The 3 day course consists of compact lectures which cover the theoretical basics for the following extensive hands-on wet-labs with a unique 1 : 1 ratio (participant : cadaver):
• Suturing techniques (corneal, scleral, lid, lacrimal)
• Lid reconstruction (skin grafts)
• Lacrimal reconstruction (silicon ring intubation, bicanaliculary intubation to the nose)
• Corneal laceration and perforations
• Corneal transplantation
• Scleral rupture
• Keratoplasty à chaud
• Globe rupture
Human tissue (cadaver) that makes this course unique: it´s not frozen or modified in any way and not older than 24-48 hours.
The microsurgical training modules will be accompanied by lectures. Each participant will have a minimum duration of 14 hours for extensive hands-on surgeries on the human tissue.
