Event Information

Description:

A ticket is required for participation. Register online here.

Many "complex" lacerations are referred to specialists either unnecessarily, prematurely, or simply repaired improperly. This case-based course is designed to increase the participant's scope of practice in managing complex acute traumatic wounds. By exploring common, but frequently problematic, cases from injury and management to post‐repair follow‐up, participants will learn specialized suturing techniques that will improve patient outcomes.
 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Demonstrate multi-layer cosmetic wound closure techniques
⦁ Assess and repair lacerations using a variety of closure methods including simple interrupted, intradermal, vertical, and horizontal mattress
⦁ Practice and perform appropriate wound excision and debridement techniques
⦁ Practice and perform repair of single flap, multiple flap, stellate, and parallel lacerations
⦁ Apply important pearls and ‘tricks of the trade’ to improve wound closure outcomes
