolation, and tunneled. Each speaker will review basic elements of tissue biomechanics as they pertain to the specific flap type and review techniques for appropriate flap design and execution. The lectures will be provided in a case based-fashion, illustrating successes and, possibly, failures. Attendees should have a working knowledge of surgical dermatology, including an understanding of basic flaps and grafts.
