Core Skills: Vascular Surgery Workshop

The Vascular Surgery Trainee Workshop provides Vascular and General Surgical  Trainees the opportunity to learn new skills in a range of vascular surgery procedures. It is a full-day hands on cadaveric workshop with a focus on surgical dissection, with vascular anastomosis on animal tissue.

Limited places are available for Service Registrars with strong surgical experience.

The Workshop’s anatomy-based program aims to provide both Vascular and General Surgical Trainees with an understanding of historical and contemporary surgical techniques, the immediate anatomy of the structures operated on and adjacent structures which may be involved in the event of other co-morbidities or
complications. It utilises a combination of pre-reading, discussion and dissection.

Workshop Content

Anatomy relating to:
• The neck
• The abdomen
• The femoral triangle
Prior to each procedure there will be an anatomy short session and a brief  discussion of specific objectives to be reached.
The following procedures will be demonstrated and performed:
• Exposure of the common carotid artery and its bifurcation +/- patch closure
• Approaches to the infra-renal aorta and its branches
• Aortic grafting
• Vascular exposure in the femoral triangle proceeding to high saphenous
ligation and profundaplasty
• Benchtop anastomotic techniques using porcine aorta
• Below knee amputation (subject to availability of cadaveric material)
