Advances and Techniques in Microtia and Ear Reconstruction
Advances and Techniques in Microtia and Ear Reconstruction will offer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, otolaryngologists and other interested clinicians and students an overview of the basics of and recent advances of microtia treatment. Following lectures, this workshop will include an expert-led hands-on training activity in which participants will carve a 3-D ear framework out of precise rib cartilage models. Akira Yamada, MD, a world-renowned surgeon in ear reconstruction, will lead the guided activity, along with Stephen Hoff, MD, an otolaryngologist and surgeon at Lurie Children’s who specializes in microtia treatment. Participants can gain up to 6.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Plastic and reconstructive surgeons, otolaryngology (head and neck) surgeons, students and other physicians in relevant specialties.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to do:
- Identify proper location of a newly reconstructed ear
- Design and build a 3D framework for the ear
- Create spiral curves in the ear
- Assemble a well-vascularized thin skin envelope
- Identify and describe the microtia and aural atresia condition, and best treatment options
