Hands-On Cadaver Intensive Course in Orthognathic Surgery and Ancillary Procedures
Over recent years, the treatment of maxillofacial conditions with orthognathic surgery has undergone a revolution. The reach and objectives of this kind of surgery have been redefined so as to cover three basic pillars:
- Correcting underlying malocclusion and skeletal discrepancy.
- Upper airway obstruction management.
- Harmonisation of facial aesthetics.
At present, there are currently no continuing education programmes in this field in any University, either in Spain or abroad. This hands-on course aims to provide participants with a comprehensive practical overview of all the techniques involved in the orthognathic surgery spectrum, including ancillary procedures to optimise aesthetic results. To this effect, we have designed a predominantly practical course using cryopreserved cadaver heads.
