This new cadaveric workshop will provide hands on mentoring through comprehensive demonstration and practical surgical sessions, providing a thorough understanding of neck anatomy and related approaches.

Faculty will provide participants with expert, practical feedback. The  highly realistic cadaveric models provide near normal tissue properties for surgical approaches.

Workshop Content
A detailed anatomical session utilising neck prosections will be followed by eight demonstration and practical cadaveric sessions covering the following procedures:

  • Skin flap elevation
  • Sternomastoid dissection
  • Nerve identification: accessory nerve, superficial cerical plexus, transverse cervical and greater auricular nerves
  • Posterior triangle and thoracic duct dissection
  • Carotid sheath dissection
  • Thyroid - lateral and superior pole dissection

All practical sessions are preceded by video demonstrations of these procedures.  Small groups of three participants per cadaveric station will rotate throught the eight sessions.
